Webber: Austin GP will be a good addition

Formula 1 veteran Mark Webber says that F1 wants to race at America. United States launching two new grand prix circuit over the next duo of seasons. In 2012, a purpose-built track will become home to the United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas before a New Jersey street circuit houses the Grand Prix of America some nine months later.

“I think Austin will be a good addition,” Red Bull’s Webber, third in the last two World Championship, told the Associated Press. “The track looks sensational, they have done a good job with the layout – a lot of undulation and sweeping, quick corners which is always challenging for us.

“It’s not a market that has been completely cracked but I think they will be enthusiastic and they keen to have us there. Formula 1 needs to work a bit on softening and working a bit harder on education with a new audience. Obviously Indianapolis didn’t work out with the 2005 affair…it has been challenging there. We are in for a good period in north America, with two races. I think this is the best chance Formula 1 has ever had of doing a good job over there.”
