A Formula 1 race amid the Manhattan skyline is definitely on for 2014, claims the event’s promoter, Leo Hindery.

The Wall Street Journal said Hindery’s positive outlook was his first public comments in months, after the 2013 New Jersey street race had to be cancelled.

Hindery added that all the agreements with Formula 1 chief executive Bernie Ecclestone are now in place, not just for June 2014 but “for the next 15 years”.

He said his organisation has been “spending like a sailor on leave” to make it happen. (GMM)

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!|
