Certainly more likely than India. I'd wager more likely than Russia.

I reckon something called the South Korean GP will happen. Too much
effect on the championship races to lose those points, not to mention
all those commercial deals.

The film of the Indian track being constructed was excellent on Saturday,
the way turn one became a huge water feature was something they should
keep. It did have a long way to go to completion.

According to today's (Thur) Autosport magazine, Charlie Whiting will inspect the
circuit on October 11. The final layer of asphalt was due to have been laid
last Tuesday, while work on the pits complex and team facilities is believed
to be complete, although there are some doubts about comms. infrastructure.

FIA are inspecting on October 11. The GP is schedule for  the 24th.
They won't have time to have any kind of serious racing on the track
before then. And so what if they do? If FIA OK the track on the 11th
and then a bunch of F3s tear up the tarmac a week later then what
happens - and what time is there for anything to happen?

F1 is going to an untested track. I'm not sure this a first either.
How much racing had there been at Singapore, or at Abu Dhabi prior to
the F1 cars being let loose?

How do FIA mitigate against the sort of thing we saw at Zolder in the
early 70s when the new surface was clearly not up to the demands posed
by F1 cars?

Assuming that Korea DOESN'T go ahead, could the teams get the cars and
all their gear back to the factory and make the last little
modifications? With the championship almost certainly still in the
balance at that time the little details could be crucial. It would be
a bonus for Fred as well as he'd not have to stretch engines as far.

What happens if the race is cancelled? OK... Bernie will probably get
a huge splodge of wonga. What else? I know what I just said about the
championship being open, but in fact it would not be AS open. There
would be 50 WDC points up for grabs rather than 75, and now I look at
it that way it seems that may be enough to force somebody or other out
of the title race.

Dallas, too.  Pouring quik-crete on the racing line all weekend.

Well, *if* they do better than the Commonweath Games, I'd be shocked.

Brundle, perhaps out of desperation, was suggesting running two races at
one track, or racing at another venue.

Yeah, the loss of the race does mess up the point and title race.
Obviously there are too many combinations to say it favours or hinders
one team and or driver.

What I will be interested to see is in the event that the race is
cancelled, which teams like it and which don't. And will the
championship winners, team and driver, be deemed legitimate? Well, we
know that already. It depends on who, and who people support. Bias
knives will be sharpened.

Shame we cant be told now what the teams think and then see if and how
that changes with the points situation. I can see the self serving teams
having one all mighty clash over this. An attempt at a unified FOTA
decision could get rather fruity.

With this situation I think every one should know exactly what the
situation would be in the event of the race being cancelled up front.
Might save a lot of BS later on. I can see it now. Imagine Alonso is
leading and gets an advantage, it will be Ferrari International
Assistance all over again. If Vettel get the advantage the cry will be
that the FIA and Bernie want a new WDC and or WCC. I'll let others
decide that *** reason for Hamilton getting an advantage.

If they are not careful, this could be real trouble for F1.

Personally, I would like a race run, regardless of where it is. I don't
see why a South Korean branded race cant be held at another circuit.
