That sucks eh, it seems like ever since the race in NJ was announced Austin has been out of favor with Bernie.
Personally I am upset but Austin is a PITA to get to and I have no friends to crash with. NY will be much easier for me.
Ill be at the next F1 race in the US, now where that will be I don't know.
I had planned on going & I have friends in Austin.
But I'm not complaining.If the race comes to NJ ,I could just drive over.
I have always avoided that area I don't even know if it is dangerous.
I wonder what's more dangerous, driving to Interlagos or driving to NJ?
I have definitely had my "almost pissed in my pants" moments on occasional visits to Newark.But not all of NJ is bad.
F1 most likey not going to austin... Nj grand prix cant wait!!
If you have everything under control you're going too slow.

Looks like Austin is going to happen.At least on paper it is.It has been added to the 2012 calendar.
COTA says a deal has been struck.

It should be interesting to see how Raikkonen fairs. It's a very competitive field and his car is mid-pack material. It seems as though Schumacher has struggled greatly since coming out of retirement so I wouldn't be surprised for Kimi to take a little while adapting again. Granted Schumacher is much older than Raikkonen but I suspect the break from f1 has taken its toll.
Once the Weasel comes out of hibernation he should start the 2012 thread.
Kubica bad news continues.He recently slipped & fell ,& opened up one of the fractures on his leg.
