@Richard Population of Europe 750 million Population of US 350 million So if you are basing it on population, the US should have about half the number of races as Europe. That's ridiculous of course as there aren't suitable tracks and of course no real interest. I still say population density plays a big part, there just aren't that many fans in "close proximity" to Austin for example, and given the state of the US economy many are being very careful with their disposable income. I know that many Americans will travel long distances to see a NASCAR race but that's because there are a lot of very dedicated NASCAR fans. I think we are arguing the same thing here though, it's not that the US can't support F1 it's more that the US won't support F1. I'd be happy to be proven wrong on this though.
