The American Grand Prix in 2023
Every inhabited continent has a Grand Prix and North America is no exception to that rule. Other forms of motorsport may be bigger there in name and number of fans, but Formula 1 certainly wins the hearts of American enthusiasts. It can hardly be otherwise, given the show that is made of the American GP every year by the organisation and drivers!
Elevation difference, straights and fast corner combinations: The Circuit of the Americas has it all. As the race takes place at the tail end of the season, there is always a chance that the title battle will be decided on the technical track (where designer Hermann Tilke once again lent a helping hand with the track's construction).
