Are American F1 fans that different from everywhere else? If this had happened in, say, Germany, would the reception be that different? Would Chinese fans be any more likely to come next year, after paying so much money to attend a race expecting to see 20 cars starting and only see 6? If I were a fan in England, would I not be asking for my money back after the race was, in essence, not run? I haven't seen a reaction yet that is uniquely "American".
