Great quote from that article. "“They have paid us the money. I’m confident we will keep the money if the race doesn’t happen. It’s an incentive, isn’t it?”

We are all screwed.

Yup.

He'll probably decide that even though the Texas track is better. It'd be easier to get more hi profile people to attend the one in new jersey because of the proximity to new York and pull the Texas race to focus on that one.

A good Texan would shoot JR Ecclestone for that deal. He is just blowing smoke, he loves to be in the spotlight acting like an arse.

We can only hope right

This is all par for the course (no pun intended) for that twat. I still wouldn't put any money on either race to be honest.

Seriously, I would assume it's full speed ahead since the shakedown earlier this month. No news in the daily rag.

I think some folks believe you have some big inside scoop besides the newspaper.
