I think the choice was brilliant because Austin is a very international city. They have a rich musical history known worldwide, a great international film festival, and they embrace new ideas. It is the Silicon Valley of the Southwest, and F1 is at the top of racing's high-tech movement. Everything they do in this series is high-tech and cutting edge.
