India did have 1.2 Billion people on 1st March 2011 & well we have reached the 7 Billion Milestone this week haven't we.
The USA & India are both looking at 2nd tracks, we have to remember in the USA is 2.5 times bigger than Europe
with similar population levels. India & Europe are a similar size, India having 3 times as many people.
So just having a race each is like having just 1 race in Europe (we'd go nuts).........so even 2 races a year in each of these countries you'd think they would be able to fill the track with spectators.
But just taking that as a simple approach........looking at the top 10 populated countries let's just do a check:
1 China, People's Republic 1.4 Billion - Dull 'Check'
2 India 1.2 Billion - Unknown 'Check'
3 United States 312,488,000 Are they still building 'Check'
4 Indonesia 237,556,363 - Nothing yet for Jakarta - Miss
5 Brazil 190,732,694 - Mighty fine 'Check'
6 Pakistan 177,608,000 - Errmmm No
7 Nigeria 158,423,000 - Not a GP in Africa let alone a country
8 Bangladesh 151,493,000 - Would have to avoid the Monsoon & flooding period
9 Russia 142,914,136 - Aren't we getting one soon 'Check'
10 Japan 127,720,000 - Okay but slighty dull 'Check'
So goes to show that High Population > Money ≠ Great GP - So concludes our Maths lesson for today, sorry but I'd rather have a race round the Vatican City than another track round India, it's a 50:50 chance of it being a decent track irrespective of where it is.............
