Vote: What Races Should F1 Keep Or Lose On The Calendar?

Okay, imagine it. You’ve become F1’s new CEO, and you’ve been given total control over the F1 calendar. It doesn’t matter if a circuit has a contract, you have the power to keep it, remove it or put it on rotation every couple of years. 

With fears that F1 could continue to add new races in the coming years, adding to an already busy 23-race calendar, here at WTF1 we’re interested in seeing what circuits the fans actually want to see year on year and which they’re happy to say bye bye to 👋

Have your say using the polls below!

BAHRAIN – Under contract until 2036

  • I would love to see a track in the United States in the mid-west (Ohio,Indiana,Michigan,Illinois,etc) or East coast. Miami and COTA are just so far for people that want to go to races.

    • I’m well aware that Montreal isn’t close to the mid-west, but it is an option? Chicago to Montreal is a 2 hour flight.

  • Memo Lestas says:

    Not having Turkey, Malaysia and Germany on the schedule should be considered a federal offence. Personally, I would love to have Argentina and South Africa on the calendar; on the one hand we would have a Hat-Trick of Latin countries (Brazil, Argentina and Mexico), and on the other, F1 would visit the 5 continents.

  • Emily (NanakiEmi) 🏳️‍🌈 says:

    Ok lets be realistic. I love F1. 30 Races a year would be amazing as a spectator but the people we would be hurting are the engineers and pit crews. They struggled at 20 and at 23 it is to much.

    We should reduce the race count back down to 20 and change to having “core” and “rotation” circuits.

    10 Core tracks with all the classics like silverstone, spa, monza etc… that are there every season.

    20 Rotation tracks that let us go to different parts of the world every other year and bring F1 to more people.

    That gives us 30 tracks total and opens F1 up to more markets without having to drop the major European circuits that have so much history.

    It also reduces the load on the teams and should reduce costs with 3 less races per season.

  • The best idea is to keep the “Historic” tracks (Like Monza or Silverstone) on the calendar permanently, and then swap out another set of races with either new tracks or completely new locations. Japanese GP at Fuji, anyone?

  • Julian Earl says:

    Two races in Italy, two races in the USA….second race in UK! Pipe dream I know as the safety demands and lack of government backing would make it unachievable but imagine F1 sweeping round Paddock Hill Bend again. How about towards the Old Hairpin at Donnington, a slip streaming race around Thruxton even. F1 at Knockhill!! Come on Sturgeon make it happen….

  • Robert Bury says:

    Should have a core group of races that are protected.. Silverstone, Spa, Monza, Sao Paolo. Then ensure we have representation across the globe. So must have a North American race, Australian, Japan, Asian, even African. The US GP should be on a rotating basis so that they can take the race across the US without having several in a season. Likewise, Italy if it wants Imola should rotate with Monza. No country should have more than 1 race a year on the calendar.

  • The Real Saxon says:

    No surprises, despite what domocali thinks, Spa, Monza, Silverstone, Interlagos need to stay in fans eyes

  • Are people suggesting a COTA gets rotated with gimmicky nonsense like Miami or Vegas? I know the US is huge but it’s also next to Mexico and Canada which have races.

  • Definitely an upgraded Hungaroring, Malaysia and I’d love to see a track built in Northern Ireland. It would do wonders for tourism, would boost the already popular motorbike racing and karting scene, and build even closer ties to the UK mainland F1 scene for those of us in the province.

  • Get rid of the tracks that reside in countries with the worst human rights violations. Unfortunately money talks.
