Love him or loathe him, Hermann Tilke's impact on Formula One cannot be denied. With the exception of Bernie Ecclestone, no man has influenced the sport more in the past decade.
Tracks which he designed, modified or otherwise had a hand in will hold 12 of the 22 races provisionally scheduled for the 2014 season. It's likely to drop to nine of 19—still a substantial number.
So why stop there? If the long-term goal (and one has to wonder) is a calendar filled with Tilkedromes, we should let Hermann loose on the old classic circuits, too.
Just think what he could do to Interlagos. And Monza really, really needs a new hairpin. Right?
These are my visions of what might happen if he's ever asked to design those and other classic circuits.
Purists and those of a nervous disposition should avoid clicking "next."
