F1 city track revolution - Is it the right move?

F1 city track revolution - Is it the right move?

F1 has added a number of city tracks in recent years and we want to know your thoughts, is this right for the sport?

When Liberty Media acquired F1 in 2017, it was quickly announced that the new owners wanted to take the sport to a number of "destination cities".

True to this, three of the five tracks added to the calendar on a permanent basis by Liberty Media have been city-based - the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix in Jeddah, a pair of American races in Miami and Las Vegas.

Imola and Qatar are the only outliers but it is expected that from 2023, the latter event will move from the Losail International Circuit to a street facility in Doha.

It is also possible to argue that Imola would not have rejoined the calendar had it not been for the Covid pandemic.

Given the restrictions of the Concorde Agreement, adding further city-based tracks would likely come at the expense of a permanent racing venue.

But we want to know your thoughts, should F1 be focussing on adding more new city venues?
