At the the Indy Harvest GP from the Indy road course they announced it during the the second race.
I was thrilled for Shank Racing. He started out as a speck of an operation and has really grown
his operation into something very special.

After Honda's F1 pullout news, there must have been concern for Indy teams, but I think Honda just extended.

If we ever get past the pandemic, and keep our fingers crossed, I hope Roger Penske makes a new deal with F1.
Inside the Indy circuit appears to be a logical location. But who knows how much of the old F1 circuit and pits can still be used?
They just need to bring tyres that can handle the banking.

I remember watching the sad spectacle of 2005, when only the 6 Bridgestone shod cars competed, and the 14 Michelin tired cars pulled back into the pits before the formation lap was completed. ..
The one compromise that hadn't been suggested at the time, could Bridgestone have brought in additional tires for the 14 Micheline shod cars, so a proper race could be held?

That was a horrible weekend.
I was there and took my brother in law in a giant motor home.
There was little comfort that refunds were issued.
We were both extremely upset with F1 and the whole stink surrounding it after the weekend.

The embarrassing event cost Formula 1 a good number of American fan's. Not to forget a royally peed off Hulman family, the then owners of the track.

Full article

Wow, I didn't know this about Covid & Germany
Excerpt:
If that sounds harsh, consider this: these were the people who sent F1 to the Eifel region in October, on the basis that the Nürburgring offered more spectators than Hockenheim was able to do. Nürburgring said they could get 20,000, but they had to refund about 5,000 of them because the German government has forbidden people from coronavirus hotspots – such as Berlin and Frankfurt – from staying overnight in other parts of the country. Those from risk areas, which include four of Germany’s five biggest cities, are unable to rent rooms in most other regions unless they can provide a fresh negative test result. This is definitely true, as I had to do this to stay in my hotel at the weekend. The hotel owner said he had to do it in case the police came round. Fortunately, I had a negative test certificate to give him.
