Roger Penske, the owner of the track feels the strong need to revive the Formula-1 World. His efforts coincide with the plans of Liberty Media, the owner of Formula-1, who beside Austin plans to organize races in other American locations as well.
Back in March, Penske mentioned that his son was negotiating with Liberty, however currently the decision lies with Chase Carey:
‘I have known Penske for quite a while now, we go back a longer way, than many imagine. Yes, they have contacted us, however the content of our discussions is still confidential and I do not wish to make any statements.’ – stated Carey, who added that Penske was really open to an Indianapolis race.
In the meantime, the famous German magazines Auto Motor and Sport stated that he still would be busy on the road, more precisely because of the Coronavirus pandemic. A we all know, in the United States of America, especially in Texas, the situation is not the brightest, therefore Indianapolis might return in 2020 as the perfect alternative solution. However, currently the chances are pretty low, because if needed, the F1 would rather focus on the European tracks, e.g. on Mugello or Hockenheim.
We still believe that it is never too late and that the time of Indianapolis is near!
