FIA is not really known for overly bright decisions...
Austin not really being a good venue...but with a new track Bernie may be able to build in a few shortcuts.

As much as I would love to see a real GP back in the USA, and I was one of the biggest supporters of the race at Indy, I feel Bernie is trying to do the same thing as happened with Donnington. He tried to use it as leverage against Silverstone, and it back fired and people got burned. Hope the fire is not in Austin, this time. Bernie doesn't get hurt in these things !!!!!

Hey Barry, don't forget the cadillac with the horns on the front, Bernie could become the real life Boss Hogg,and Briatore could be his chauffer Ennis the dipstick...

Why Austin is not a good venue? Dedicated Tilke track instead of improvised one is no good? For me, Indy is close to 900 mi ride, Austin would be less than 500 miles.

Indy's problem is simple. Tony George. It took them too long to purge themselves of that self serving swine who destroys everything he touches. It will take years for Indy to heal if they and auto racing can keep him away, never if they can't.
