As the competitors for the 2018 FIA Formula One World Championship™ emerge, the crowd rises, and from the ground exudes an indescribable energy and anticipation. Without a doubt, Formula 1™ racing is the worlds’ most exciting, glamorous, demanding and prestigious motor racing series, and it is also the most popular annual sporting series worldwide!
The Austin race is one of the last races of the championship. For the first time this season, Hamilton has a mathematical chance of clinching the title in Texas, while Scuderia Ferrari can now hope only to fight for a prestigious win. Ferrari may have had the better car over the course of this season, especially in the first part of the year, but Hamilton and Mercedes in particular have been more operationally efficient in comparison. Sebastian Vettel’s aspirations for a fifth Formula 1 world championship are therefore hanging in the balance, but the fighting spirit will most definitely still be there.
Join us later in the evening for the latest updates and results from the Circuit of the Americas, as the second practice session for the 2018 United States Grand Prix is about to start, with Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen at the wheel of the SF71H, ready to continue evaluating and Identifying the ideal set-up ahead of the qualifying session and the race on Sunday.
