Formula One’s European season will kick off at Istanbul Park this year on May 8, only to never return. The lack of attendance and an attempt at a price hike for 2012 has resulted in the organizers cancelling further races. Sebastian Vettel will have to find another circuit to run into his teammate at. Kind of a shame, because the track itself is really very good, even if the races were always a bit lacking in non-accident drama.
