When F1 first announced it was coming to Austin, many were surprised. Since its first run in 2012, the United States Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas has swiftly become one of the drivers’ favorite tracks on the calendar because the U.S. Grand Prix tests their technical driving abilities throughout, and it provides more opportunities to overtake—or pass—other cars than most other races throughout the world. This also makes Austin’s race one of the more entertaining races on the tour because—much like the Texas weather on display for the 2018 USGP—if you don’t like it, stick around and it’ll change.
