Watkins Glen in upstate NY was a solid fixture for 20 years from 1961-1981, F1 is the pinnacle of motor sports, and needs to be in USA, in my opinion. Not to mention my Kimi marking would be in full show !yahoo:

I have attended 2 Indianapolis GP's and can attest that they were very well attended, well run and a complete blast. I really hope they bring it back and can get over their financial squabbles soon.

I agree with you.
And maybe Indianapolis wasn´t the right place for F1.
They should try Long Beach or Laguna Seca in my oppinion.

Well as Indianapolis is one of the most famous and historic tracks in the world,Indy should be the venue for future F1,with hopefully a re-modelled track as the current one is too mickey mouse.But I can't see American drivers coming to F1. Drivers coming from America to Europe have a mixed history so F1 bosses are wary of hiring them,while American drivers can enjoy fame,wealth and success at home without going to F1,which is what is needed for F1 to take off in America.

Plus they (American drivers) have trouble with the thinner/hi-tech cars. JV was nothing in them, neither was Zanardi, Andretti couldn't stand the technology and refused to base himself in Europe. Speed was a GP2 frontrunner with no place in f1..
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

Speed will probably be the only person in the world to succeed in GP2 and be a total (maybe not total, may be 90%) wreck in F1...
