AUSTIN: United States Grand Prix officials have welcome Bernie Ecclestone’s decision to move the inaugural Austin race to November next year. As revealed by AUTOSPORT, Ecclestone circulated a new version of the 2012 calendar during the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend. The teams, however, expressed concern about the move, with seven races at the end of the season in just 10 weekends and back-to-back events in Japan, Korea, Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, the United States and Brazil. “I have been hoping for a late-season date since this project began,” said US Grand Prix chairman Tavo Hellmund. “We see this as a very positive sign from Formula One that it wants its US event to be an over-the-top success.”
