Why in recent years have so many things to do with F1 and the US run into problems?

There were doubts about this years Austin race taking place, the USF1 team that didn't make it to the grid, and now this delay for another circuit.

How have they managed to even get 2 GP's with these problems they have and with many less fans that in Europe or Australia for example.

Bernie goes to so much trouble because it's a MASSIVELY under-represented market, and the largest economy on the planet. Granted, a lot of Americans like the NASCRAP... but there are millions upon millions of Americans that enjoy formula one, and would gladly spend their hard-earned cash supporting a race here.

It's a pity Barber in Alabama wasn't built to F1 spec. It is beautiful, like a small Spa, easy access, and the museum is incredible.
I've done some hot laps on it myself and what a track,
but it's just to short and narrow. On top of our misery, NASCAR's France has bought Petite Le Mans, and is combining it with his DPS debacle. We just can't get a break.

We cant produce a driver because unfortunately NASCAR is the preferred destination of most young drivers. If Formula 1 was ever to really gain a foothold in this country, then you would see multiple US drivers on the grid. Its the same argument with futbol. We have too many other professional ball sports that hoard the athletes produced here.

The race in NYC will have to wait until the economy makes
a solid upward turn. Maybe next year, or sometime in the future
'Not now'. Money and jobs take center stage here..F1 money
junkies, not now, when the DOW is solid, with luck, you will get your payday.

Mr. fill..NASCAR is the game in racing here. 'Home boy'
motor racing enjoyed by millions. ( ask Mario) Close
exciting racing, Hommie style. I like it..Here F1 has little
to no standing..

Shannon..once we get that NYC racing thing on the 'GO'
please stay 2 hrs away

Old Dog, Jose
