New Indianapolis Motor Speedway owner Roger Penske has revealed that Formula One could return to the Speedway’s Grand Prix circuit in the future.

The news comes as it now appears extremely unlikely that the proposed Grand Prix in Miami will happen due to objections from local residents. Roger Penske has said that his team are exploring all options for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway which hosted the United States Grand Prix from the year 2000 to 2007.

The 2005 Grand Prix was controversial due to the fact that only six cars competed in the race after the Michelin teams pulled out of the race due to safety concerns. Formula One’s foray into the Indianapolis Motor Speedway ended in 2007 with Lewis Hamilton winning the race for McLaren.

Formula One returned to America in 2012 with the Circuit of The Americas in Austin Texas playing host to the US Grand Prix.
