I mean, Dubai makes sense. Bahre´n is borderline. Abu Dhabi, even though is a big city, I don't see why.
There's probably a clause for the GP to be dropped one year.
A lot of GPs come and go, some of the least attractive (money-wise and other aspects) venues now are doing the musical chair. The Montreal GP might be back for 2010 or 2011. I've been expecting this for 2-3 years now, it isn't surprising. They'll renovate, and get it back until Bernie goes crazy again and wants to put a GP in some place that'll make him more money. Luckily for Bernie and the stockholders (and many other loathful people on this planet), greed doesn't kill (at least, not the person being greedy).
