I quite like the track apart from that really narrow section by the castle.

I hate driving it and I still think it's a dubious track, but I can't deny that it tends to produce its own brand of unique racing. I think it's earned its place on the calendar as a race.

As a showcase for its corrupt government, eh - it's hardly the only one. :?

I can see that from a driver's perspective vs a spectator's perspective. Reminds me a little of the Indian GP if you flip that scenario. The drivers loved the track but it looked rather processional for a spectator.
Where I'm going, I don't need roads

I wanted to hate it so much, but it's thrown up some cracking drama in its short history.
