Oh, God...

Post by crl on Fri Oct 05, 2012 5:30 am

Tweets from Will Buxton:
Oh dear. All appears not to be well at COTA. Garages haven't been built to spec and are far too small. Teams meeting Charlie to discuss.

Health and safety won't allow them to work in the garages. Bernie won't allow them to work under tarpaulin. One royal screw up brewing.

HOW?! HOW?! Fail Fail Fail Fail Fail Fail Fail Fail Fail

In the state where "everything's bigger", they make garage stalls that are TOO SMALL?!

>CIRCUIT OF THE AMERICAS

Welp that race is off the calender, WAY to late to screw up.

Only way i see it being salvaged is if teams complain about points implications.

And yet, Charlie approved the circuit layout, but he doesn't address the garage problem up front? We have to hear about it from Buxton?

Track gets approved by FIA, then they bring up this issue. What the hell is this nonsense????

EDIT: Wow. I can't believed I missed that. I feel stupid for overreacting like that. Fail

America and F1...an always flawed marriage.

Hopefully they get their act together and they can still hold the race next year.

remember that this track is being built for more than F1.

I wouldnt be surprised if this track is on the nascar schedule in the near future.

>F1 in charge of making sure race tracks are built properly
I don't see why they cant build new garages in about a month in a half though.

What? No, seriously, what!? Bernie's the boss of F1, yes; but how does that make him responsible in any way for the construction of the COTA?

Guys, you all over reacted. The whole Garage deal was Will Buxton being a drama-starting bitch. I seriously hate that bastard now.

Update from Buxton:

Just had a catch up with Charlie. Clarified COTA garage issue. Team complaints were over unequal allocation. Situation now resolved.

Top teams won't have quite as much space as they'd like, but they'll just have to suck it up. As Charlie says, "It's a beautiful facility"
