Formula 1 director hopes for American racing drivers

Formula 1 is working with the teams to get American racing drivers back into the world championship. That has Formula 1 director Stefano Domenicali said. “We’re working with the teams to see if it is possible for American drivers to get the attention of Formula 1 teams in the short term,” said Domenicali.

Formula 1, owned by Liberty Media, sees the United States as an important growth market. Next year there will be a second race in Miami, along with the existing Grand Prix in Austin, Texas. “I know there are teams looking at the good drivers who, if they are ready, would be a big boost to the American fans. People want to see these guys. who compete against everyone else in the Formula 1 Championship. “

Domenicali is also realistic. “I don’t see it happening very quickly in the next two or three years either, but maybe after that.” Alexander Rossi was the last American in 2015. He competed in five races for the now-defunct Marussia team.
