Circuit Guide

The Circuit of the Americas is one of the newest circuits on the Formula 1 calendar, having opened in October 2012 when it hosted the United States Grand Prix, which was won by Lewis Hamilton.

The 3.427 mile circuit takes inspirations from other tracks on the F1 schedule and it is a popular venue for drivers, who have welcomed its challenging nature. A couple of long straights allow drivers to put their foot down, but a series of twists and turns between corners 2 and 20 and corners 12 and 18 mean drivers are tested.

Lewis Hamilton has been the most successful driver since the Circuit of the Americas was added to the F1 calendar, winning the race in five of the last eight seasons, but he has not won the United States Grand Prix since 2017 and in 2019 his fastest lap record was eclipsed by rising Ferrari star Charles Leclerc.

Location: Circuit of the Americas, Austin, Texas, United States.
Number Of Laps: 56
Lap Length: 3.427 miles
Lap Record: Charles Leclerc, 1 minute 36.189 seconds (2019)
