    Ok, name probable African countries, now guys, only African countries. And I’m being serious here because Morocco actually was a venue long time back. Don’t remember the year, I’m sure Keith, andae23 and Google will tell you, in that order of precision, but here’s the map.

    @Kingshark – you are too much !! :)
    There are plenty of places that should have a GP, but with a shi*t track, or are a shi*t place to have a GP, but with a good (or great track)

    Turkey- Not a bad track at all, but NOBODY went! Probably a great spot to see drivers!
    Barhain- It was a great GP to watch really. Some say they wont watch, and thats fine, but I watch all GP , no matter where- may not agree with all things- but I watch!
    China- Apparently 3 hours from anywhere- why would any F1 fan go!?! (any thoughts from F1F that have been appreciated)
    Korea- again…………. where??
    USA- they have guns, dont go there!
    Australia- treat aboriginals bad- dont go!

    I am Aussie and points were made tounge in cheek!!- I will be very interested to see how things change when BE passes the baton!!

    @garns Yeah it really was a shame about Turkey. A brilliant track but hardly anyone turned up for the races. Two things you need for a good GP event, a great track and passionate fans who turn up in numbers. But I suppose with the economic crisis, more and more people are discouraged from going due to the cost, and Turkey isn’t in the best condition economically so I wouldnt blame them for not turning up.

    Somalia?
    The thing is, if these countries we’ve been ridiculing want to spend the money and invest in the facilities to put on a show, why shouldn’t they be considered. Obviously there’s safety to consider, and the usual political and human rights issues will crop up (and China would be included in this surely!). Money will dictate, and there are a lot of countries with the financial clout to make it happen.

    @Ash Shame on you for picking on all the Islamic countries.
    Its funny how everyone is mentioning Islamic countries as ridicilous places. Show’s the mentality of all you people.

    Israel would be a ridicilous place because of it oppressive regime against Palestine.

    Trying to pick a fight much?

    It’s not about religion, those just aren’t good enough places to hold GPs …arguably.

    Oh, yeah, its totally to do with them being Islamic countries, nothing to do with half of them currently being active warzones.

    Do try not to talk nonsense.

    Funny how someone points outs a true fact and all of you arrogant folk seem to turn unto him. Hate all you want.
