Alonso happy with rumours: 'Let's see one step at a time'

Formula 1 adds a Grand Prix in Miami to the race calendar for next season. For Fernando Alonso it is not yet enough, because the Spaniard is not unwilling to see a third race in the United States.

Alonso thinks it is a logical decision if the FIA is going to investigate whether there can be another race in the United States. "I guess so, I don’t see a problem with that," he told Motorsport.com. "The US is probably the biggest target for F1 right now with Liberty in charge of the sport."

The experienced driver is curious to know which destination the FIA will choose. "There are rumours it could happen in different places, Las Vegas or Indianapolis or whatever, so let’s see one step at a time. But let’s make a good grand prix in Miami next year first."

United States Grand Prix in 2019

This weekend, the United States Grand Prix is scheduled to take place. Whereas the 2020 GP could not take place due to the corona crisis, Valtteri Bottas emerged victorious a year earlier. At the time, Lewis Hamilton took second place, while Max Verstappen came in third on the podium.
