Despite confirmation that the Grand Prix of America, aka the New Jersey Grand Prix, has been postponed until 2014, a new report suggests F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone is open to the race being saved for 2013.
Indeed, Bernie himself has suggested that Charem Yoovidhya, the Thai national who owns 51% of Red Bull, could step in and pick up the hefty tab required to get the race back on track.
“I might get the Red Bull man behind the New York Race,” said Ecclestone. “It’s a good market for them.”
Hmm, we’re not sure if Bernie was taking the piss, or is deadly serious. One thing we do know is that Bernie loves the cash. So if Yoovidhya and Red Bull were keen to invest in the New Jersey race then he’d be willing to reconsider the race’s place on the 2013 F1 calendar.
