Montreal This Weekend and Austin News

I’m off to Montreal tomorrow for what should be an exciting Formula One race. There are two DRS zones, Ferrari seems to be on the mend, and McLaren is starting to challenge the Red Bulls up front. This track is one that relies heavily on straight line speed, which the Ferraris have in spades, while the Red Bull is historically better on tracks that feature medium to high levels of downforce. And in case no one has been watching the weather, there is the possibility of some rain as well! All of this should make for an interesting race.

In other news, it seems that the US GP is still not secured yet. Apparently, the Austin City Council still needs to actually approve the money ($25 million a year) for the track to be completed, and they have the final say over whether the track is actually finished or not. Here is the article, but the most troublesome quote is at the end, where the lawyer for the US GP says that the race not being held is “a distinct possibility.”
