The Circuit of the Americas has marked the return of Formula One racing to the United States, with the first race in COTA being held in 2012.

Since then, it has been a regular feature in the Formula One World Championship. However, prior to that, it was held at several venues. The most notable ones were Sebring, Watkins Glen, Phoenix, and Indianapolis, before its new home in Austin, Texas.
