LONDON — Formula One’s new owners plan to add a street race in the United States as they attempt to improve the motorsport series that they feel stagnated under the former ownership.

Chase Casey, who ended Bernie Ecclestone’s four-decade reign as F1’s chief executive on Monday, said in an interview Monday that he won’t run a “one-man show” like the 86-year-old billionaire Ecclestone.

U.S. sports and entertainment firm Liberty Media, which is controlled by 75-year-old tycoon John Malone, completed its takeover of F1 on Monday from investment fund CVC Capital Partners.

Casey says Liberty is looking to add a race on the streets of New York, Los Angeles, Miami or Las Vegas on top of the existing annual United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas.
