Formula 1 already has an unprecedented three U.S. races — but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t add a fourth.

F1 CEO Stefano Domenecali hinted that he was open to exploring additional cities in the U.S. in an interview with Sky Sports. The series is already racing in Austin, Miami, and Las Vegas this year.

“There is a lot of interest in far East Asia, more interest in the U.S.,” he said, adding that “we have three [in the U.S.], which I think is the right number for the next couple of years.”

Speculation has gravitated toward New York City.

“It would be amazing,” said Red Bull principal Christian Horner earlier this year. “A race here in the Big Apple, for example — what a spectacle that would be.”

F1 director of media rights Ian Holmes agreed, telling Front Office Sports last year, “Who wouldn’t want to race in New York?” 

But the F1 calendar may be reaching capacity with 23 races this year — after the Chinese Grand Prix was canceled — and there’s interest in bringing a race to South Africa.

Honda Turning to Aston Martin?

Reports surfaced this week that Honda could pair up with Aston Martin heading into 2026. 

The Japanese carmaker currently supplies engines to Red Bull and AlphaTauri, but those teams will work with Ford and Red Bull Powertrains heading into 2026, when engine regulations are overhauled.

An exclusive deal with Aston Martin could have domino effects on Mercedes, which currently supplies the British team’s engines. Mercedes principal Toto Wolff is also an investor in Aston Martin.
