Haas backs US

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

For­mula 1 team owner Gene Haas be­lieves that the Cir­cuit of the Amer­i­cas in Austin can over­come its fi­nan­cial dif­fi­cul­ties and con­tinue to host the US Grand Prix. The track is cur­rently strug­gling af­ter the state of Texas re­duced its sub­sidy for the GP from $25 mil­lion (£17.5 mil­lion) to $19.5m (£13.65 mil­lion). The track also lost money when it had to can­cel the Satur­day of last year’s GP meet­ing due to ad­verse weather. Haas said: “There are con­cerns but it’s a beau­ti­ful track and they have in­vested a lot of money so I don’t think they’ll scrap it. No mat­ter what hap­pens, the track will sur­vive. I can­not imag­ine it not be­ing used.”
