US Grand Prix

US Grand Prix – Latest News, Winners, Qualifying, Circuits, Track

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. Ever since that race in Austin, F1 has held a race in the USA in every season except the current World Championship calendar.

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.

Valtteri Bottas won the 2019 US Grand Prix but his victory was overshadowed by Lewis Hamilton clinching his sixth World Championship and 3rd consecutive title with Mercedes (5 overall).
