Last week's suggestion that the Brazilian Grand Prix should be scrapped until concrete steps are taken to ensure the safety and security of F1 personnel travelling to/from the circuit after attacks were mounted on folk from Mercedes, Williams, FIA, Pirelli and Sauber generated support from fans, teams, and the media - and sparked a debate over which race fans would like to see replace it.
Since then, F1 and the FIA have announced that the matter will be discussed at the next World Motorsport Council meeting on December 6 in Paris, but, frankly, this wholly unacceptable state of affairs requires more than "discussion".
Concurrent with publication of the column, Autosport took to Twitter and asked fans which venue(s) they felt should replace Interlagos if push ultimately resulted in shove. Admittedly this mini-survey was aimed at Autosport's social media community and, as such, hardly rates as scientific, but the intriguing outcome is that, in the main, classic circuits rather than modern venues were listed. Most were former F1 hosts.
