Will the US em­brace F1?

F1 Racing (UK) - - INBOX - Lewis Knox By email

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.
