Enter deafening silence. It’s not like it’s the most iconic, popular GP’s on the calendar and brings in numerous fans every year.
Should it disappear it would leave six races left in Europe, out of 19. And where do the majority of F1 fans live and can attend? Europe.

This is the equivalent of the F.A. saying Blackpool shouldn’t be in the Prem this season.
