Canada dropped from F1 Calendar

What was arguably the most exciting race of the F1 season has been dropped from the 2009 race calendar in favour of more 'circuits' (aka yawnfests) because those bring in more $$$$. No matter that the spectators and events in Montréal were amazing and that the races there were known to be a 'wall for champions,' bringing the drama and exciting unexpected outcomes which make for a TRUE race.

One could argue that it could partly be due to the lack of proper maintenance of the track here, and for that I blame Montréal's laziness and Québec's terrible track record for road maintenance...which also applies to circuit tracks. Honestly, in the end I thought the corner of the track breaking up in this past summer's race proved for some serious excitement.

But let's look at what we're getting in exchange. Abu Dhabi?! Yet another street race that's probably going to be a dull processional? There are now three races in the Middle East and only for the reason that they have way more money that the FIA bigwigs want. Now there are NO races in North America (not a single one! What about true F1 fans here huh?!) which is complete bull! There aren't nearly that many F1 fans out in the Middle East, whoever attends those are just rich oil bastards that go just to look cool!

If it's so 'awkward' for drivers to go to North America for "just one race" then using that logic they should drop the Australia and Brazil races too. Bernie Ecclestone, you're ruining the spirit of F1 and tossing aside your most loyal fans for the sake of padding your retirement funds. Take your Singapore, Spa, Valencia, Bahrain and Abu Dhabi and shove it up your wrinkled midget ass.
