    Well, I think the tire rules has to change, especially after Kimi´s crash and the last problems at Indy.

    Give me Spa-Francorchamps anytime. Going up Eau-Rouge... amazing. Glad they brought the Belgian Grand Prix back to the Schedule.

    I would like F1 to race in Road America. IMHO, it is one of the best circuits in the world.

    And by the way Michelin screwed up

    Ouch!! That was harsh! It must be terribly boring to be worse than test match cricket.

    1.5 miles is definitely way too short, as the average track is usually roughly 3 miles long, with the notable exception of Monaco. And even when building an infield track, it would be hard to get the track even as long as Monaco.

    Well, Indy would have been boring as well, so they added the Infield with curves just for F1. I'm not familiar with the LVMS, but judging from what I have seen from the air (3-4 years ago), it didn't look too big anyway, let alone allow for an infield track.
    But of course, we're talking Vegas here. If there are indeed plans for a F1 race there, they shouldn't have any problem bulding a new track somewhere on the outskirts. Just look at how fast Qatar built its racetrack.
    The track is a 1.5 mile D-shaped oval, which is a "cookie cutter" track, providing for a boring NASCAR race when they run there (which is where I got that a race on the current configuration would be boring). There's no infield road course right now, although they probably could squeeze one in there.

    I have no clue, I hope a street circuit though.

    Two of my flight instructors went to the USGP...the one that's a race fan was frustrated & says he's been gipped of his $75. What happened Sunday definitely didn't help F1 in the US, which is unfortunate because it's a great racing series.

    I think it may have something to do with when & where the races are on in the US. Some F1 races are shown tape delayed on CBS on Sundays around 1pm Eastern. However, most are on Speed Channel & are shown live using their announcers (Bob Varsha, David Hobbs & Steve Matchett), requiring a 6-7am EDT start time many times. I think some of the Middle Eastern races (Bahrain comes to mind) come on at 2 or 3am EDT. I know I don't get up for them, although I'm starting to become interested again because Schumi hasn't won every race so far.

    In comparison, NASCAR's probably much better known here & it's easy to find the races. On Sundays in the first half of the season, go to FOX or FX at around 1:30-2pm & the second half, NBC or TNT at the same times (except for Saturday night races) & you'll find a NASCAR race.

    As for the Indy 500 (Indy Racing League), The two words that explain the new interest in that series?: Danica Patrick.

    ABC/ESPN's coverage of the races almost makes the IRL unbearable to watch because they focus so much attention to her...the Indy 500's pre-race show was dominated by a piece about Danica, which was her doing Yoga-like moves with a voiceover of her explaining what she thinks about racing.

    There's a guy who takes notes on the IRL race coverage...why, I don't know, but you'll see the DP hype in the Indy 500 one:
