That is not how phuket is pronouced. The "ph" is actually a hard P and the K sounds sorta like a G. It ends up sounding more like Poo-get.

There should be a limit of 20 GPs in a season.  They should have a core of maybe 6 races and the other 14 rotate around to keep things fresh.

My core races would be

Australia
Brazil
Canada
Monaco
Japan
Britain

I hate that they take 4-6 weeks off in the middle of the summer and then complain that the season goes so late into the year.

They'd be done a month earlier if they didn't take off an entire month already.

Give us more races. 24 races in 36 weeks by racing 2 weeks followed by a week off.

They're trying to put too many races on the schedule as-is, and Bernie is squeezing some circuits a little too hard.  Montreal and Spa seem to constantly be on the chopping block, which only makes us root for Bernie's indictment all the more.

Stop trying to run in Bahrain, Korea, and Spain (Valencia OR Barcelona), and tell Russia to fark off - the oligarchs have enough money to travel elsewhere.  Keep Austin, though, because Tilke finally shat on the bullseye with that track.

Melbourne, Inter Lagos, Austin, Montreal, Silverstone, Spa, an alternating Germany, Monza, Singapore, and Suzuka should be on the schedule, without fail, every year.  I'm even willing to add Abu Dhabi to that list.

Please note, I'm open to hearing solutions to racing at Monaco without it counting towards the championship - the circuit's just too small for the cars now.  An all-star race, perhaps?  It might encourage open-wheel drivers to chase the Triple Crown again.

It was certainly a boon for our local private helicopter charter business.   Coke dealers, too.

They take three weeks off in August, not 6.  And that was mandated by the smaller teams because they were drving their engineers to exhaustion, trying to keep up with the big boys.

Also, the current schedule already requires 5 complete equipment kits because they are shipped by boat (only the car frames are shipped by air) from one country to the next.  Racing two weeks out of every 3 would make the series even more cost prohibitive than it already is.

The next Concorde Agreement will have to address the issue of cloning Adrian Newey.

Unfortunately, those clones will still have to be born and grow to become chief engineers.
 
"Well George, this year, the teams are hard to tell apart because the Little Adrians used finger paint for the team colors, so they all look purple with green or yellow clumps"
 "At least it's not as bad as last year's play-doh rear-wing."

That might get Benetton back into F1.
