Formula 1 is just around the corner starting on October 20th through 22nd at the Circuit of The Americas (COTA) in Austin, Texas. COTA is the premier destination for world-class motorsports and entertainment in the United States. Set on 1,500 acres in the rolling hills just outside downtown Austin, COTA has hosted the biggest names in racing, action sports and music since 2012.
The 20-turn, counterclockwise circuit takes advantage of the naturally undulating landscape, including an intimidating 133-foot hill at Turn 1 that must be seen in person to be believed. It is home to the only Formula 1 race in America. Within the track is Austin360 Amphitheater, the largest permanent outdoor amphitheater in Central Texas, and its 251-foot signature observation tower.
This year looks like we are going to have an exciting Formula 1 in Austin. Below are the current standings and you can also find the latest standings during the Belgium Races on the Formula 1 page located here.
