America's future in F1 is not endangered by the problems facing the current US grand prix in Austin. That is the view of Gene Haas, the founder and owner of the sport's new Ferrari-linked American team for 2016.

The US grand prix in Austin is in doubt for the future over a funding dispute with the Texas government. But Haas said that while Austin is "perfect" for F1 at the moment, "There are plenty of racing venues available".

"If COTA unfortunately wouldn't be able to make it, I think that another one would pop up. We want to have a US race," he added, "and I think Bernie (Ecclestone) understands how important a US race is." (GMM)
