5. 2012 US Grand Prix
After 5 years without a race, Formula 1 returned to the United States in 2012 with the US Grand Prix which was held at the newly built Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. Sebastian Vettel started from pole and lead most of the race but towards the end, Hamilton came through to pass him and went on to win the race. Crucially, Alonso finished third which meant the title race between Vettel and Alonso went on and became one of the closest title fights in near history with Vettel clinching it at the last race and winning the title by 3 points.
