So F1 is going back to America - again! In fact F1 has been in and out of the States more times than a very rude analogy!
This time its Austin in Texas that will be the host as F1 attempts to rise from the ashes once more - returning to the state which hosted the disastrous Dallas GP 25 years ago, although I'm expecting a much more professional effort this time around.
F1 needs the US, one race is not sufficient for the purposes of most sponsors and in my view there should be negotiations to ensure that Indianapolis and at least one other US race are returned to the calendar too. Apart from anything else F1 fans in North America get to see two races a season despite being spread much further apart than continental Europe which gets much greater exposure.
