We will see, i hope personally that Monza not is going to be postponed, because i'am going to that GP, and it is my only week off.
On the second hand i think that the USA GP will be postponed or even be cancelled because a there are a lot off people on the race track from serveral country's. But we will see.

Greats,

Newey

I think that Monza may well go ahead, but I can't see them running the US GP.

On the contrary, the feeling that I am getting watching the TV is that the US will carry on as normal and will not have it's day to day operations disrupted by terrorism. I have to say I support this viewpoint. It's the best way get over this. What good will it do if everything that is connected to the US is cancelled? I can't help but think that other counrties cancelling their events and other things connected with the US will be counter productive. The best that can happen is that the professionals are left to get on with their jobs, and everyone else carries on and shows that terrorism will not destroy a nation.

Postpone Races?

I think it sends entirely the wrong message to the perpetrators of these despicable attacks, if we cancel international sporting events held over two weeks later, or even four or five days later for that matter. The security risk of attending either event has not increased one iota as a result of the NY and DC attacks. There is clearly some risk of terrorist attack at either Monza or IMS, but I cannot concieve of any group doing what they have done and then following it up with an attack on a motor race.

I agree with Massifheed and Maxmil. It's important that we get back to normal as quickly as possible. Formula 1 is not a target of bin Laden; he has bigger fish to fry. The US airports will presumably reopen soon, and F1 should bring the show to Indy. Americans can use the distraction.

Cart are going ahead with the German 500, and as they are a USA based Championship, I cannot see the FIA going against CART's policy.

We all should try to do our best to keep on going in spite of what happened. What they want is to disturb and we cannot give them that victory so easily.

The guys who fought in the plane that crashed in Pittsburgh are heroes. We should honor them by fighting in the same way.

Lets go for it America. We can do it.

We do not know that Bin Laden is responsible for these attacks..Yet!

But I can tell you from watching TV here is the states, the hammer is going down, the FBI are really moving on this..Soon they will have results..

I hope and prey that both races go ahead, as they are two of the best in the F1 season.
I see no reason whatsoever to cancel or delay that Italian GP, however the same can't be said for the US GP.
I will just echo what others have said, you can't let the terrorists see that the country is damaged, you must carry on as normal.

PS I hear that all UEFA footie matches this week are cancelled - which I think is a bit of an over-reaction, a dignified 1 minutes silence would have sufficed, I feel.

BBking : The guys who fought in the plane that crashed in Pittsburgh are heroes? - I never heard about this, - can someone explain?

PPS Which circuit would they move the US GP to? It takes months to prepare for a GP (supposedly) Though how long would it take to put up grandstands etc - a day or so?
