I haven’t talked about Montréal losing it’s Grand Prix yet. Reason one : I don’t care much anymore. Reason two : I think it’s temporary. First, european and asian car makers won’t like to be out of North America and will put on the pressure or split. Secondly, France let go, Canada let go and Shanghai is rethinking it’s involvement. The model can’t be sustained and some combination of manufacturers, organizers and competitors will kick Eccelstone out soonish (or go around him).
Prediction : Grand Prix of Montréal back in 2011 or 2012.
