United States GP

20 Oct 2018 - 21 Oct 2018

The United States Grand Prix, which was initially known as the American Grand Prize, has been

held in the U.S. on and off since 1908. As of 2017, the 47 races have taken place in ten different

locations in total.


The Track – Circuit of the Americas

Circuit of the American or COTA is a motor racing facility located in Austin, Texas, which has

hosted the U.S. GP every year since 2012. It is the first circuit in the United States to be built for

the purpose of Formula one. The circuit features 20 turns with an elevation change of 133 feet

(41 metres).

The 5.513 km long track draws inspiration from several European Formula One circuits like the

Silverstone circuit and the Hockenheim circuit, and a replica of Istanbul’s turn 8.


First Winner


Lewis Hamilton is the driver to come on top at the first ever race held at COTA in 2012.

However, Louis Wagner was the driver to win the championship held for the first time in 1908,

driving for Fiat.


Most successful drivers


A total of nine drivers hold most victories in the Championship. Lewis Hamilton tops the list

with a total of six victories, followed by Michael Schumacher who has won five times. Then

comes the British driver, Graham Hill, who won three time in the 60’s.


Latest from the United States Grand Prix


Ever since Formula One’s debut at the COTA in 2012, victories have solely been shared between

Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel.

Lewis Hamilton currently ranks number one in Formula One standings and would want to

maintain his position by winning again.

On the other hand, Sebastian Vettel, currently second in Formula one standings, would be

willing to do whatever it takes to take down Hamilton.

The Circuit Of the Americas is quickly gaining a similar situation between F1’s two most

successful active drivers, Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost.
