So you'll make an exception for Melbourne, I'm guessing one for Canada too? The vaunted Spa was all public roads at one point as well. If you want purpose built have a look at Abu Dhabi. It might be a street circuit, but the streets were reconstructed as a temporary F1 track, same as Melbourne and Canada.
Personally I don't give a rat's ass if the races are on streets, a dedicated track, Mars, the surface of the sun, your mom's backyard... don't care. Valencia this year showed us how good that track can be. Abu Dhabi will probably do the same. Singapore I'm not certain about, honestly, but who knows? Rather than sit around and moan I'll just watch the races and have some damn fun. Which is what racing is about.
