The 2013 United States Grand Prix (formally the 2013 Formula 1 United States Grand Prix)[1] will be a Formula One motor race held at the Circuit of the Americas in Travis County], near Austin, Texas on November 17, 2013. The race, run over fifty-six laps, will be the penultimate round of the 2012 championship.[2]



After a troubled construction period that saw a stop-work order issued in November 2011,[3] and the threat of the race being removed from the Formula One calendar altogether,[4] construction laid the final layer of tarmac on September 21.[5] The circuit passed its final pre-race inspection on September 25, allowing the race to go ahead as planned.[6][7] By comparison, the most-recent additions to the Formula One calendar – the Korea International Circuit in South Korea and the Buddh International Circuit in India – were only completed in the days leading up to their inaugural races.[8][9] The event was not the first Formula One Grand Prix in the state of Texas- the one-off Dallas Grand Prix was held in July 1984 and the event was exasperated by the extremely high temperatures of a Texas summer.
