Formula 1 teams will travel to Austin, Texas this week, where drivers will face off in another fast race this weekend during the United States Grand Prix. For us, this means it will be too late.
This is everything you need to know for your race weekend
There is still a lot to experience
Max Verstappen had two weeks to celebrate after winning his third consecutive world title. But anyone who thinks that after winning the world title and constructors’ title racing will become boring is wrong. There is still a lot to fight for in the near future.
Max Verstappen already has the world title in his pocket, but with five more GPs planned, he could break another record this season. For example, a world champion could improve his own record by fifteen Grand Prix victories in a single season. Max is currently fourteen years old, so he could reach the same level this weekend.
He can also increase the number of first places in a season. This record is now held by Sebastian Vettel, who has started on pole fifteen times. Verstappen’s counter is now at ten.
Back to back speed racing
Max Verstappen has won the past two years at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, but this year things will be a little different. For the first time in history, we’ll be dealing with a back-to-back sprint. This means that we will actually qualify on Friday. The sprint race follows on Saturday and the race on Sunday.
The race starts at 2:00 PM local time, but due to the time difference it doesn’t start until 9:00 PM. Below you will find the full schedule for this weekend.
