In the wake of the latest Red Bull demonstration, Hong Kong could be looking to host a round of the world championship.
Over 40,000 fans lined the streets of Hong Kong at the weekend to watch Jaime Alguersuari put the Red Bull car through its paces.
Watching the event was the city's motorsport president, Wesley Wan, who believes Hong Kong would make a good addition to the calendar.
"This was the first step in gaining the support of the people," he told the South China Morning Post. "We wanted to raise the exposure of Formula One by staging the live show, and I hope it will lead to Hong Kong hosting a grand prix race one day.
"My dream is that Hong Kong, like Singapore, Malaysia and China, will be a stop on the grand prix circuit," he added.
The exciting city effectively ticks all the boxes as far as Bernie Ecclestone is concerned, though some argue that there are already enough street circuits on the calendar. "If Monte Carlo and Singapore can have it, why can't Hong Kong?" said Wan.
