I see that Valencia is now trying to renegotiate its deal with F1. That's usually the death knell for a venue.

I don't like the reason (terrible economy in Spain) but I'll be glad if the venue is dropped.

I always thought it was boring. The TV people talked it up. But the truth is finally being reported:

Valencia has not proved popular with fans. The layout makes racing (overtaking) impossible, while the bland featureless backdrop has singularly failed to capture the imagination.

It has been said that man is a rational animal. All my life I have been searching for evidence which could support this.
