Romain Grosjean welcomes F1's new American owners, saying that the 'American way' can be good for the sport.

Romain Grosjean has welcomed Formula 1's new American owners, saying that the 'American way' can be good for the sport.

It has been announced that US media tycoon John Malone's Liberty Media, and new executive chairman Chase Carey, are taking over from CVC as the sport's majority owners.

Frenchman Grosjean is now well versed in the 'American way' of going racing in F1, having switched from Lotus to be the lead driver of the new American team Haas in 2016.

"America knows how to put on a show if you take a look at the Super Bowl or Nascar," he is quoted as saying by Straits Times.

"It's such a big country and a big market. In the Austin grand prix last year, people were enthusiastic and they loved the sport.

"It'd even be nice to have a second grand prix there. I'd love to have a race on the west coast, maybe somewhere around Los Angeles. If we get more races in the US, they'll probably love F1 more."

The 2016 season continues on Sunday in Singapore.
