London: The Korean Grand Prix, a race in the F1 calendar which lacks sizeable amount of crowd support, has a threat to it with the increased number of proposed races on next year`s calendar, in a similar situation to that of the Indian Grand Prix.

According to the Guardian, the circuit remains listed as a provisional date on an already packed 2014 calendar which currently includes 22 races and has yet to negotiate a return next year with Bernie Ecclestone.

Ironically, the track is popular with many drivers because of its grippy surface and the lack of sponsor-based work they have to do here, with the sunshine and pleasing scenery adding to the mix, the report said.

However, the lack of fan support is an issue and the swathes of empty grandstands that could happily seat thousands are noticeable, the report added.
