It's just Bernie being Bernie. This happens every time there's a new GP, I wouldn't take notice until a couple months before the actual race.

That is what I meant by my post, I worded it funny.

Bernie's making a right nuisance of F1, this race would we run if he didn't decide to make this happen.

I think F1 would be a much nicer place without Bernie.

No. Bernie has made Formula 1 what it is, and despite his flaws, you can't take that away from him.

This. You don't have to like him - I certainly don't - but he has done a lot for the sport.

And a few months later, the GP will be on.

We all know how this works. We have seen this PLENTY of times before.

He may have made it what it is today, but now, he's trying to drag F1 to countries that don't give a shit (Bahrain) and never will, he's hired an incredibly mediocre circuit designer who puts together tracks that have the charisma of deflated basketballs, and he's the one that begged and begged for this GP for years, and now he's pulling the old "it might not happen" crap.

That is a brilliant description of Tilkedromes

As far as I'm aware, the only Grand Prix that are based in countries with little F1 following is Bahrain and UAE. Countries like Korea and India are receiving a mass of new fans, Bernie has brought the sport to international nations (albeit with an incentive). Despite Korea, India, Valencia among others producing very uninteresting races, there are still 15 Grand Prix which are fantastic to drive on and to watch (4 of which are Tilke circuits). As Retrogade said, Bernie always repeats himself. The "it might not happen" bs has been used on more than one occasion.

Protip: Make sure you know a race is going to happen for sure before you announce it.

And you guys say NASCAR disappoints fans, they don't do this stupid crap. I was excited about possibly going to this race.

They never have a chance to, since they only add a new race once every fifteen years.

Again, Bernie does this every single time there's a new race. It's pretty much become part and parcel of becoming a new venue. Given how hard he and the teams have pushed for a race in that area, I highly doubt they'd pack it in this early.
