The track of the USA GP

The USA GP of Austin will be held at the Circuit of The Americas.

Formula 1 raced on the circuit for the first time in 2012. Since then, the race in Texas has been a permanent fixture on the Formula 1 calendar.

The track is one of the few where the players race counterclockwise.

The Circuit of The America is 5.516 kilometers long and includes 20 turns. Drivers complete 56 laps and a total distance of 308.405 kilometers.

The record winner is Lewis Hamilton, who has been at the top of the podium five times in Texas.

Last year, Max Verstappen won the Austin Grand Prix.

Who is the favorite for the 2023 USA Austin Grand Prix?

Who will win the Austin Grand Prix in 2023? Basically, the question doesn’t arise, because world champion Max Verstappen enters the race as the house favorite.

The Dutchman has by far the lowest odds with the betting providers, which is not surprising.

After all, “Mad Max” has won 14 of the 17 Grand Prix races this season.

The question as to which two drivers will complete the podium is likely to be more exciting.

Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri are the hottest contenders for second and third place. The Briton in particular is a force to be reckoned with after three podium finishes in a row.

The bookmakers also give Oscar Piastri, who has been driving strongly recently, a good chance. Behind him come Sergio Perez and the Mercedes and Ferrari drivers.
