Qatar angling for Formula 1

Qatar is hoping to get a formula 1 championship, with the Qatar Motor and Motorcycling Federation planning a massive upgrade for the Losail international racing circuit.

The federation were recently dissapointed when the GP Grand Masters, dominated by Nigel Mansell, went bankrupt recently and Losail lost the annual race.

However, Qatar may have missed its opportunity, at least for the time being. Neighbour Bahrain already hosts the championship, while Abu Dhabi will be making its own F1 debut next season.
