Circuit of The Americas

Fri 20 OctSun 22 Oct 2017

The Circuit of The Americas will host the US Grand Prix once again this year on 20-22 October 2017.

Last year's race was won by Lewis Hamilton, with Nico Rosberg in second and Daniel Ricciardo placing third. The lap record is held by Sebastian Vettel, who set a time of 1:39.347 in 2012.

"The weather looks thundery over Austin for the USA grand prix, with the risk of thunderstorms on each day, Friday through to race day on Sunday. The highest risk is morning time with some sun during the day and highs of 31C on Saturday and 26C on Sunday. Winds remain gentle."

20-22 October - How will the weather affect this year's United States Grand Prix?

In 2012 Formula 1 returned to the US for the first time since 2007, with a brand new venue in Austin, Texas. The Circuit of The Americas is the first purpose built Formula 1 facility in the US, and challenges drivers with dramatic elevation changes and turns inspired by some of the best F1 circuits.  

How does weather affect racing?

Different weather conditions can result in very different races, and Formula 1 teams adapt their strategy accordingly, for example using different tyres in wet conditions, and taking account of cross winds which can cause stability problems at high speeds.
