Bumps in circuit in US should be history from now on

For years there have been complaints about the quality of the asphalt at the Circuit of the Americas. The track is very bumpy and that doesn't please especially the Formula 1 drivers. The circuit in Austin hopes to have solved the issue now.

COTA is built on swampy ground, which results in subsidence. With a new layer of asphalt, the problems in the United States should be a thing of the past.

In a statement, the organizers said, "From there, COTA worked to repave Turns 2-10 and 12-16 and build a concrete pad to reinforce the areas at Turn 2 and 10. Additionally, COTA worked with contractors to ensure the new asphalt and concrete foundations were even and flush, creating an ideal track for upcoming races and events."

The United States Grand Prix is scheduled for the weekend of October 21-23. Last year, Max Verstappen managed to win the race.
