Indianapolis, Las Vegas remain options for Formula 1

Stefano Domenicali has confirmed the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is still an option for Formula 1 to have a second Grand Prix in the United States.

The sport has had long-time efforts to establish a second Grand Prix in the US. Formula 1 is still working on a proposal to race in Miami but its debut has been put back due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“America is a work in progress,” said Domenicali to Autoweek.

“I really hope that we can give you a straight answer very, very soon. But, no question, that is a focus. The objective will be to increase to two American races. That is really the target.

“I cannot say today whether Las Vegas is better or worse, to be honest. We are working very hard on that. Indianapolis is in the equation.

“That is why it is good we have a lot of elements, but it would be wrong and premature to say anything because otherwise, we create expectations we don’t want to create.”

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway was bought by Roger Penske in 2020, and he has previously shown his interest in a Formula 1 race.

“There continues to be mutual interest in an F1 race at IMS,” said an IMS spokesperson.

“We’re open to further dialogue and time will tell if there’s an opportunity that works for everyone.”
