F1 CEO Stefano Domenicali Hints At 4th Grand Prix in USA

The Formula 1 world is abuzz with anticipation as CEO Stefano Domenicali hints at the possibility of adding a fourth American Grand Prix to the F1 calendar. Although Domenicali maintains that three US races are sufficient for now, he doesn’t deny the potential for further expansion to cater to the growing American audience.

The US Gears Up for a Triple Treat of F1 Races

This year, the F1 schedule features three exciting races in the United States. With the exhilarating Las Vegas Grand Prix in November, the much-awaited Miami Grand Prix just a few weeks away, and the well-established Austin-based United States Grand Prix in October, US fans are in for one hell of a treat. The addition of Las Vegas and Miami within the last two seasons has successfully fueled the excitement of the US racing community.

F1’s Soaring Popularity Stateside

Over the past few years, the popularity of F1 in the US has skyrocketed, thanks in part to Netflix’s series “Drive to Survive.” This surge in American interest has undoubtedly caught the attention of F1 bosses who are eager to capitalise on the momentum and expand their fan base.

In a recent interview with Sky Sports, Domenicali discussed the future of the F1 calendar.

“There is a lot of interest in far East Asia, more interest in the US. But in this moment, we have three [US races], which I think is the right number for the next couple of years. The most important thing is that every Grand Prix has to be different in terms of personality – we want to have the city living the event; that’s the magic of Formula 1.”

The Long Road to F1 Domination in the USA

For years, F1’s presence in America played second fiddle to other racing series like NASCAR. However, the recent success of F1 races across the nation has rekindled the passion of American racing enthusiasts. As the US continues to embrace the thrilling world of Formula 1, the possibility of a fourth Grand Prix on American soil is enticing, to say the least.

Alex started racing at a young age so certainly knows his way around a car and a track. He can just about put a sentence together too, which helps. He has a great interest in the latest models, but would throw all of his money at a rusty old French classic and a 300ZX. Contact: [email protected]
