Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel drove his first laps around the new Circuit of the Americas at the U.S. Grand Prix on Friday and, judging by the times he posted, he rather enjoyed it.
The Formula One season comes down to this: Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel leads Ferrari's Fernando Alonso by 10 points with two races left, the first on a track neither has driven before.
Formula One, the world's most popular motorsport, is trying once again to conquer its final frontier: the United States. This time, the Europeans aim to make it stick.
Promising a fast track with sight lines that will let spectators watch most of the race from wherever they sit, the promoter for the revival of the U.S. Grand Prix said the proposed course is 3.4 miles long with 20 turns and elevations up to 133 feet.
