Milton Keynes, England:

Mark Webber is looking forward to racing in Texas next year, saying the $300 million Formula One track looks "sensational" and could help the sport crack the United States.

The inaugural race in Austin will be staged on Nov. 18, 2012, after organizers ended a contract dispute with F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone last week to sign a 10-year deal.

Webber, of reigning constructors' champion Red Bull, says "they have done a good job with the layout, a lot of undulation and sweeping, quick corners which is always challenging for us."

With a race also slated for New Jersey in 2013, Webber says F1 needs to work "a bit harder on education with a new audience ... this is the best chance Formula One has ever had of doing a good job over there."
