Friday’s first two U.S. Grand Prix practice sessions got practically drowned, leaving many teams hiding in their garages for most of the time available. On Saturday, the onslaught of rain bombarding Central Texas over the past month or so finally decided to give us all a break, and allowed Circuit of The Americas to experience all the fast Formula 1 cars running on a dry surface.

Lewis Hamilton is looking to lock up his fifth world championship on Sunday, after annihilating the COTA lap record on the way to his 81st career pole Saturday afternoon. Teams made damn fine use of Saturday’s free practice 3 and qualifying sessions.

I was all over the track to get all the images you love. Take a gander at a big ass stack of pics from today’s time on track. It’s the F1 car time!
