Post 2006 F1 Calender

2006 is going to be a very different season with all the rule changes, and now dramatic changes in the Calender. All because of the FIFA WC in Germany there are changes in the order of races.
Race Schedule:
1)Mar 12: Bahrain Grand Prix (Bahrain)
2)Mar 19: Malaysian Grand Prix (Malaysia)
3)Apr 2: Australian Grand Prix (Melbourne)
4)Apr 23: San Marino Grand Prix (Imola)
5)May 7: European Grand Prix (Nurburgring, Germany)
6)May 14: Spanish Grand Prix (Barcelona)
7)May 28: Monaco Grand Prix (Monte Carlo)
8)Jun 11: British Grand Prix (Silverstone)
9)Jun 25: Canadian Grand Prix (Montreal)
10)Jul 2: United States Grand Prix (Indianapolis)
11)Jul 16: French Grand Prix (Mangy-Cours)
12)Jul 30: German Grand Prix (Hockenheim)
13)Aug 6: Hungarian Grand Prix (Hungaroring)
14)Aug 27: Turkish Grand Prix (Istanbul)
15)Sep 10: Italian Grand Prix (Monza)
16)Sep 17: Belgian Grand Prix (Spa-Francorchamps)
17)Oct 1: Japanese Grand Prix (Suzuka)
18) Oct 8: Chinese Grand Prix (Shanghai)
19)Oct 22: Brazilian Grand Prix (Interlagos)

There you go..all of them there...but in a different order...no inaugural Australian GP.

It doesn't really matter for us which order the races are in. I would have thought that it'd be more logical to have the Brazillian GP in the same period as the two North America races.

North american races are held back to back for which most of the teams stay in North america itself
so pulling it to 3 weeks back to back races would have been crazy

But on the other hand, it'd be easier on the logistics and expenditure side.

Australian GP is pushed back as Melbourne will be hosting the Commonwealth Games.

I think they should have lined up the races such that the teams get to race in both wet as well as dry conditions...that would be awesome!!
Even though the weather is unpredictable in all places it would be great if the races were placed in order like they were in 2000 season(I think), it had a mix of all climatic conditions.

Although wet races provide good entertainment, i would prefer if we had a minimum of those. Rather than seeing spectacular crashes, i prefer to see spectacular racing. Besides, it'd be crap to see a chamipnship being determined by who won the rain lottery in qualifying.

The Canadian Grand Prix for 2006 has been postponed by 2 weeks because the organisers don't want to have the race at the same time as the world cup soccer games in Germany. Apparently even the usual race start time of 1 pm is probably going to change.
