I'm from malaysia.Don't say f1 shouldn't come to Thai.I know it's not where i came from.But this involved SE Asia.Asean people already go to europe for watch the f1 series.Why European people Can't do the same?Should SE Asia just only watch f1 in tv?Do the same for asean people like we did it to you.

If it had been a night race through the streets of London... rather then Bangkok, I wonder what the general reaction would've been.
I remember Bernie hinted about a night race in London six months ago, and everyone was so excited. Contrast to this.

@ hoorah
I Think you need to read carefully what I mean... I never criticise having the race in Thailand and I never said anything about how F1 decides where it races.

Look at F1 through rose tinted glasses but the future of F1 needs to include asia as much as europe otherwise F1 is no longer sustainable. F1 in Thailand will be a MASSIVE success story, cannot wait.

BTW each asian country is quite different. the people don't all look the same and incredibly they speak different languages and stuff.. just so u know.

Cyde, Nobody's saying don't have Asian races what I'm saying is if other countries want to be involved in F1 then build a decent circuit. Using F1 to show the World how pretty your city is has nothing to do with motor racing and everything to do with advertising.

Look at the USA, too many dull, pointless, half-ar$$ed, crappy street circuits over the years, as a result F1 in the US was a joke, then someone had the bright idea to build a great purpose built F1 track in Austin and everyone loves it.

My dad plays poker with Bernie fairly regularly.

I have it on good authority that the race won't happen.

Also, he's considering a request by Knockhill to have the GP there so there's potentially a Scottish GP in 2013. Fife LEC have are committed to funding circuit upgrades to the tune of 12 million.

The real radio hairpin will be renamed the Santander hairpin. The pitstop diner will be upgraded to produce edible food.

You heard it here 1st.
