Has to be Monaco. Whenever I hear 'Monaco', I think of Formula 1.

2nd if you dont count the "other" option which makes up a few different tracks. I'd say thas about right to, Monaco is unbeatable, but Melbourne is better than the rest.
You're right, turns 10-13 are amazing, and so is the high speed (i think) turn 5, though thats been made slightly easier by the new v8's.
But they are the only real highlights of the track.
How you can claim this to be the best (or 2nd best) track on the planet is beyond me. I'm as biased as the next guy, but im not blind enough to think Silverstone is the best f1 circuit in the world (though it would be up there once they update its facilities).

Right, it takes years and years of smoke, treadmarks and crashes for a circuit to get itself a name

I think Spa definitely takes top prize. It's back next year thank god!

My favourites are Spa, Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, Silverstone and Monaco for it's beautiful setting although it's really boring.

The Spanish GP in Barcelona yesterday was pretty dam boring! Apart from Monaco, it's probably the circuit with the least amount of overtaking oppertunities! It just makes for a very predictable race! Not impressed at all!

The only way they are getting away with it at the moment is because the state government is "sworn to secrecy by Bernie Ecclestone."

Long term, if we want to keep grand prix racing in Melbourne we need to build a track that will make a profit/surplus not a massive loss year in year out.
Then move it back to Adelaide. Melbourne seems to brag a lot about it, yet as you say with "a massive loss year in year out". Albert Park is a shitty circuit anyways, too narrow no overtaking action.

My favorites would have to be Spa and Istanbul. Beauties.

Yep Istanbul is the one for me too. I like the new tracks is asia a lot to, bahrein and china specialy. Malasia is very good to, but Istanbul with the long left corner (going in with 290, breaking to 230 and then building up to 305 k is just stunning!)
The old European tracks bring a lot of history with them, but a lot of races are just plane boring, naming Cataluna, Brittain, San Marino, Monaco, France and specialy Hungary. They might as well make the qualifing result the end result, because overtaking is allmost inposible at these tracks.
From the 'old' European circuits Spa/ Belgium is defuantly my favourite.
