This article almost makes it seem like it was a verbal or handshake agreement that F1 would come to Austin.

Someone doesnt want to front the money without a contract. Makes sense no?


"Organisers of Circuit of the Americas, a premier motor sports racing and entertainment venue being developed in Austin, Texas, are suspending further construction of the project until a contract assuring the Formula 1 United States Grand Prix will be held at Circuit of the Americas in 2012 is complete," the statement read.

"The race contract between Formula One and Circuit of the Americas has not been conveyed to Circuit of the Americas per a previously agreed upon timetable.

Interesting, I thought it was on the calendar for Nov just before or after the Brazil GP
