NO GO FOR 2013: This is how the New Jersey track was supposed to look, but apparently thing's aren't moving fast enough for Bernie.

LONDON, England - The inaugural American F1 GP scheduled for  New Jersey in 2013 has been postponed for a year, according to Formula 1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone.

The postponement is due to rising doubts about progress being made in preparation for the event.
