Please pick the region of your nationality, or if you have multiple nationalities, the one you feel describes you best. Also there are questions about your age and gender.

I would like to apologize for any choices in the poll that are politically incorrect or wrong in your opinion, I tried to make them as neutral as possible whilst also giving an extensive amount of choices to try to evaluate this forum's users origins to some detail. This was meant to be nationalities only but then I figured what the hell, may as well measure age and gender too.

The reason I'm opening this up is because I've noticed recently there are now a few users around from Asian countries, notably from nations where there are F1 races there, whereas this didn't use to be the case in the past. This is why I'm repeating a thread that has been done many times before - has there been an evolution? I am curious to know the numbers, how significant is this fanbase these days, at least here in the forums. Inevitably the numbers will however be used in the future to "prove" how the forum is "biased" towards driver X or Y though... yeah I know this place.

Whatever the results please be aware that this measures the demographics of this forum only, not the global F1 fanbase. For example I expect there to be a wildly overblown sample of UK/Ireland users - this is a English-talking board for a English-based magazine.

Myself, I have a very easy choice being Portuguese and having lived in Portugal all my life. Although geographically my island is part of North Africa so I may technically be one of the very very few users from that region! Also in my twenties and male.

I get the impression most people here are in their 20's so it'll be interesting to see the poll.

Had a difficult call whether to include myself in Central or Eastern Europe but in the end Poland is closer to Germany than Russia (well, at least on the map). So yeah, I'm from Poland, 20-something, male (despite what my nickname may suggest).

Geographically Novosibirsk is located in Asia, but i voted for Eastern Europe, as i feel Russia is closer to European country than to Asian.

Not really that way.

I was curious if living in Poland should I chose Central Europe or Eastern Europe.

According to wiki, Poland is in Central Europe. click

But it is not the same part of Europe with Belgium or Netherlands, which aren't classified neither to Central Europe nor Northern Europe.

I think this poll is a bit flawed unless you have more trustworthy source of knowledge than wiki.

Back on topic:
I'm 20 years old male from Poland.
