In a development that should surprise exactly no one, now four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull took home the win today in the second-ever United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas.
What might be the worst high five in history was recorded on international television at this weekend's Formula One race in Austin. It is worthy of your shame.
We have a winner of the first Formula One race in the United States since 2007, and it is McLaren's Lewis Hamilton.
You guys like cars, right? Well, if you're going to the Circuit of the Americas for Sunday's U.S. Grand Prix, then I have some exciting news — you're going to spend a lot of time in a car.
Drivers and fans alike here in Austin have said that the Circuit of the Americas has lived up to the hype as one of the best race courses in the world.
As I walked into the paddock at the brand new Circuit of the Americas I immediately ran into a local F1 fan I first met back in February when I visited the scarcely started track. The joyous look on his face probably mirrored mine. A look that said "Holy shit this is really happening."
After two-and-a-half years of hype, promotions, construction, legal fights, planning, protests from residents and grandstanding by Bernie Ecclestone, Formula One will at last make its triumphant return to the United States in just one week. For real this time. Seriously! We promise.
Formula One is making its triumphant return to the Unites States this November, and we know how you can get trackside at the United States Grand Prix without paying a dime. There's just one catch.
Formula One racing is a sport associated with a certain kind of wealthy international traveler — someone who charters a yacht to enjoy the Monaco Grand Prix. Boy aren't they going to be surprised later this year when they travel to the newest F1 race — in a town on the outskirts of Austin so culturally remote their…
Peering out across a wooden platform at the end of what's supposed to be Turn 1 it's difficult to believe this muddy collection of roads will soon be a world-class Formula 1 circuit (slightly less difficult to believe than two weeks ago). Yet the crews are on-site and construction of the Circuit of the Americas (CoTA)…
The Circuit of the Americas in Austin agreed to bump its inaugural Formula One grand prix to 2013 in light of recent financial troubles and F1 Muppet-master Bernie Ecclestone's promise/threat to hold the race back until he gets his money.
The US Grand Prix in Austin has less than three weeks to sort out financial troubles or else it will be absolutely cancelled. Speed's reporting that the race contract is gone, $25 million has dried up, and the track can't get a letter of credit. Prospects look grim.
If you've been thinking that the idea of Formula 1 coming back to America a year from now at a world-class circuit near Austin, Texas, was too good to be true, F1 maestro Bernie Ecclestone says your concern may be justified. Update!
The Texas hill country was alive with the sounds of a Formula One V10 this past weekend as racing superstar and F1 commentator David Coulthard shredded tires of the Red Bull F1 showcar on the streets of Austin. Jalopnik had a chance to talk to Coulthard and get his impressions of F1 in the United States and breakfast…
Most of the Circuit of the Americas outside of Austin is just a cleared dirt track, but that didn't stop David Coulthard from ripping it up in the Red Bull demonstration car while being chased by cowboys. An epic video is clearly in the making with the Capitol donuts from this weekend.
