On the last lap of last weekend U.S. Grand Prix in Texas, Max Verstappen passed Kimi Raikkonen in a move that race stewards later deemed illegal, costing Verstappen a podium spot.

McLaren finally tossed its partnership with Honda aside, meaning the team will have a new, different, hopefully slightly better Renault power unit for the 2018 race season.

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.
