The American monopoly men running F1 have today made what they’ve called a “cautious decision”, given the history.
Despite announcing the race over a year ago, the whole COVID thing provided a convenient excuse for the American-owned series to avoid Vietnam again this year, much to the relief of the yanks running the show.
And now it seems the race has been cancelled for next year too. The Waterton Chronicle spoke to head Monopoly Man, Chase Carey, for a bit of an explanation.
“Well, yes. We were a bit worried about going back there to be honest.” Chase explained.
“It seemed like a good idea at the time, but then we remembered how much they f**ked us up the last time we turned up there unannounced. And it kinda scared us a bit.”
“So we decided it was probably better if we just went with our old mates in Saudi Arabia.” Chase added.
This reporter understands it also helped a bit that the Saudi’s happen to have a giant pile of cash just sitting around for these exact scenarios.
“Yeah, basically, we took the money Vietnam had already paid us, gave it to the Saudi Princes, and now they’re convinced they’ll be able to fund their own night race and buy a few new gold-plated Bentley’s and Ferrari’s and maybe a new fish tank with the leftovers.”
“It really is a win-win for us” said the Texan.
