2012 Formula 1 United States Grand Prix

The long wait is over! F1 finally returns to United States with an bespoke track that looks great and lots of anticipation!
This might be the weekend for Vettel the take his third World Champion if he can score 15 points or more (15 points, he will still take World Champion with 5 wins, more than Alonso's 3 wins.)
And Red Bull Racing only needs another 5 points to wins their third successive Constructors Championship. And pay more for next year's (est 4.4 million pounds) entry fee!

Thanks for the behind the scenes pictures, interesting. I hope the track proves to be a good drive and gives the spectators a good show. The USA has been long overdue for an adequate F1 track, glad it's finally here!

It could very well be decided here. The track looks great, but it looks like a circuit purpose-built for Red Bull. Barring anything unusual, this should be a cakewalk for Vettel. If Alonso doesn't get on the podium, the championship will be over.
