    Looks like good news, I hope it happens. I hate that they aren't coming this year. I was really hoping to see Piquet Jr race. I was a big fan of his dad and I feel privilidged to have seen his dad at Indianapolis for the 500. The article touched on a sponsor negotiations and need to have a deal by august, so it sounds good to me. I wonder why Ford never got involved in it, seemed like SAP didn't do much, but I'm not a business guru.? The article's last line asks: Do you think an F1 race can make a successful comeback at the Speedway? I say yes if they don't blow it like they did in 05, hopefully an American like Marco or Graham or both get good oportunities to race in F1, probably not as soon as next year, but would create a buzz down the road. Last years turnout wasn't huge, but seemed that everyone I talked to that spoke english enjoyed having it here and dreaded the idea of it leaving. One thing that is curious to me is would they run the new circuit clockwise or counter clockwise? So yes is my answer it would be a successful comeback for me

        Leaved the politics for those paid to do it!

          Looks like Colorado will be represented as I'm sure MichaelP would be back too.

            There's quite a few of us here on TF from the Denver area. And you bet I'll be back!

              And another good thing if it ever comes back Michael. Our new airport opens this November.

                    Well at least they are talking and if the title sponsor can pony up $20 - $25 million, then I think a deal can be had with Uncle Bernie for $30 - $40 million, as that seems to be his current going rate for anyone wishing to host an F1 event...Hey, maybe we can have Ralfie Boy pony up the sponsor money for 2009 since he so badly wanted to stay in F1

                      If he ponies up the sponsorship can he ride shotgun in the safety car?

                        Better make sure that safety car is rev limited and has super soft sticky tires properly inflated!!

                          Don't get that logic. I'd rather see more cars than less. That's why the merger was a good thing. More = better. The 6 car race was one of the biggest jokes in motorsports history. Even the F1 people say that.

                              Probably not until a suitable replacement is found. Even then, I don't think he will be forgotten too soon.
