Townsend Bell visits Formula 1
Sometime CART racer Townsend Bell was a visitor in the Budapest paddock, the San Francisco driver saying that he would like to have a career in Formula 1 in the future. The 27-year-old has driven this year for the Patrick Racing CART team but recently was dropped by the team because he was having too many incidents. Bell says that his aggressive driving style, which has got him into trouble in CART, is a sign that he is willing to race with the Europeans and hopes to be able to get a ride in Formula 3000 or even a Formula 1 test drive.
With America looking for a Formula 1 driver to help build up the sport in the United States, Bell would be a good option... The problem is getting a drive to prove his speed to the F1 team bosses.
