Not looking forward to the New York street race, expect that to mirror Valencia and be a bore.
Bahrain (probably with a few million $ pumped in) returns this season, another snoozefest.
Looking forward to Sky Sports dedicated channel coverage this year.
All races will be uninterrupted (thank god).
But that's in 2013!
I'm worried about the width of that "circuit" and overtaking opportunities, but I do like the elevation changes (the area around what should be "Sector 2" looks like it'll be fun to watch and/or drive in sims).
If the folks in Austin get the Circuit of The Americas finished, I'll be attending my first GP there in November. It's likely that we won't even have the USGP on over-the-air TV here (unlike the Indy races), since it's so late in the year that FOX will be showing the NFL instead.
