Bernie wants a second GP in the US, and if New Jersey doesn't happen in 2014, he'll find somewhere else. I live in Austin, and the F1 buzz has been building for months. Everyone here knows what F1 is now, and I believe that can spread throughout the US. Anyone who has been to the Canadian GP will agree that it is more of an International event than just Canadian. The Canadian GP doesn't rely on people in Vancouver or Toronto, just as the US GP won't be 100% dependent on the rest of the US. Granted, the actual race itself is the primary reason for attending a GP, but the entire GP weekend is what makes or breaks the experience. Austin is known for it's festivals such as SXSW and ACL which draw huge International crowds. Austin has an unique atmosphere that will easily bring people back.
