In my opinion, in comparison to other circuit revisions, this new layout is an actual improvement, at least. The one that still irks me the most is Hockenheim; they ruined one of the iconic circuits in the world, and turned it into a kart track.
The new layout may be more fun for spectators but is less fun to drive.

But I agree with you on the Hockenheim redesign being a tragedy. It was the equivalent of knifing a supermodels face, and then burning her on top of that just to destroy any remaining vestige of beauty. A desecration of a work of art.

The new hockenheim ring is so bad, they should move the German grand prix back to Nurburgring.
