After racing around the world in a season that began in March, Formula 1 is in the United States this weekend for the second and final time this year. ABC will have a live telecast of the Formula 1 Aramco United States Grand Prix on Sunday, Oct. 23, with coverage from Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, beginning at 1:30 p.m. ET. The race starts at 3 p.m.
The beat goes on for Lewis Hamilton. Hamilton, the seven-time Formula 1 champion, had no trouble on Sunday in Portugal, winning the F1 Portuguese Grand Prix in convincing fashion over Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and Hamilton’s Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas.
British Grand Prix boss Stuart Pringle is desperate for spectators to be able to attend his race at Silverstone Circuit in July. And get this, he’s hopeful of a 140,000-strong sellout on race day. The COVID-19 pandemic might have a little bit to say about that, as it as for the past year.
