(cafetheology.org) – Formula One racing director Charlie Whiting makes Argentina hope for a return to the royal class. The Briton had visited the former Grand Prix circuit in Buenos Aires in the summer to evaluate the chances of a comeback of the race. "I was asked to look at what needs to be done to bring them back to Formula 1 standard," Whiting says about 'Canal F1 Latam'. This desire came from the racing director and compiled a report that is quite a positive testimony , because as far from the standard the distance is not at all. "As you can expect from a track that has not had Formula 1 for 20 years, a few things have to be done – but nothing big," Whiting says. The route has to be more interesting than in the 1990s, when you were on a 4.259 kilometer between 1995 and 1998 long variant, which had hardly provided for action. Whiting can imagine that parts of the longer 5,968-kilometer variant, which was driven from 1974 to 1981, were used.

This still led with two long straights and a long-drawn curve around a lake and was therefore significantly faster than the angled Micky mouse variant of the 90s. "It would make a super circuit for Formula 1 if it could be realized," Whiting says. "The plan is to have a much faster course than the end of the 90s." According to the Race Director, Argentina could return to the Formula 1 calendar as early as 2019. "Now it's up to the promoters to see if they can do it." The Autodromo Juan y Oscar Galvez was with a few interruptions a total of 21 times the venue of a Formula 1 Grand Prix. In 1953, Alberto Ascari was the first winner to win the list, while Michael Schumacher was the last winner in Buenos Aires in 1998. Rekordsieger is local hero Juan Manuel Fangio, who won from 1954 to 1957 four times in a row.
