19-21 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.

You can check the weather forecast for other events through the Events Calendar.
