round 17: United States

THE CIRCUIT OF THE AMERICAS

massa_grid

The Circuit of The Americas plays host this weekend to its third consecutive US Grand Prix, which has quickly become one of the most popular race destinations of the season.

WILLIAMS MARTINI RACING will be hoping to continue the competitive form it has shown throughout the 2014 season in this weekend’s Grand Prix, and to increase its hold on third place in the Championship.

The team has scored points in both previous trips to Austin and heads into the race weekend on the back of its sixth podium of the season, so hopes are high for a strong stateside performance.

The Circuit of The Americas is one of only a handful of anti-clockwise tracks on the Formula One calendar and, as such, it presents special demands. Drivers will see greater physical stresses on their bodies through the larger than usual number of left-hand turns, which cause lateral forces in the opposite direction to normal. The pit crews will also have some adapting to do as the cars will be arriving from the opposite direction to that to which they are accustomed.

The circuit incorporates some large elevation changes over the lap, with the run-up to Turn 1 on the start-finish straight being particularly difficult as the apex is located on the crest of the hill. The somewhat blind entry makes judgment of the braking and turning in points particularly difficult.

The race is sure to be exciting, with a good overtaking opportunity in the braking zone at the end of the kilometre-long straight although the first part of the track can frustrate a driver trapped behind a slower car. With the track being wider than average, there is plenty of room to make a move at many different points on this tortuous track, and with good run off areas, little punishment for having a go.
