Liberty Media are American and that's the target audience they want to grow. It'll probably be races, Miami, Vegas and Austin.

Money, that's how. America has 300 million people, that's a lot of advertising.

As for the UK, "deserve" doesn't come into it and the fact that the teams are based here is, frankly, irrelevant.

Good - I think he deserves it. He is quick, just inconsistent. It's easier to add consistency than add speed.

Size and money.

If you're in Scotland and want to get to Silverstone, it's a 6 hour drive or an hour on a plane. But if you're in Seattle and want to go to Austin it's 30 hours driving or 5 hours on a plane. (According to Google)

America is a massive place, more people to support multiple races.

I wouldn't want more GPs here, it would mean more circuits being ruined.

I google it and the first twitter post from Max read...

"We had an amazing start and I was able to quickly get in my rhythm"

Christian Horner has declared that there was an impact of 51G during the, erm, "manoeuvre" and that he's not once heard Lewis Hamilton compliment Max's technique or talent in the bedroom.

Meanwhile Marko's already signed Jr up to a long-term Red Bull deal and will be whingeing shortly about how it's unfair that the FIA won't give a foetus a super license.
