Formula 1’s future in the United States looks stronger than ever.
The sport has recently announced a new and exciting Miami Grand Prix for 2022, and there have been several big new U.S. sponsors come into the sport with Red Bull landing Oracle and Walmart.
In Barcelona, the United States Grand Prix promoter Bobby Epstein popped up, keeping a low profile but clearly keen to wrapping up a new deal for the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. COTA has hosted Formula 1 since 2012, only missing the 2020 race season because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, if all goes well, it will be the ninth F1 race at COTA and the end of the original 10-year contract (2020 having been written off because of “force majeure”).
