The circuit is 3.426 miles and has 20 turns. Charles Lelerc set the track record fastest lap at 1:36.169 for Ferrari in 2019.

The first ever United States Grand Prix was held in 1908 in Savannah, Georgia, and Frenchman Louis Wagner won the race for his constructor Fiat.
The race was then held six more times until 1917 when it went on a 40 year hiatus.
Returning in 1957 for its first edition as a proper F1 race, the race moved to Riverside in California before transferring to Sebring in Florida and then Watkins Glen in New York in 1961, where it was held for the next 20 years.
A further break followed until the race returned in 1989 in Phoenix, Arizona for a three-year spell.
The Grand Prix was not held between 1992 and 1999 before coming back in 2000, this time in Indianapolis.
Another hiatus between 2008 and 2011 followed before the Grand Prix landed in its current venue in 2012.
Lewis Hamilton has won the most United States Grands Prix, taking the race in 2007, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.
Michael Schumacher is runner-up in the all-time winner standings having won five times, including an impressive run of winning four seasons in a row.
The German was victorious in the 2000, 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006 editions, while Verstappen has won the race twice.
Thanks in no small part to Schumacher's dominance of the race in the early 2000s, Ferrari have won the most United States Grands Prix with 10.
The Scuderia were victorious in the 1975, 1978, 1979, 2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2018 editions of the race.
The 2023 United States Grand Prix was a thrilling race that saw Max Verstappen take his 50th career victory in Formula 1.
The United States Grand Prix was the only race in the country for many years, but the sport's stateside rise in popularity in recent years has led to two new races being added to the calendar.
After the inaugural Miami GP was held in 2022, the first ever Las Vegas Grand Prix is set to debut in Paradise, Nevada on November 18th meaning there will be three American F1 races in 2023.
