Say goodbye to the Turkish Grand Prix

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.
