F1 CEO, Stefano Domenicali continues to make waves ahead of the new season, and now has suggested that a second American Grand Prix race is in the pipeline.
Among the possibilities being considered is the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which Formula One raced at between 2000 and 2007.
While Miami remains a contender, plans were put on hold due to the ongoing global pandemic, and reports now suggest there is mutual interest with IMS officials and F1.
Speaking in an interview with Autoweek, Domenicali said:
“America is a work in progress.
“I really hope that we can give you a straight answer very, very soon. But, no question, that is a focus. The objective will be to increase to two American races. That is really the target.
“I cannot say today whether Vegas is better or worse to be honest. We are working very hard on that. Indianapolis is in the equation.
“That is why it is good we have a lot of elements, but it would be wrong and premature to say anything because otherwise, we create expectations that we don’t want to create.
“What I can say is that the focus is definitely there. The big thing we need to change in the US is to feed info every day—more at all levels—with the involvement of the drivers, the teams and the organisers.
“This is something that we want to do very strongly this year.”
