Bernie Ecclestone has apparently considered asking Red Bull to help cover the costs of putting on an F1 race in New York.

So the promoter can't get it built in time and hasn't got enough money to pay the race fees and start up costs.

What an excellent business plan! Now they have to put the begging bowl out to the state (ha ha) and to wealthy businessmen like errr.. Bernie!

Having Bernie as a 'friend' of the race means as much as having Bernie as a friend on Faecesbook.

It might have been simpler to ask Red Bull if they would like to sponsor a race in Austria or even France. Both at least have the tracks and the track owners in both cases would benefit.

i think that red bull may prefer to keep a lower profile in usa at present. there have been 5 deaths attributed to energy drinks, in particular Monster. and legal action is being taken against monster

An American successfully sued a manufacturer because it didn't say in his rv owners handbook that he couldn't leave the wheel while driving and nip back to make a cup of coffee....he did and he crashed and he successfully sued despite it been a common case of no common sense......if you drink 20 tins of a caffine riddled energy drink...probably mixed with Vodka then don't be surprised if your heart explodes.

taz. unfortunately one of the deaths (at least) was after drinking two cans in 24 hours. no alcohol etc. apparently it puts an undue strain on the heart. monster contains the equivalent caffeine as 20 cups of coffee! not sure about red bull though.
