Formula One: 'Triple header' of Monaco, New Jersey & Canada a real headache, say teams

YEONGAM, South Korea (REUTERS) - Formula One teams face an almost impossible logistical challenge if a race in New Jersey remains on the 2014 calendar on the weekend immediately after Monaco, team managers said on Friday.
