It's a big shift away from Asia in the last ten years.

In 2013 six races (Japan, Singapore, China, Malaysia, India, South Korea)
2022 just two (Japan and Singapore).

(I'm excluding Baku which kind of straddles Europe and Asia)

And I suspect Vietnam (Hanoi) which was due to host in 2020 is kaput (the main local proponent is facing corruption charges).

China will probably come back in 2023, but the lack of a 2022 race is probably good for Piastri compared to Zhou in the choice for the last Alfa seat.

And finally appears that Malaysia's Petronas will be dropping sponsorship of the Mercedes team, being replaced by a Saudi oil company.

Edit.. last rumour has now been denied

Definitely disappointing re Vietnam. Would've been an ideal destination race for Aussie fans, and the track layout looked excellent.

What's most disappointing about the reduction in Asian races is the time zone issues - they were certainly convenient!

Ol'Bernie killed off Korea far too quickly (by not being prepared to renegotiate to retain), and likewise Sepang. Can't blame the Koreans and Malaysian governments for saying 'thanks, but no thanks" given the losses associated with F1. Am surprised Melbourne continues really - I guess they put it down as marketing costs.

There is talk about Dan leaving McLaren at the end of 22 if the results aren't there.
That would pretty much be the cut-throat nature of F1.

Let’s hope Piastri can get a seat soon. But still gotta back Dan to come good - it’s still in there, he just needs to find it consistently.
