I really still wonder about India and F1.

With the FIA's stance on Green ecological racing, and they go to one of the worst air polution countries in the world. Amazing.

And then their backward attitde to bringing in the Circus, and exchanging of money. smacks of a real Third World Country, where only the minority Elite are interested in the sport.

Lets get back to reality with Formula One, a real sport......

How daft.
That was the most racist comment I have ever read on this site and I'm not even Indian. So Brazil hasn't hosted a successful GP even though it is an LEDC is it? And what about China? An LEDC like India, and just as polluting if not more so. Honestly, I wonder if you're blind, because there were quite a few people at the track this time, so take your "minority elite" away from here.

@Sprutz - does racist have a different definition where you are from? I found the comment somewhat elitist but I don't see how it was racist. That term is so overused these days that it is losing it's meaning.

richard: ty. I guess that your comment was tongue in cheek, or were you too being elitist?
equality in monaco? well, I suppose that they are all equally rich..........!


Not tongue in cheek, There is relative social equality in that they're all rich and there is relatively low pollution as there isn't any heavy industry and I'd imagine a few hundred Lambo's, Ferrari's and Bentley's will pollute far less than 90 million Tuk Tuk's!
