And it would still lose money. In 90s Robert Lappalainen (the organizer of Helsinki Thunder DTM race, which pulled 100.000+ spectators) talked about Finnish GP. He claimed it was possible to convince Bernie, but after few calculations it became very clear nobody wanted to fund his plan. Finnish companies expected proper return on investment. Significant govt handouts would have been the only way. They said thanks but no thanks, so that was it. Nowadays the situation is even worse. The costs have increased. With car manufacturers around, bigger countries like China are in better position. The remaining GPs go to countries that are desperately in need of positive PR. What we need is bad national image and dictator. No more dumb politicians claiming the money should be spent on stuff like schools and hospitals.
