The US Grand Prix is scheduled for October 24 this year. But it could be exciting if this continues. This time not because of the coronavirus, but because of the particularly bad condition of the asphalt in Texas.
The circuit is not safe enough
This weekend, MotoGP was a guest at the Circuit of the Americas and drivers have been complaining about the condition of the asphalt since arriving at the track. Fabio Quartararo called it a “joke”, while Alex Espargaro believes it is unsafe to race on the track on Sunday.
Even Francesco Bagnaia, who is fighting with Quartararo for the title, dares say it was a worse situation than it was in Britain in 2018. That year the race was canceled entirely because it wasn’t safe enough to race on the tarmac. But Bagnaia does not want to think about cancellation: “No, I don’t think it’s possible. We’re here, we have to race”, this looks like Motorsport.com.
MotoGP riders in consultation with the Safety Committee
According to the Italian, you can no longer drive at the limit on the Circuit of the Americas, because you exceed it on every lap. Drivers are now consulting with the safety committee to find a solution.
At the end of the month, Formula 1 will also land at the Circuit of the Americas. It remains unclear whether poor asphalt for the track will have consequences for this race.
