F1 going to USA
Updated: Nov 14, 2019
This coming weekend the Formula-1 circus arrives to Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas.
What happened in the previous 2019 Mexican GP?
Verstappen took pole position during qualifying, but in yellow flag conditions due to Bottas hitting the barrier at the last corner, he was punished with the loss of three positions starting the race in fourth, so Leclerc was promoted to starting first position with Vettel in second and Hamilton in third.
Exciting race, it worth watching, see the race summary at the link below.

What to expect from USA GP Race
In the year 2018, we saw a Kimi Raikkonen show starting on second but taking the lead early on, turning the first curve at first, just ahead of Lewis Hamilton who started first. In late 2018, Raikkonen was transferred to the Alfa Romeo team, being replaced at Ferrari by Charles Leclerc.
Lewis usually drives strong, on seven races held in Austin, Texas, Lewis Hamilton won on 5 occasions, not winning the 2013 race with first place to the German, Sebastian Vettel, while still running with Red Bull and 2018, won by Kimi Raikkonen as mentioned above.
