Formula one, 2001 season United States Grand Prix at Indianapolis: Circuit news: the jpoc report

Ferrari team chief Luca di Montezemelo called for Italy to retain it's quota of two Grands Prix in the future. The San Marino race was in the firing line as one of the first candidates for the chop if Grands Prix would be held in new countries such as Russia, Lebanon or China.

Of course, as the head of an Italian team, he would be expected to say that but would it do any good? One factor that would come into play would be the fact that Montezemelo was the leading voice in the movement fo quit F1 and form a new world championship for car manufacturer based teams. Of course, in that case, the car manufacturers would be most interested in races in countries in which they sold cars.
