Wouldn't happen on Bernie's watch :wink:

I have done the Malaysian the last few years and the pit girls were quiet a highlight :hubbahubba:

 

Meanwhile.........

 

Vietnam appears to be on track to get a slot on the Formula One calendar with sources suggesting there could be an announcement about a street race in the south-east Asian country in the coming weeks.

This emerged from a busy day of meetings in London yesterday beginning in the afternoon with a gathering of the Formula One Promoters Association in the Sofitel London St James hotel. In 2012 this author broke the news about the creation of the association which represents F1’s 21 race organizers. Their meeting yesterday was followed by a dinner appointment with Liberty Media Corporation which owns F1 and is listed on the Nasdaq with the ticker FWONK.

 

Bangkok has been trying to get on the circuit for years. The backers want a street circuit through the old part of the city. Oh, yeah ... the road surface could really handle hours of F1 cars racing on it. Leave the mo'cycles on the streets to make it more exciting. :)

Thankfully, no. One driver did come here and drive an F1 car through the proposed route. (I forget which one.) That was the end of it. If Malaysia's having trouble keeping their race going, what chance would Bangkok have?
