Fine but you still need a FIA Grade 1 track to host a F1 race, you can't do it at Watkins Glen or Mid-Ohio (unless you want to tear the track apart for safety and facilities sake then watch a procession).
And despite the fancy backdrop, would Miller be anywhere near a financially viable location for a worldwide massive event?
Yep most US tracks have got pretty awesome layouts but Miller.. ugh now that is mickey mouse.
You seriously can't possibly prefer a F1 race at Miller over this??
Don't get me wrong, I don't really fancy Miller either (some of the more useless races I've seen have been held here) but yes, I would find it a more suitable place. Sue me for having an opinion!
As for the points made out of F1 not being able to run on any of those awesome sub-Grade 1 North Americam circuits I mentioned - well I'm GLAD (and if you read my posts carefully you notice that I never suggested that F1 should run on those circuits, I merely mentioned them to prove that American circuits do feel American). The reason why I'm glad is that these classic circuits like RA and Glen are completely saved from the sanitation & sterilization most European/Asian tracks have gone through.
Why do I complain about Austin then? Well It's just frustrating for me as many of my favourite sports and touring car series are heading there for next year and I have to sit through all of those races, watching this emotionless, sterile concrete jungle again and again...
