F1's teams association FOTA has reportedly expressed doubts about the addition of South Korea to the 2010 calendar, and would prefer instead to be returning to the United States.

"South Korea is a wonderful country and we have no problems with it, but we hear that the track is four or five hours from the nearest major city," McLaren team boss Martin Whitmarsh is quoted as saying by Germany's Auto Bild.

"There's no infrastructure, no hotels, no good transport. It makes it difficult for the fans and the media," said the Briton.

He indicated that F1's priority should be immediately reinstating an American round of the world championship.

"There shouldn't be any doubts about Montreal. North America is a big market. In the past we've messed around with North America so much that we should go there for free if necessary," said Whitmarsh.
