The one new edition to the party is the Indian Grand Prix. The Jaypee track near Delhi (see below) is expected to become one of the fastest circuits on the calendar, and I very much look forward to seeing it.

But I can’t help but feel that 20 races is just too many. But then again with no in-season testing the drivers are going to want to cover as many miles on the track as possible.

In other F1 news, there will be no new teams on the grid next season.

The Indian GP track. Looks like an upside-down Nürburgring doesn’t it?
