By now Y'all have read the news that this coming weekend's USGP in Austin at Circuit Of The Americas will feature only 18-cars, the lowest number on the grid since 2005, with the struggling Caterham and Marussia F1 Teams forgoing both Austin and Sao Paolo's events due to their continuing financial crisis's...
And I say Uncle Bernaughty, aka Mr. Bernard Ecclestone pisses upon the US market again, because while he blusters away 'bout racing on The Strip in "Sin City," (Las Vegas) along with growing the sport in general, i.e.; adding a second race Stateside... When given the golden opportunity to enable Marussia to race American F1 hopeful Alexander Rossi make his Formula 1 debut at his home race no less; Chirp-Chirp!
Thus, expect only 18-cars taking the green flag Sunday, when F1 goes "Head-to-Head" with some 'lil 'RASSCAR "Chase" race up the interstate at Texas Motor Speedway.
Also note that the race will be aired on the "BIG" Network TV channel NBC along with if I've read the news correctly, on the day following when Y'all set your clocks back 1hr Saturday night at 2AM. So definitely check your timepieces 'N local listings, and GO NICO! (Rosberg)
