US Grand Prix

The US Grand Prix 2019 commences barely a week after the Mexican Grand Prix. It is at this race that Lewis Hamilton will most likely clinch his sixth world championship. This weekend’s race will be held at the Circuit of the Americas, as has been the case since 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.
