UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX

After a five-year hiatus, Formula One made a much-anticipated return to the United States in 2012, with Austin's Circuit of the Americas providing a new home for the event. Inspired by some of grand prix racing's great venues, the 5.5km circuit features sections that take their cues from Silverstone's Becketts-Maggots complex, Hockenheim's stadium section and Istanbul's long multi-apex Turn 8. The signature stretch, however, might just be the run from the start-finish line up a steep incline to an almost blind hairpin. Praised by drivers and attended by massive crowds, COTA looks set to be a superb long-term home for F1 in the US.
