Despite a love-hate relationship with F1, the United States Grand Prix has found a stable home in the form of the Circuit of the Americas track located in Austin, Texas.

F1 United States Grand Prix 2021

Run-on the 5.5-kilometer Circuit of the Americas track, the United States Grand Prix, returned to the Formula 1 calendar after a four-year hiatus in 2012. While F1 has struggled to break into the mainstream in the U.S. the country remains an important market for the Liberty Group (who own the commercial rights to the sport) and the championship has had an on-again-off-again relationship with the country since the first race official F1 race in 1959.

Since then the event has been held on a variety of tracks including Sebring, Watkins Glen, a street circuit in Phoenix, and Indianapolis. The race in Indianapolis in particular left a bitter taste in the mouths of the American spectators as the race in 2005 turned into a farce when all the cars using the Michelin brand of tires pulled into the pits at the end of the formation due to their inability to guarantee the safety of their drivers after a series of tire failures occurred on the banked final turn of the race track.

Despite running for two more years, the United States Grand Prix was eventually called off before returning in 2012. The Circuit of the Americas or COTA for short is one of a few tracks on the F1 calendar that is run anti-clockwise, this means there are more left-hand turns than right-hand ones. The circuit has also drawn inspiration from several tracks around the world and has tried to replicate many famous corners including the Maggots-Becketts sequence from Silverstone, the Senna S’s from Interlagos, and Istanbul’s famous turn ‘8’.

Lewis Hamilton has dominated proceedings at the circuit winning five out of the eight races run on the Circuit of the Americas track. Other winners include Sebastian Vettel in 2013, and Finns Kimi Raikkonen and Valtteri Bottas in 2018 and 2019 respectively. Seven-time world champion Michael Schumacher has won a total of five United States Grand Prix only being beaten by Lewis Hamilton who has six wins.

The United States Grand Prix 2020

Like several other fly-away races the United States Grand Prix was canceled in 2020 due to the coronavirus. Valtteri Bottas won the 2019 edition of the race after starting from pole, Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, and lined up second but was forced to retire from the race after a suspension failure. This opened the door for Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen who finished second and third respectively.

When is the 2021 United States Grand Prix on the F1 calendar?
The United States Grand Prix is scheduled to take place on the weekend of October 22-24 and is provisionally set to be the 18th race of the Formula 1 season. The first two free practice sessions will take place on October 22, with qualifying on Saturday, October 23 at 23:00 CET.
