F1 2015 United States GP – News, Results, Standings…

If any new race can challenge the popularity of Singapore, then the United States Grand Prix at the superb Circuit of the Americas [COTA] is it. Since F1 went back to America in 2012, COTA has extended a superb welcome with huge crowds at the track and a lively reception in downtown Austin.

The Texan capital is a good fit for F1, being one of the USA’s primary technology hubs. It’s also recognised for its eccentricities and the phrase ‘keep Austin weird’ has been adopted as the unofficial slogan of the municipality. To the bemusement of many within the F1 paddock, hosting F1 apparently fits very neatly into the ethos.

There is nothing unusual about COTA. In fact this exceptionally attractive circuit was instantly familiar, with sections of track heavily reminiscent of Silverstone and Hockenheim. The signature Turn One, however, with its steep climb and multiple lines into a blind corner, is all COTA’s own. The mixture of high-speed sweepers similar to the Silverstone complex of Maggots-Becketts-Chapel, and a lower speed complex reminiscent of Hockenheim’s stadium has contradictory requirements, making set-up a very delicate balancing act.
