Japanese GP moving to Fuji?

Crash.net seem to think that Fuji will get the Japanese GP from 2007 onwards (as do Wikipedia). This seems to be another classic circuit dissapearing from the calendar – Spa has gone, Hockenheim was butchered and now Suzuka (demanding, technical fantastic track) could be replaced by Fuji Speedway – a track which has had a Herman Tilke redesign. Both are in Gran Turismo, and I know which one I prefer :-) . Fuji just seems to be 2 miles of tarmac runoff and no character, so pretty normal for Tilke. The way this is going, F1 will require a boring Tilke circuit for every race. At least Monaco might escape – but thats been made “safer” already anyway.
