Great circuit, great race

Thanks to Texas for building such a great track

It was a fantastic race with a deserved win for Lewis
The podium line-up was a really good touch with Lewis, Seb, and Fernado wearing cowboy hats.

The track was superb, and credit to Texas, and notably there were no accidents.

The next thing the USA need to do is to find a competitive F1 driver and an American F1 car (not team Dodge please )

No trees were harmed creating this message, however some electrons were very inconvenienced.

I was a little concerned for turn 1 but all is good. Lewis (I'm not a big fan of...) drove a hell of race. Ran down Vettel and took a great win. Probably the last one he'll have for McLaren. Fernando lives to fight another day! It was a great show overall. Well done Austin and apparently Michael bought a ranch there over the weekend... Giddy up!
On to Brazil!

Perfect day (cool & sunny) and perfect race (MB powered winner).

Wife and I were on Turn 12 at the end of the longest straight. That's where Hamilton made his pass on Alonso to go from 3rd > 2nd, then later to pass Vettel to assume the lead. It's a great viewing grandstand and that's where we will sit Nov 2013. Since F-1 now uses DRS, this turn is where most passes will be attempted.

As for the new track....TERRIFIC asset for Tezas and the sport. You can see half the track regardless where you sit. Montreal is also good, but be careful on seat selection.

"perfect day, perfect race" I agree with. The one aera that needs improving is the long wait and long walk from the bus drop off site to the race track and the return after. Too hard on elderly and handicapped people. The $20.00 parking fee per day at the downtown parking sites, allocated with your ticket purchase, was never mentioned in the "free bus ride to the track" description. Track layout, facilities and the races excellent. The staff friendly and very helpful.
