Doubtful Interlagos had the money Imola did to upgrade their facilities ... and where is Imola now?

Brazil is broke, poverty rules ... but at least there will be new garages .... though dudes with guns skulking in the rough sort of trump any excitement of new facilities ..... just ask Jenson.

What a ridiculous statement, 130R... Since when is Brazil broke? Don't mix the concept of country and population, they're not the same. Yes, Brazil's population is mostly poor (at least by our developed country standards) however, the country's economy is (and has been for a while now) amongst the top6 in the World.

Also, Jenson might have had a close call with a thief but not too long ago Kawasaki had drugs (almost 200Kgs of it too) and guns found in their trucks in Europe... nowhere is 100% safe. And if they can have races in Russia, India and etc I can't see why Brazil wouldn't be an option.

Having said that, Rio de Janeiro would have been great... I wouldn't mind watching a race there!!
