F1 | USA Finds A “fixed home” for GP


Mario Andretti believes F1 has found a “fixed home” for the United States GP.

Over the years Formula One has struggled to find a permanent home in America with the last US GP held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway from 2000 to 2007. The race, though, was dropped when the Indy organisers failed to reach a new agreement with F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone.

Five years later Formula One is back in America, this time at the newly-constructed Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

And one man who is proud of the new track is Andretti, the 1978 F1 World Champion.

“When I saw the place in June I had my doubts about this ever going ahead,” the 72-year-old told The Observer.

“But I’ve been amazed at the work that has taken place since. There were big difficulties, because the whole project fell into different hands. But there was a passion and a resolve to perform miracles and make it work.

“And now this can be the fixed home of the US Grand Prix. And I think that fact will see the event not only surviving but thriving in the future.

“It’s a great host city and I think the track, borrowing a bit from Silverstone here, a little of Hockenheim there, will go down great with the drivers.”

As for plans to Formula One to race through the streets of New Jersey, a deal that has been postponed by at least a year from 2013 to 2014, Andretti said: “Can you imagine New York as the backdrop?

“It could be fantastic. But right now Austin is all we’re thinking about.”

Trading Tears at London 2012 [Olympics]

The clocks have gone back , winter is upon us but don’t forget what an incredible summers its been. 

London 2012 finally got its long awaited games under way. The Games received widespread acclaim for their organisation, with the volunteers, the British military, and public enthusiasm praised particularly highly. The opening ceremony, directed by Danny Boyle, received widespread acclaim. During the Games, Michael Phelps became the most decorated Olympic athlete of all time, winning his 22nd medal.Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Brunei entered female athletes for the first time, so that every currently eligible country has sent a female competitor to at least one Olympic Games. Women’s boxing was included for the first time; thus, the Games became the first at which every sport had female competitors. 

The games at times brought many of us to tears and we take a look back at some of the magic moments form London with a picture review of ” trading tears”.

Emanuel Steward – Recovering From Surgery

“At this point, I’m asking EVERYBODY to LEAVE US ALONE so that we can comfort and communicate with Emanuel,” Steward’s sister Diane Steward-Jones emailed to the Free Press on Thursday.

Steward nurtured and guided the likes of Thomas Hearns, Hilmer Kenty and Milton McCrory to world titles in the 1980s at the Kronk Gym on McGraw in Detroit.

He has been hospitalized since September and underwent surgery for what his sister called diverticulitis, a stomach disorder.

Some reports had suggested that Steward had passed away.
