Will the US embrace F1?
With American team Haas set to join the 2016 F1 grid, I wonder how the team would gain interest with the American public, given that NASCAR and Indycar are the main motorsport categories in the country.
It leaves the team in a hole without much home support. Although I think the US Grand Prix is a success, only a small percentage of the people who watched the 2015 event on television were American. So next season I will be interested, from a fan’s point of view, to see how Haas do in terms of the support they will get at home. But as the Eagle F1 team didn’t exactly have the best time of it, based on F1 history, Haas will be up against it.
