Chris Pook was a spectator at last weekend's Houston Grand Prix. The renowned Long Beach promoter has been working all year with San Francisco's mayor Willie Brown to bring a World Championship F1 race to a park in the California city. Brown is considered to be the most powerful politician in California and is fully supportive of Pook's efforts.

"Bernard (Ecclestone) and I have been talking about this for some time and we hope to get his approval for an F1 race in San Francisco very soon," Pook said. "I think it's the ideal place and location to run the United States GP, much better than somewhere in the Midwest. If Bernard and the FIA want to see Formula One grow in the United States, I think they'll find we have the perfect situation for them in California."
