Monza is amazing, the cathedral of motorsport and the facilities aren't that bad, though I like the Instanbul circuit, plenty of overtaking last year and the drivers seemed to love it

Monaco and Nurburgring are always the most intresting I dont like these new Asian tracks, all the same and very boring. Monaco is always one of the best because its 200mph cars racing through a cities streets, dont get much better than that. Also its the place to be if you want to watch F1 at its best.

Also the Nurburgring because its just a pure race track and is one of the most demanding tracks around. It would be good if they used the full track instead of just parts of it.

The most impressive circuit remains Monaco to me. Granted, you can't overtake there, but the setting is simply amazing. The day when Monaco will disappear from the F1 world tour will be a very sad day to me.

My favorite track will always be Spa. Its amazing layout makes it a driver's and spectator's favorite. Suzuka, Monaco, the old Hockenheim, Silverstone and Monza are other great tracks. Out of the new Tilke designed tracks, the best is Istanbul.

The track that i want out of the F1 calendar is Hungaroring. Races there are often boring.

I'm a Yankee, but Indy just is not, in my opinion, worthy of an F1 race. It should be Laguna Seca. I would like Walkins Glen in New York State, but it cannot be renovated due to it being on some national preservation list.

I wish they could lengthen the front straight at Laguna Seca. Then it would be pretty cool. I'd have to say a Road America with a new grand stand and some FIA approved runoff areas would be up there with Spa as a driver's favorite. That's a course that was made for powerful cars.

My current favorite is Spa

The European racetracks are usually the best, obviously Spa and Monza are classic, I love the long straights and high speed at Monza. Also Silverstone for the most part is cool, but the priory and brooklands corners slow down what is a very fast racetrack. I actually like INdy since the long front straight allows for some overtaking, but turns 8, 9, and 10 ruin any overtaking oppurtunities on the back straight. Sadly, there is probably no where else in America to run it, most proper road courses are in rural areas and dont have the money and facilities to host F1, and Id prefer to stay away from any street or parking lot courses like the failed Dallas, Detroit, Phoenix, and Las Vegas race tracks. Unless someone with loads of money wants to build or buy a ractrack and design it for F1, Indy will continue to be the home of the USGP. Monaco is just a classic, with the speeds so high and the barriers so close it looks like it would be impossible to drive on that track, the scenery is amazing as well.

Hockenheim and the Nurburgring were ruined. While the Hermann Tilke designed tracks have some very nice looking facilities, the courses are a little bland.

Well I love the new shanghai circuit, brilliant design & the architecture is awasome.
Malaysia is another fav of mine. Monaco will always be the feature race of the F1 but racing wise it aint that great, it will always will be full of accidents. Hockenheiem is brilliant.

Spa is my favourite. It has the Eau Rouge corner, one of the best in F1. It's in a league of its own for entertainment in the wet.

Indianapolis for its speed. Monaco for its corners and setting but its too slow.

Adelaide Street Circuit is the best ever.

Eau Rouge is the best corner on any F1 circuit. Monza is the best track. Hockenhiem & Silverstone are shadows of their former glorious selves. Monaco is too tight for F1 but who cares, its Monaco.

Adelaide shat all over Albert Park. Still does.
