So weird to have Zandvoort back again. A great track in its own right but it's hard not to associate it with Roger Williamson. sad.gif (if you don't know, don't watch it)

Roger Williamson, saw the video a few years back just awful. Yes it is weird to back Zandvoort back thought it may be Assen if it ever returned to Holland. The Max factor working there.

Given the influence driver popularity has over track choice it is frankly amazing Finland has never run a GP. (including pre 1950)

Re: Roger Williamson - if you can find it and haven't seen it before you should watch Champions Forever - sometimes called One By One. It's a documentary of the 1973 season that focuses on 4 drivers in particular. (Not Williamson). Not one of them makes it to the final race. It's brilliant but not exactly fun

Regarding Finland, I know they'll be a Kymi Ring that will host MotoGP in 2020. Maybe in the future, it could host F1.

Talks about a Morocco GP as well, would be good to have a race in Africa so all the continents are represented.

Not sure how they're gonna stick to a 21-race calendar at this rate though with Vietnam & Netherlands coming in next season. I guess Germany & Mexico will be dropped next season which is a shame as Germany is one of the few tracks that consistently produces decent races & I live for that stadium section at Mexico even if the racing is average.

That would be the first time since their only Grand Prix in 1958 that they'll be an Morocco Grand Prix.

Will Max have a 2016/2018 or a 2017? About the only excitement I'll be able to muster for this is watching to see if anyone clips the barrier
