    Looks interesting...all cars and engines the same, each country has its own driver and car...21 cars...I think so!

    I've voted yes, but I sure hope it doesn't become the 'new F1'... that would make me lose all interest in no time at all... :D

    I like the idea, but it needs more exposure to challenge the circus that belongs to Mr Ecclestone.

    Cheap and cheerful springs to mind....it's a bit like an upgraded Formula Renault.

    What really needs to be done is a thorough and proper shake-up of F1,with a bit of consultation with the fans,and not the current method of a few team owners and M.Mosley sitting in a smoke-filled room deciding on the next mess.

    Looks like an upgraded F3000/GP2 to me. What I want to see is a full F1 grid of 24 cars!

    It being on Sky limits the audience already

    F1, ignoring its obvious faults, has been quite good for me, with (I think I've spelt it right) Raikkonen v Alonso

    I've not seen much of the A1 stuff, I just hope Sony don't acquire the gaming license like they have with F1!

    agreed...I watched both the F1 and A1GP yesterday.

    The F1 was Booooooring compared to A1GP.

    Yes, it was close racing. To take the lead 8 or so laps from the end the Brazilian car overtook round the outside of a sweeping bend, ballsy move! It was very tight racing almost the whole time with a decent crash (which is one of the main reasons we watch) and plenty of drama from the British team...can't wait for the next race!
