I'm in the States and the handful of people I know who are into F1 are white males. Of which I am one.
I have never met a Black F1 fan, or any other ethnicity to be honest.
Give a shout to let us know where you stand.
More than likely if I had the opportunity to go to the Indy F1 race, my question would be answered.
Just would be interested to know.
What's the diversity in this forum?

F1 fans on BB = racing nerds, male or female from all over globe
F1 fans who watch 2 races a year and cheer for Hamilton, Alonso or Vettel = casual sports fans who flicked channels when cricket was delayed or their football team went 2 goals down etc...

There are more viewers from Europe than I expected. Still a fairly decent chunk of non anglo viewers just from Italy + Brazil + China.
Formula One was watched by a total of 600 million viewers in 2008, a gain of nearly three million over the 597 million that tuned in during an equally dramatic 2007 campaign.
Italy, no doubt buoyed by Massa's attempts to land Ferrari a second successive crown, remained the leading European television market, with 37.5 million viewers in total throughout the season. Hamilton's championship-winning effort with McLaren, meanwhile, season helped UK commercial broadcaster ITV gain a seven per cent increase in total viewers, to 29.1 million, in what would be the company's final season before handing coverage back to the BBC.
In Germany, where Formula One audiences have been in decline since the retirement of Michael Schumacher in 2006, the total audience slipped behind that of France, who had only rookie Sebastien Bourdais and the Renault team to cheer, into third place in Europe with 29.6 million.
Outside the sport's heartland, China moved ahead of Massa's Brazil to become the territory with the biggest total audience - a reported 119 million compared to Brazil's 110 million.
eliteboy2780 apparently has it try PMing him for it.
