It's just so utterly unimportant that I can't comprehend the mindset where you have an online slapfight about it.
I personally agree with the guy who thinks there should be a flag, but if I was in his shoes I'd just roll my eyes at the first revert and go do something actually interesting.

This but there shouldn't be one

None of you are considering that one of those people arguing might be Bernie Ecclestone who knows for a fact where the German GP is being held but can't cite it for legal reasons.

It's weird...had he made the move in 1993 (like what Emmo was pushing him to do?) The 1993 Indy 500 would have had Mario, Senna, Piquet, Mansell and Emmo all on the grid.

TEN World Driving Championsips between those 5.

But how do we know Germany won't reannex Poland? We should remove the polish flag from any article showing an event taking place in Poland until we know Germany won't annex them.

In the wiki spergs defense, they're wiki spergs and that's the wiki rule. If the race isn't confirmed at a venue, no flag for the location of the venue.

I wonder if we could remove Korea if we got some citations saying they hadn't done poo poo to get the race back and it's just a ploy to allow 5 engines in the season.

ed: Just checked, Korea is TBA too but now they both have flags. Oh god.

I don't think Button would beat Alonso over the course of the season, but I expect he'd do better than most expect. Better than Kimi or Massa ever did against him anyway. Especially if the car was nicely balanced. If it was a bit unruly I'd expect Alonso to be measurably better.

I would like to add that there can't be a Korean flag on the wiki because we don't even know which Korea the race will take place in. South Korea or Best Korea.

The title?

Yep. Especially if it's a two year deal. Holy hell, him with the Pushrod engine? Penske would have curbstomped the field even more than they already did.

At Indy? Not as sure. It took Emmo about 5 years to drink the milk, and Mansell got owned badly by Arie and the aforementioned Emmo in his rookie season.

e: I wonder how he would have qualified considering how freakish he was at doing that at places like Monaco:

Apparently Kobayashi is going to test a Super Formula (aka The Series Formerly Known As Formula Nippon) for Toyota. Man, this guy walked away from Ferrari's factory GT program to join with Caterham and now he's going to a series where the reigning champion is Kazuki loving Nakajima.

I actually follow the series and yeah, it's definitely a step backwards. It's also kinda why I didn't understand the Lotterer hype; he was bested by Nakajima, who was a mediocre(at best) F1 driver.
