In the past couple of weeks I've surprised myself. You see, I consider myself to be a bit of a traditionalist, particularly when it comes to motor racing. But all this talk about the changing face of the Formula One calendar hasn't worried me one bit.
One of the few stories doing the rounds at the moment is of an exodus away from the European heartland to 'new markets', with particular focus on the loss of Imola. It's off the calendar for 2007 and it might never come back.
The calendar subject is one that has often raised its head over the past 10 years - particularly during fallow news weeks such as now!
FIA president Max Mosley repeated the lines he has always taken on this subject when quizzed about it in Munich last week.
