it is hard to believe that any country would be offering to hold a gp, when other countries, much richer, are falling like ninepins.
i wonder what my wife would say, if i told her i was going to thailand (for a gp of course)?

NO we dont want another race in south asia. It's too crowded over there already there. Doesnt make sense. Give it to russia or bring kyalami back. We need an african race.

nah..wouldnt happen..1st F1 is hughly expensive sport to maintain and you got no ammenties near the track area like 6 star hotel or f1 rocks or clubbing or entertainment....NO ONE would want to spend their hard-earn money on travellig that far! and waste their time and effort to watch 2 hours race and leave....

take singapore gp for a choice....they are the best!!.hotels nearby..clubbing like 20mins walk!..and it get better every year!..this year will be better than last year!..ann its the only night races that all drivers looking forward to every year and their girlfriends and wives!

By the time other countries like HK or malaysia may or maynot come up F1....i dont think they will be or can be or match like singapore atmoshere...by the time they are up..singapore gp will be the best of the best and will always come up no.1!..and will be on people's mind when it comes to watching night race..just think? would you travel 4-5hours and fight with traffic and watch races for 2 hours and after that no entertainment and clubbing and head back to hotel?..places like malaysia are expericing that now..and they losing money every year!..even people from russia or usa flew 16 hours to wacth f1 in singapore and its report in the news that they LOVE IT!..and momey well spent!..

Come on people, who wouldn't want to go to the Bangkok Grand Prix? lmao.

Seriously though, there's too many races in Asia already and it's a crying shame that less than half the season is in Europe these days. I'd rather see countries like Mexico & Argentina get their GP's back before a new Asian track. That would really make it a world championship.
