There has been an interesting sighting in the Shanghai paddock this weekend.

Tony George was CEO of the former US grand prix venue Indianapolis Motor Speedway until he resigned last year.

He is credited with bringing F1 back to America in 200 on a novel road course inside the fabled Indy 500 oval, and until he stepped down was keen to pen a new race promotion deal with Bernie Ecclestone.
