I quite like the red stripes. Might look really nice from the onboards

What's amazing is that the four race run of Korea, India, Abu Dhabi and USA takes place on four circuits that didn't even exist in 2008!

BBC:
The inaugural Grand Prix of America in New Jersey will be postponed a year until 2014 because organisers will not be ready


EDIT
The inaugural Grand Prix of America could be postponed to 2014 as F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone says organisers have "run out of time".

The race was pencilled in for 16 June next year but there have been doubts whether it would take place.

It is not yet known whether another race would be added to replace the Grand Prix of America next season.

Ecclestone said: "They've run out of time. They've had a wake-up call but it came too late."

Last month Ecclestone said the organisers had not complied with the terms and conditions of the contract.

On Friday he did not give more specific reasons, but added: "There's all sorts of things...and they didn't quite think it all through."

The waterfront race, with the New York skyline as a backdrop, had been pencilled in on the 2013 calendar with an asterisk against it.

It was one of two US races on the next season's list, joining the United States Grand Prix, which returns this November at a new track in Austin, Texas.

Not a surprise, but a shame. :(

Thanks for the pics! I don't know why I'm so excited about F1 coming back to the US, but I definitely am. Just a shame that New Jersey won't be around for next year. Anyway, right now I'm just hoping that the Austin track will produce great racing, bring it on.

I wonder what or if there has been any progress with this event for 2014? There has been almost no news since the event was cancelled for 2013.

@Phil - if it does happen in 2014, let's make sure we meet up.
