Canada axed from '09 schedule

The Canadian Grand Prix has been left off the revised 2009 schedule, leaving the series with 18 races next season.

The development means the World Championship will completely bypass North America next season.

No reason was given for the decision.

This year's race was marred with problems with the tarmac. The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve has also come under criticism for its age and lack of facilities, still, it was a popular venue for sponsors and teams alike.

With Canada joining the USGP on the sidelines, it appears Formula One has decided there is no market for its product in the United States and Canada.

That would seem to be a misguided opinion, to say the least.
