Indonesian here. There was an Indonesian circuit built in the ’90s that tried to host F1 (with a layout more boring than most, if not all, Tilkedromes). The standards were either raised above the one the circuit complies with or the plan was stopped by the late ’90s crisis we had, or the circuit didn’t meet the original plan, or the original plan turned out to never have complied with F1 standards to begin with(I don’t know since I wasn’t born then).
I guess that’s why you sound quite neutral then, @keithcollantine. I’m in a similar position myself, being near Liverpool, where North/South accents collide. It’s funny when people in the same family even have different accents.
A shame to see the loss of Polish readers after the injuries Kubica sustained, and a big shame for F1 to lose him too.
