Indy MotoGP race not an F1 substitute

Indianapolis Motor Speedway president Joie Chitwood expounded on recent comments by Tony George which hinted at an F1 return to the Brickyard.

At a press conference this week, Chitwood said IMS road course alterations, made in preparation for this year’s inaugural MotoGP event, have also been approved for F1 use.

Chitwood also explained the June date the USGP has held in recent years was left open on the race track’s calendar for a possible F1 return.

George told an Indianapolis radio station earlier this month the speedway was actively engaged in finding a title sponsor for a USGP event, and the race could return as soon as 2009 if proper conditions could be met.

Gascoyne happy Force India finished ahead of Hamilton

Very little comment has been made about Lewis Hamilton’s petulant gesture toward Giancarlo Fisichella in last weekend’s Bahrain GP.

It didn’t escape Force India chief Mike Gascoyne, however, who called the gesture “completely unnecessary.”

Hamilton shook his fist after taking several laps to get past the Italian. Hamilton made a dreadful start which found him fighting for 13th. Seems the young starlet didn’t like that Fisi didn’t move aside for him, despite the fact the Force India veteran was fighting for position.

Hardly seems fair. It wasn't Fisi who ran into the back of Fernando Alonso.

Good drivers win from the front, great drivers work their way through the field to maximize their results on a bad day. Hamilton didn't do that in Bahrain. Instead, young Lewis showed his inexperience. Don't miss the top stories of the day, subscribe to the SpeedRead Web newspaper now! -- Email SpeedRead -- Learn more about author C.D. Six
