Sammy Jones retires at the end of 2015

Well, this one is rather simplistic: Jones has been very big on Terry Hawkin, who has so far performed to expectations, and he is not getting younger (at the end of 2015, he'd just have had his 37th birthday). Although whether he retires will depend on Daniel Melrose either starting to improve or Jones finding a better substitute. Klon 00:53, 24 May 2012 (EST)

  • Is Hawkins superlicenced yet? Otherwise, this would be likely jossed. FMecha 01:19, 24 May 2012 (EST)
  • Yep, multiple race wins in both F3RWRS and F2RWRS and second in the 2014 F3RWRS championship. I'm not saying anything though! ;) AndreaModa 01:26, 24 May 2012 (EST)
  • Melrose himself isn't a guarantee to stay at Jones Racing beyond 2015 either, for that matter. Whilst the man himself has said he wants to stay at Jones Racing for a while yet, he's commercially astute enough to know what a Melrose/Rhys Davies lineup for 2016 could mean financially. Wizzie 16:28, 24 May 2012 (EST)

Daniel Melrose didn't leave F1 at the end of 2010 through sheer free will alone.

Once you think about it, mere logic alone doesn't quite explain why he would go from F1 to the F1RWRS. The kid was on his way to winning his fifth world title and already made F1 his personal playground. He had enough money to last several lifetimes thanks to his rolling BMW Sauber contract. Why would he leave all that, especially when he was having such a torrid time adapting to the F1RWRS cars and the 'dental surgery' excuse for missing Spa only held up until he showed up to the German GP the very next week? Wizzie, 22:00, 24th May (EST)

  • The only question would be, who's having dirt on Melrose? The solution is obvious: Frank Zimmer. Why, you ask? Well, it is obvious - if someone were to force Melrose to leave, why'd he go to F1RWRS, a series with a, at that time, very questionable future and not something relatively safe as IndyCar or different types of racing, such as DTM? So it must have been someone who wanted Melrose to go to F1RWRS. Enter the Zimmer brothers who realised that having a name such as Melrose join F1RWRS on a permanent basis might be a significant boost to viewership. Therefore, after failing deals with names such as Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel, he figured he might as well stoop as low as blackmail and so... Klon 21:38, 24 June 2012 (EST)

In the 2015 F1RWRS season, it will be ArrowTech that survives, not Acuri

Given that both were run by JeremyMcClean (remember, 1-team rule from 2015 onwards) in the forums, and that he also posts about Danish terrorist attacks to Acuri, it is possible that Acuri will not continue in 2015. (And Acuri maybe have to merge with ArrowTech, although this is very likely to be Jossed). FMecha 02:31, 25 May 2012 (EST)

  • It's pretty much been a guarantee that McClean will be (wrongly, in my opinion) letting go of Acuri at the end of the year. The real question is what will be the ultimate fate of the team. Wizzie 16:23, 25 May 2012 (EST)

Dagnall's car is turbocharged

There's only one plausible explanation on why Nathan Scott and Ben Fleet is unable to catch Dagnall this season and it's a possible turbocharger in Dagnall's car. Zero points for Scott, 10 for Fleet, 52 for Dagnall. You can't explain that. Jeremy 07:45, 25 May 2012 (EST)

  • Jossed. The Dagnall cars have always been turbocharged. *Facepalm* Wizzie 07:56, 25 May 2012 (EST)
  • I would suggest then that the turbocharger in Dagnall's car has an illegal, smaller wastegate, and the resulting extra compression is boosting the HP in the lead DGNgineering car. Kostas22 08:21, 25 May 2012 (EST)
  • Like Celicagate (you know, the controversy about the allegedy illegal turbocharger in the ST205 WRC car)? FMecha 22:48, 25 May 2012 (EST)
  • Indeed, like Celicagate. Except only on one car instead of both. And without a whiny Frenchman involved. Kostas22 04:17, 26 May 2012 (EST)
  • Occam's Razor disagrees - it's just that Mark Dagnall is the designated #1 driver in a way that would Michael Schumacher look away disgusted. There is a reason Kay Lon repeatedly accused Mark of leeching off his father and it's not just envy. Klon 07:24, 26 May 2012 (EST)

Alitalia is forcibly blocked from entering F1RMGP

Despite all the best attempts of Il Barone Rampante to enter F1RMGP with their Scuderia Alitalia brand, as new partners to the Scuderia Andrea Coloni team and providing brand new Lancia powerplants in the process, something is bound to go tits up and screw the whole plan, and the sporting body will eventually step in and block IBR from acquiring SAC. Kostas22 08:18, 25 May 2012 (EST)

  • Yeah, the thing going tits up being that Mr Linari suddenly finds himself in the same financial black hole Mr Bahar himself got into by expanding too fast. Then again, unlike Bahar, he could probably apply for a bailout or something like that. Wizzie 16:22, 25 May 2012 (EST)
  • There is no conspiracy regarding finance. Something else, something lurking in the shadows unrelated to finanace is going to screw everything up. But I have no idea what. Kostas22 16:26, 25 May 2012 (EST)
  • This is me in my car when I was 19, and this is the car I had next. (Yes, it was a long time ago. Don't remind me.) So... who do you all think it was who first contacted kostas22 about an F1RMGP/Lancia tie-up, eh? All you have to do, Mr Linari, is say yes or no to a deal between IBR with SAC and/or Minardi, and it'll be job done... then the driver merry-go-round can really start to spin. Half the grid will be affected by who gets the S(A)AC drives for 2015... dinizintheoven 17:02, 25 May 2012 (BST)

Dan BH is a Time Traveler

Think about it. Dan BH appears in 2010 and disappears after one year. Nobody knows his real birth date. Nobody knows where he was born. BH is only described as American. Time travel technology is proven to exist, with the examples of Martin McFry and James Davies. Now, name another driver that is American and has access to time travel technology (e.g. post 2014). Couldn't think of it? How about Dan Greenlaw! Perhaps Dan BH and Dan Greenlaw are one and the same! It would explain BH's mysterious disappearance after 2010 (he had to go back to the present)! It would also explain Greenlaw's semi-miraculous recovery after the F3RWRS Round of Germany last year (when Alberto Donegro tried to kill him). Greenlaw must have gone back in time to recover from his injuries and race himself back into shape before returning in time for the next F3RWRS round! Tristan1117 10:21, 30 May 2012 (EST)

  • If that is indeed the case, then Greenlaw will be excluded from the 2014 F3RWRS season, because, having driven in F1RWRS, it makes him ineligible for the series. Kostas22 18:41, 31 May 2012 (EST)
  • Well, the semi-official story is that BH retired to avoid the public spotlight after 2010. Unless we can find BH and compare him to Greenlaw, the answer may never be known. (I don't think that Dan B remembers that he entered BH way back in 2010.) Tristan1117 13:59, 1 June 2012 (EST)
  • And to build on Kostas' point, it'll piss both me and Lappy off no end and officially put you on our hitlist. Therefore, this is Jossed
It's Jossed. Time travelling makes no sense as it is, if you change one event in the future, certainly he has to have had something from 2010 come back to whatever time he travelled from, causing that item to be shown in the previous time, and causing a whole whack of paradoxes that the world explodes. Besides, he's obviously a CIA agent who attempted (and failed) to spy on Prospec. Jeremy 07:30, 13 June 2012 (EST)
By the way, that's travelling. Jeremy

There will be a exodus at the end of 1996 F1RGP2C season

This is required to fit F1RGP2C's storyline with F1CC. Some drivers that competed in F1RGP2C later competed in F1CC. (Also, don't forget that majority of F1RGP2C and F1CC drivers are time-travelers). FMecha 01:53, 31 May 2012 (EST)

  • Who said that the F1RGP2C is on the same universe as the F1CC? Tristan1117 10:26, 31 May 2012 (EST)
  • So... this is Jossed? My issue is that the point of exodus is so that F1RGP2C would not retcon F1CC (for drivers' career, at least). FMecha 21:17, 31 May 2012 (EST)
  • F1CC needs to be revived... in some way. Never mind trying to track down Jeroen and rescuing the files (somehow), if there's someone who knows how the game works, set it up again and complete the last season! dinizintheoven 17:57, 31 May 2012 (BST)
  • Dammit, just when I got my own driver in the series! Nuppiz 20:09, 1 June 2012 (EST)

The future of Kamaha Racing

With Kamaha likely to be sold off, if the name has to be kept, then I expect to see "Red Bull Kamaha World Race Team" on the grid next season Kostas22 18:43, 31 May 2012 (EST)

SuperAguri has came back so Kamaha will continue under its current ownership, but I will still probably get a team once the Arrowtech/Acuri situation is worked out. 10:46, 1 June 2012 (EST) (Eurobrun)

  • With that, what Kostas said is officially... Jossed. FMecha 21:56, 4 June 2012 (EST)

The drivers in SuperAguri's unnamed series are time travellers

You have Shinobu Katayama, Douglas Mann, and David Kozco - all later races in other series in the future. FMecha 04:31, 5 June 2012 (EST)

  • And that's just scratching the surface as you have Sebas Groves, the Australian brigade in Davies, Melrose and Macklin plus a whole host of other characters. Question is, how the hell did we get the time machines to manage all this without spontaneously combusting?
  • Wizzie? You may want to see F1RGP2C history. That maybe also how F1CC time travelling works. FMecha 02:13, 7 June 2012 (EST)
  • I have already explained that it is an alternative universe, so they are not time travelling as they exist in a different dimension to the drivers in F1RWRS, etc. SuperAguri 15:14, 23 June 2012 (EST)
  • That renders this WMG quasi-Jossed, because of conflicting opinion of yours and dr-baker's (dr-baker's driver believed in time-travel, ask Mr. McFry). FMecha 01:58, 27 June 2012 (EST)

The F1CC is a video game.

I may be venturing deep into meta-fictional territory here, but here goes nothing. The F1CC is actually a video game competition between the drivers of the F1RWRS. On their off days, the drivers all gather together on a LAN server and play F1 Challenge to determine the winner of the virtual racing title. This actually take place over present-day seasons but exists in-game as 1997. You may note that Giovanni Roda is actually a competent driver in reality, he just trolled everyone by performing like crap in the F1CC. Before you all joss this, think of how useful continuity-wise this would be. It would avert the time-travel paradox that Douglas Mann and Tristan Jung would create if the F1RGP2C enters 1997. It would fit the complete lack of F1CC data in driver bios (I could find only two mentions of the series, in Tristan Jung's profile and Rhys Davies'). It would also explain the out of character behavior of James Davies, among other examples. All the other non-mentioned drivers (Mitch Herrtz, anyone?) are random people who happened to find the server. Tristan1117 10:07, 10 June 2012 (EST)

  • John Zimmer happened to compete, too. FMecha 00:41, 11 June 2012 (EST)
  • This sounds good, I approve! Nuppiz 02:30, 11 June 2012 (EST)
  • I like this as well. The reason I haven't really bothered with these other series is because of conflicts like this, so this is a good explanation to sort out one of them! AndreaModa 05:16, 12 June 2012 (EST)
  • And presumably, the reason why we don't have F1CC is that the drivers got bored? Jeremy 13:37, 13 June 2012 (EST)
  • Simply put, the server crashed. JK said that F1CC ended because his computer BSODed. So, that is all. FMecha 23:12, 19 June 2012 (EST)

Daniel Melrose is intentionally throwing the Drivers' Championship for Nicolas so he can get the MRT drive

Think about it. It makes sense on the financial level - A driver who runs his own team drives for them as well. Just like Andrea Acuri only probably a bit faster as well. And with Davies, Nicolas and Spencer constantly retiring, it's presumed that Melrose is probably tampering with the car so that A) the drivers leave in disgust à la Douglas Mann at Williams in the GP2 alternate series or B) They are presumed to be slow and get replaced by Melrose. It's obvious that MRT has a good car, it's probably that Melrose wants to take credit for all the success or wants to win a championship very badly in the F1RWRS. It also explains his sudden dropout from ArrowTech and his all but confirmed exit from Jones. He's been going to other teams on purpose so that people think he's giving other drivers an opportunity, when in fact they are not. 07:20, 13 June 2012 (EST)

  • I'm afraid I can joss that as he's already signed a contract for Jones Racing for 2015! AndreaModa 08:08, 13 June 2012 (EST)
Then again, he did the same for ArrowTech and left...
  • That's because Melrose and Prince Falik didn't get along. At all. And he intends on honouring his Jones contract for 2015. Hell, he's actually considering taking up an option for 2016 as well. Wizzie 15:20, 13 June 2012 (EST)
  • Now with Melrose voiding his contract with CJR, I see this highly likely jossed. FMecha 00:17, 3 July 2012 (EST)
  • And Davies isn't constantly retiring, he's only had one race for them! TheMaskedLapwing 16:23, 13 June 2012 (EST)
  • With MRT wanting to offer services to other teams (oo-er missus), I can see Jones getting the nice friendly security gaurd to help his bottom meet the pavement outside CJR HQ. So Melrose sacked, Melrose bumping one of his drivers off and becoming second driver. With MRT nearly winning both championship, why would Melrose want to drive for a midfield team like CJR anyway? Does he like mediocrity?SuperAguri 04:54, 26 June 2012 (EST)

Acuri and ArrowTech will merge

A news published by F1RWRS Comission official suggested that Andrea Acuri has bought rights to the ArrowTech name. So, despite Jeremy's insistence to seperate both teams, there is a possibility that both teams could merge for next year. FMecha 20:50, 13 June 2012 (EST)

  • Pretty much confirmed - see the F1RWRS thread and related articles for details. FMecha 04:22, 14 June 2012 (EST)

Phoenix McAllister, Barii Mori, and Alessandro Linari are 'axis of evil' according to Sammy Jones

These three guys have spat with Jones, and since Jones' rival are now three with addition of Linari (previously it was only Mori and McAllister) they can be considered as Jones' axis of evil. FMecha 23:10, 19 June 2012 (EST)

  • Haha yeah, I'd run with that! AndreaModa 23:44, 19 June 2012 (EST)

Zakspeed to not pull out at end of the season

After 2 years of domination, the Zakspeed company will not pull their engine out of F1RWRS to stay on a winning high. The unturbocharged straight 4 engine will be down on power but Mark Dagnall wants a bit of a challenge. :D SuperAguri 15:31, 23 June 2012 (EST)

Pacific will leave the F1RGP2C after the 1996 season

This is more of a poll than a theory. With Stewart and MasterCard Lola coming in for 1997, that leaves fifteen teams on the F1RGP2C grid. Of course, this is impossible within Grand Prix 2. That means that one team has to leave the F1RGP2C at the end of the season. I think it should be Pacific considering all the shady Russian businessmen surrounding the team and the team's poor results. Forti is also a possibility. Basically, I think that Pacific is going to go but if anyone can give me a reason for another team withdrawing, they should post now.

  • Wasn't DAMS nothing more than a filler team anyhow? Let them bite the dust. Klon 08:24, 26 June 2012 (EST)
    • I completely disagree with Klon, I would personally choose to get rid of both Forti and Pacific and leave the grid at 26 cars. Besides, getting rid of DAMS would probably be unfair on Shizuka. Also, if you really need a 14th team may I suggest Dome, if I remember correctly they were supposed to enter in 1997 before the project got scrapped. (If you do enter Dome can I call first dibs as I think I have a really good idea for them and I am getting rid of Williams at the end of the year anyway probably) ~EuroBrun~
      • Well, getting rid of teams is always unfair because they are all run by users. Give Shizuka the Stewart team, would make him happier than DAMS could. Furthermore Pacific or Forti are cooler than DAMS ... DAMS, what kind of team is that anyhow? :-P Klon 02:13, 27 June 2012 (EST)
      • As the founder and moderator of the wild mass guessing page, I agree with your idea on Dome. I've unrealistically predicting/hoping that Barii Mori could drive for Dome in F1RGP2C, considering his outings in F1CC and the related wild mass guess that F1CC is actually an LAN game. FMecha 01:56, 27 June 2012 (EST)
        • Now that I think about it, Forti is probably the most suited to leaving. Pointrox doesn't show up that often and the team is fated to fail in reality Tristan1117 05:54, 27 June 2012 (EST)

Melrose to go to MRT in 2015

Seems as if Melrose is having yet another spat with a team, it seems as if the replacement for Spencer/Davies is Melrose. With him running his own team, he doesn't need to worry about going with other team's policies, and besides, the MRT is faster than the Jones' car anyways. 10:25, 26 June 2012 (EST)

  • This is the third time you've posted and not left a username and, unlike Tommy or Lappy, I will pull the trigger if necessary. Other than that, it really is a watch this space moment. Wizzie 16:37, 26 Junes 2012 (EST)
  • Why? He hasn't posted anything malicious yet.
Anyways, I consider this jossed on the basis that Davies already has the drive and Melrose probably wouldn't sack him or Nicolas to take his seat. Jeremy 08:44, 27 June 2012 (EST)

Best In The World is the German council of Tropico Grand Prix

We don't know what is actually the Tropico's German council so I guess it would proably be BITW, because Kay Lon and Tropico are run by same member: Klon. FMecha 19:00, 4 July 2012 (EST)

  • Possible. Kay Lon is extremely ego driven, and he would look like a complete assclown if the public found out the most farcical team on the grid was secretly run by said driver who foolishly considers himself the 'Best in the World'. Kostas22 04:38, 8 July 2012 (EST)

Daniel Melrose, Sammy Jones and Jeroen Krautmeir all left the F1RWRS at the end of 2012 because of Chris Dagnall

I'm bored so I think it's time for an outlandish theory.

Anyways, behind the scenes during the 2012 season, F1RWRS Commissioner Pieter Kickert was looking for someone who would be able to take the sport into the future as the stress of the job was taking its tole on the Dutchman. As part of a deal with the Zimmers and Kickert to bring him to the F1RWRS in 2011, Daniel Melrose was given a one use only option to become the Commissioner at any time, given that he ended all association on-track with the series and only with unanimous support of the F1RWRS team owners. Melrose all but became the Commissioner by the end of 2012, having already signed the retirement papers from driving by about mid-September and getting ready to secretly sell the entire MRT operation to Jeroen Krautmeir and his Precision Motorsports outfit on the promise that Phillippe Nicolas got the drive.

At the 11th hour however, a challenger appeared for the top job. That man was Daniel Prieto. Unlike Melrose who planned an evolutionary approach for the short term, Prieto had a much more radical agenda to make the series an even bigger success than it already was. All the team owners stayed steadfast to Melrose and his more steady growth approach except for one; Chris Dagnall. Unbeknownst to his boss Sammy Jones, Dagnall already had a team in the works to give his son Mark a drive in 2013. To compound matters, the entire situation had to be sorted out by 12pm on the 21st of October; one hour before race start for the Bud 500 otherwise the 2013 season, and the future of the sport itself, would have been in doubt.

Lo and behold, the deadline approaches at Indianapolis and Melrose is 2000 miles away in a San Francisco hospital recovering after collapsing at the previous round in Laguna Seca. It turned out it was actually his second concussion in as many weeks after an undetected minor concussion after all his major shunts in testing the week before. Without Melrose to make his case, Sammy Jones stepped in to argue for him. Even with the help of strong supporter Krautmeir, Prieto and Dagnall won at literally the last minute, with the agreement signed just three minutes before the deadline elapsed.

And what of the protagonists? First of all, Melrose was basically backed into a corner with everything to lose. He couldn't simply slot himself back into MRT for 2013 because, technically, it wasn't his team anymore. Therefore, he did the only honourable thing he could do and publically announced his retirement from driving. Soon enough, it turned into effectively a 10 minute retirement as Krautmeir, disgusted with all the polticial shenanigans behind the scenes, packed up shop, sold the team back to Melrose and left without a trace. But not before giving Melrose the ultimate 'up yours' by signing on former F1RWRS champ Nathanael Spencer, the very man that beat Melrose to the title in 2011, to a race seat. That attached with a clause in Nicolas' contract with guaranteed him a race seat in 2013 should either Krautmeir or Melrose were to leave meant Melrose was checkmated out of the equation by his equally astute former protegee. Melrose quickly found a drive at ArrowTech and was doing fine there before Prince Falik showed up on the scene. The rest, they say, is history.

Sammy Jones, more frustrated at what the new regulations meant for him than at the politics, sold off his team as soon as he possibly could to the one man who he trusted the team; Chris Dagnall. Sammy never had a problem with Chris for what happened as he had all the respect in the world for his fellow Brit and what he did. He simply felt Chris simply did what benefited him the most and he probably would have done the same thing if the roles were reversed. Regardless, suddenly, Chris had all the trump cards with the Commissioner on side and having just inherited one of the best teams in the competition. Jones did eventually have a change of heart and reentered the series and ended up being back on the road to success.

And finally, yes this does tie in with the earlier post about how management managed to drag Melrose over to the F1RWRS in the first place. User:Wizzie 23:30 July 9th 2012 (EST)

Jossing this on many theories. Here's the rundown:
  • If Prieto had the support of only Dagnall, and everyone else were rooting for Melrose, why did Kickert sign with Prieto? Sure, it helped out the sport in the end, but how did Dagnall have anything to do with this?
  • What does Melrose's second concussion have to do with Dagnall?
  • Dagnall couldn't have possibly done this to get a championship-winning team. Jones only sold it off since he couldn't be bothered working with the new regulations. Again, Dagnall had little to do with it.
This all seems like coincidences to me. I doubt Chris Dagnall is the next Bernie Madoff, and even if he did plan with Prieto to attempt to get rid of Krautmeir, Melrose, and Jones, at least one of the muppets would have found out and pulled out of their original plans. Especially Jones. (Also, I doubt this "mess" wouldn't have happened if Krautmeir decided to stick with the new regulations, since so many new teams rised and took the most out of the simplest opportunities in political turmoils. [ArrowTech, Dagnall Racing, Gillet, Kamaha, MRT in 2014, Foxdale to an extent, etc.] ) Jeremy 13:05, 10 July 2012 (EST)
1. Prieto initially had the support of Dagnall but over the course of the next few months, the teams started to switch sides into two major camps. All the smaller teams switched their support to Prieto in the run-up to Indy and his radical plans for the future as they saw it as an opportunity to take advantage of a fresh start whilst all the top teams sided with the relatively safe hands of Melrose. Eventually, the main sticking point that got Prieto over the line was the grid sizes for 2013 and beyond. The grid size had recently been increased to 26 and whilst Prieto was willing to stick to that, Melrose was planning on reducing it to 22. As to why though is anyone's guess.
2. Melrose was the only one who really knew his plan inside out, which makes sense because he created it. Whilst Jones and Krautmeir would have made a convincing argument, many believe that if he hadn't had that concussion, Melrose probably would have done a better job of arguing his case than either of them. Rumour also has it that the second concussion did something to his ability to feel emotions and, as a result, suddenly acquired much shorter fuse and a much itchier trigger finger than he used to have.
3. It was never Dagnall's goal to get a championship winning team, it was just a massive bonus in getting regulations that would have favoured him anyway.
It wasn't a malicious attempt to get rid of people on the part of any parties as they all genuinely believed what they were doing was for the betterment of the sport but, in the end, someone had to be the fall guy and Melrose ended up being the only one who really lost a lot from it. It pretty much also covers the background of MRT's entire history post-2012 as it explains why the BMW P88 was so rubbish (It was a last-minute botch-job to fit in the new regulations), it explains why Melrose was so quick to fire Spencer in 2014 and why Melrose has constantly been a thorn in the side of the Commissioner ever since 2012.

2015 F1RWRS Schedule Speculation

Thought I think up what I think could be the 2015 F1RWRS Calendar:

  1. Australia - Mount Panorama
  2. Brazil - Jacarepagua (or however you spell it)
  3. USA - Watkins Glen OR Long Beach OR Road America (can't decide which one)
  4. Monaco - Duh.
  5. Belgium - Spa
  6. European GP @ Donington OR Turkey @ Istanbul
  7. France - Paul Ricard
  8. Germany/Bavaria - Norisring
  9. Britain - Brands Hatch
  10. Italy - Monza
  11. North Sea/Netherlands - Zandvoort
  12. Macau
  13. China - Shanghai Street Circuit
  14. Japan - Fuji
  15. Spain - Jerez (surprised this hasn't happened yet)
  16. Tasman - Adelaide

  • Spain won't be happening any time soon as the F2RWRS race there last year wasn't THAT good to start off with and the Tasman GP will still be the season opener. Turkey will probably take Spain's place on the calender as the first European race of the season and the order of the races after Monaco will probably be France, GB, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium and Italy with the European GP being dropped completely for Mexico. Finally Macau and Japan will probably swap places to give the F1RWRS a bigger marque event for the Final championship race of the season which means the calender will look something like this:
  1. Tasman - Adelaide
  2. Australia - Mount Panorama
  3. Brazil - Jacarepagua
  4. Mexico - Mexico City
  5. USA - Long Beach
  6. Turkey - Istanbul
  7. Monaco
  8. France - Paul Ricard
  9. Britain - Brands Hatch
  10. Germany/Bavaria - Norisring
  11. Netherlands - Zandvoort
  12. Belgium - Spa
  13. Italy - Monza
  14. Japan - Fuji
  15. China - Shanghai Street Circuit
  16. Macau Wizzie 12:53, 28 July 2012 (EST)
  • That's quite good there. Question is, why are the two Australian races bunched up together? It would make much more sense to spread it out more. Jeremy 13:31, 28 July 2012 (EST)
  • Saves on travel costs to have them back-to-back. And with the Tasman GP one of the biggest events of the motorsport calender (Which is set to get even bigger in 2015 as the V8 Supercars are now running the Clipsal 500 alongside it having moved back to the GP configuration) and NSW being the home of all six of the Australian F1RWRS drivers (with 4 of them living within two hours of Bathurst), both races will remain on the calender for a long time to come.

  • Two little things that are wrong with your proposals: first off, no, Wizzie, you won't get your Turkish race no matter how much you hype it (for HWNSNBM knows what reason, Istanbul Park is an awful track). Brazil will take place in Brasilia again as it did last year, aerond likes that track and the race was pretty decent. Although odds are you mean the track in Brasilia since it has the same name as Jacarepagua... Klon 23:22, 28 July 2012 (EST)

Just out of curiosity, why is the Adelaide race called the Tasman GP, I live about 45 minutes away from the track and I can assure you that it is nowhere near Tasmania. Also, the fact that all the Australian F1RWRS drivers are from NSW will change when the Hamiltons get into the F1RWRS. ~EuroBrun~

  • It's been called that since 2010 back when there was also two races in Australia (the Tasman GP in Adelaide and the Australian GP at Eastern Creek back in the day when Sydney was the home of the Commission) and the name's stuck ever since. In short, it's more a historical thing more than anything else. Wizzie 16:19, 28 July 2012 (EST)
