SEPTEMBER 13, 2001
The United States GP is on
THE Formula 1 team managers (excepting Eddie Jordan who is rumored to be stuck in New York) gathered at Monza at lunchtime on Thursday to discuss the matters of the moment and it was agreed that the United States Grand Prix at Indianapolis will go ahead in two weeks time unless the United States government decides to stop the event.
Before the meeting F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone spoke with Indianapolis's Tony George and it was agreed that they would try to make the race happen although there are likely to be some logistical problems as F1 requires eight Jumbo jets full of equipment and around 2000 people to get there.
Tomorrow at Monza the Formula 1 circus will have a minute's silence at midday during which all work will stop and the team personnel will stand in the ptilane. The morning practice has been moved from 11.00 to 10.50 to accommodate the change. The afternoon session will start as usual as 13.00.
