Logan Sargeant

Welcome back F1 fans worldwide. This weekend we are in Austin Texas for the Formula 1 Aramco, The United States Grand Prix also known as COTA. This is the land of the great American race car driver Mario Andretti, the last US driver to win the World Championship.

Let us start by looking at some of the features of this track. The first Grand Prix here was in 2012, so this year marks 10 years of F1 racing in Austin Texas.

The circuit length is 5.513 km, with fifty-six laps to the checkered flag. The race distance is 304.305 km. Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc has the lap record of 1.36.169 set in 2019.

The Flying Dutch Max Verstappen has locked up his second Championship title in two years but there is still a lot to fight for this race.

Red Bull Racing could win the Constructors title this weekend. The Constructors title helps the whole team with more sponsorship coinage for the racing team, program and its research & development.

Perez of Red Bull Racing and Leclerc of Ferrari are still fighting for second and third place, but let us not forget the mid-fields of McLaren, Alfa Romeo and Alpine who also have a lot at stake. The more points they can score the higher the sponsorships in terms of currency.

FP1 & FP2Out Lap overview

The racers were in full force with their Texas swagger this weekend. Cowboy hats, horses and all the clothier that comes with it was on display before the drivers settled into their machinery and started assessing the track, which has one of the highest G-force elements of all the circuits.

Verstappen has twelve wins this season and will be going for his 13th win trying to tie the record held by two other drivers, Schumacher and Vettel.

Breaking News,

American driver Logan Sargeant is on the track-driving for Haas Racing on his home dirt. It is important to mention that he could be auditioning for a seat at Team Williams Racing for next season. This would be very welcoming and exciting news for young drivers in the United States and big news for motorsport and F1 overall.
