A six car race at the U.S. Grand Prix does not win fans over, especially when spectators were fleeing for the exits after 10 laps and demanding their money back. The 14 teams that were on Michelin tires boycotted the race after the tire manufacturer informed the teams that the tires were not safe in the final banked corner of IMS. Teams asked the FIA to either change tires or to place a chicane in the final turn. When the requests were refused, 14 teams parked their cars leaving only 6 drivers riding on Bridgestone tires. At least Schumey got the win, but the amount of damage that F1 has done to the sport in the U.S. (and all around the word) is going to be hard to repair.
