ESPN has just posted a new article about the F1 Drivers' thoughts on the new Grand Prix as well as the concerns regarding the need for an American F1 Driver.  This has been an obstacle in the past and we agree that an American F1 driver would perpetuate passion for Formula 1 racing in America.  Since BMW closed the US side of it's Formula BMW junior racing league, young drivers have had a tough time moving up from Karting to Formula 3000, F1's baby brother.  Scott Speed was the last American driver in F1 up until 2007 and there's been a need for a new American driver ever since.
