i think itll still fail

American doesnt need F1 when they have fine race series like nascar and indycar which are arguably better to watch and more entertaining

and like someone said ticket price will be key and you know because bernies involved prices will be sky high

its a long uphill battle that one

"Must do it right" and then they announce Tilke to design circut!!!.

Comedy gold from the FIA. What else can be organised under this "do it right" mantra?? How about serving only vegan food at the track and just before the start they could thank the Brits for winning World War 2! If someone else could abuse Bruce Springsteen and proclaim that Nascar is just for Rednecks F1 will be onto a real winner!

or perhaps just a tyre related strike! That ought to do it!

The FIA IS COMEDY CENTRAL...these guys couldn't organize a chook raffle properly...you only have to look at how they set up the new teams entering this year. Virtually no time to setup and then when they signed on, it was going to be under a new concorde agreement, which obviously fell through leaving them completely disadvantaged going into the future...absolute joke.

So I should imagine this will be no different, and the other thing is Americans like to see racing...not processions so they better get there act together in this area and not rely on the weather.

I don't understand why so much noice about the american GP look what they dit with there USF1 the first team to start bud never arrived so most probably those promoters that still have no track will be like them lots of noice looking for money to try the all american dream to be rich and famous. Let's stay racing in europe and some asian races and forget all that is comming from the usa.

@Danny - you mean it is kind of like the Donnington fiasco? The US is not the only one to fail. The Europeans have plenty of experience with failure. Just wait until the euro callapses.
