Austin seeks new date for Grand Prix

The organisers of the United States Grand Prix want the date of the 2013 race to be rescheduled after it coincides with an American football match.

The race is expected to take place on November 17 after the race calendar was released on Wednesday by the FIA. However this date coincides with the University of Texas playing Oklahoma State, with the match expected to attract thousands of spectators.

Organisers had expressed a desire for another date but no alternative plans have been made and the current race date may still stand.

The United States Grand Prix made its debut on the F1 calendar last season.
