The Watkins Glen circuit had similarities to the British Brands Hatch circuit, in that a number of corners were banked and very fast and that the circuit was located in a very green part of the world.
Clark dominated the event, leading comfortably from his teammate Hill and American Dan Gurney in an Eagle. In Mario Andretti put his Lotus 49 on pole position in his first ever Formula One race on a track he had never seen before.
Austrian Jochen Rindt won in — his first Formula One race. Graham Hill had a much worse day, however. In , the course was changed considerably.
The entire lower section of the track was torn up and re-drawn, and there was a whole new "boot" section which added more than a mile to the course, lengthening it to 3.
It also saw a new pitlane and pit straight and three new corners a new first, second-to last and last corners. Watkins Glen had been transformed from a quick, small circuit into a fast, scenic and very tough up-and-down circuit where just about every corner was banked and long; uncommonly hard driving and maximum effort was required for almost every part of a lap.
Cevert made it a Tyrrell 1—2. The race was at this point attracting lots of entries; 30 drivers entered and qualified for the race.
But from to , the event reached its probable low. The Grand Prix was to become a memorable event for all the wrong reasons.
Stewart, unknown to almost everyone even his wife Helen had planned to retire after this race. The car vaulted and went over the barriers.
The barriers cut Cevert in half and he was killed instantly. The Tyrrell was completely destroyed and the right rear tire was sticking over the Armco barriers.
South African driver Jody Scheckter tried to get him out- but it was no use; Cevert was so clearly dead. The marshals just left Cevert in the car and threw a cover over the cockpit.
The illustrious Scotsman never raced competitively again. The race, however, was an exciting one. American Peter Revson finished fifth at his home race at his home track.
Both drivers had the same number of points and Regazzoni, driving a Ferrari, ran into a host of problems during the race and finished out of the points.
The event was marred by yet another fatal accident. The young Austrian Helmut Koinigg crashed at the fast, long Outer Loop corner, the bend after the extended back straight on Lap The race however, was a politically charged event.
The thin and wiry Montezemolo actually got into a bit of a scuffle with the large Martin; and Montezemolo withdrew Regazzoni in protest.
At this point, Hunt was only three points behind Lauda for the final race at Fuji, Japan. The race also saw Jacky Ickx crash hugely at the Chute, the Belgian survived but was injured.
Hunt won again on a very wet track as he held off home favorite Mario Andretti in a Lotus 78 to win by two seconds.
Mechanical problems forced Andretti to retire early from the race, which was won by Carlos Reutemann in a Ferrari T3. But by this time, Watkins Glen had deteriorated from its earlier splendor.
Drivers began complaining about the bumpy track surface, and the teams and press were concerned over facilities, the level of security and rowdy fans.
Even though the Bog was made into a parking lot in , things still did not improve sufficiently over the years. In , the European motorsports governing body, FISA, demanded that the track owners make safety improvements to the track, which were made; and then the event was due to be cancelled for the season, but it was given a reprieve by FISA after promising to upgrade facilities over the winter.
It was initially included on the calendar, but cancelled after the debts could not be paid and government loans were denied. Phoenix, like many American cities was designed on the grid system, the circuit was made up entirely of 2nd gear degree corners and provided nearly no driving challenge or exciting corners to watch cars go around.
Although the circuit was far less bumpy and a lot wider than Detroit and the circuits long straights made it easy to overtake and difficult to judge braking, which produced some good racing.
Out of 40, capacity 34, tickets were sold. Ecclestone expected the event to be sold out but was told that local populace avoids outdoor events during summer.
The circuit had to be changed for race due to the construction of a new Phoenix Suns basketball arena, and the revised circuit was generally seen to be an improvement.
And this time Senna won the race from pole position. Indianapolis was rumored to have been considering a Formula One race since the USGP left Phoenix; with a proposed street race for the season in downtown Indianapolis.
The crowd at the race was estimated at over ,, perhaps the largest ever in F1. In , the race took place less than three weeks after the September 11, attacks in the US, and many teams and drivers featured special tributes to the USA on their cars and helmets.
The edition saw Schumacher and teammate Rubens Barrichello trading places near the finish line as Schumacher attempted to engineer a dead heat with Barrichello.
In , problems with Michelin tires led to seven teams withdrawing from the race after the formation lap.
Only the three teams six cars with Bridgestone tires started the United States Grand Prix , and the event was considered a farce.
Grand Prix would be the last one held at IMS for the foreseeable future, as both sides could not agree on the terms for the event. Due to the expensive fees paid to host a Grand Prix, the race would require a title sponsor to be economically viable.
Various efforts were made to try and bring the race to the New York City region. Ecclestone was quoted as saying the race would take place across the Hudson River in New Jersey , with the Manhattan skyline overlooking the circuit.
In May , it was announced that Monticello Motor Club in upstate New York — a circuit complex modeled on a private country club near Monticello — had submitted a bid for the rights to host the race.
On May 25, , Austin, Texas , was awarded the race on a ten-year contract, as Ecclestone and event promoter Full Throttle Productions agreed to a deal beginning in The event is being held on a purpose-built new track, which was named Circuit of the Americas.
On November 15, , it was reported that construction of the circuit had been temporarily halted as the owners had not yet been awarded the contract to stage the race in ,  following reports that Bernie Ecclestone had cast doubt on the race taking place.
Grand Prix was confirmed to be held at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin on the original scheduled date in It has been lauded from all quarters of Formula One.

A permanent challenge trophy, commemorative of the place that the premier American speedway event has in auto racing annals, was authorized, effective this year.
Teammate Jenson Button hoped for Alonso to "annihilate" him, adding: Having already used the allowed four units for the season, both drivers received ten-place grid penalties.
In preparation for the effects of the high altitude in Mexico , Mercedes added two "ears" at the top of the airbox in order to improve cooling to the Energy Recovery System of their power unit.
The race used the same two DRS zones as previous races at the track. Ferrari was in second place on points, points ahead of Williams. Per the regulations for the season, three practice sessions were scheduled, two 1.
The session started on a very wet track, but with no more rain falling, it dried out as the practice progressed, with drivers soon switching to intermediate tyres.
Lewis Hamilton was fifth fastest, behind Carlos Sainz Jr. Despite going off the track late in the session, Fernando Alonso was ninth fastest in the McLaren with the new power unit.
A gearbox problem meant that Pastor Maldonado was unable to take to the track, while at Sauber, Raffaele Marciello replaced Felipe Nasr , ending the session three-tenths of a second quicker than teammate Marcus Ericsson.
The practice session on Saturday was run without spectators to ensure their safety. On track, Lewis Hamilton was fastest, ahead of his closest championship rival Sebastian Vettel.
With conditions worsening over the course of the session, Vettel spun out twice. In one respect, maybe if we decided three hours earlier it would have been better for the fans.
But we wanted to get out there and drive and put on a show. Delaying it every half an hour was the way it had to be.
Ferrari later condemned the behaviour of their fellow teams, with team principal Maurizio Arrivabene saying: Qualifying was scheduled to consist of three parts, 18, 15 and 12 minutes in length respectively, with five drivers eliminated from competing after each of the first two sessions.
Due to the prospect of worsening rain and the chance that qualifying could be brought to an end by the weather at any point, the teams fought for grid positions early on, with Lewis Hamilton , Nico Rosberg and Daniel Ricciardo setting the fastest times.
Sebastian Vettel, after making contact with a barrier, finished Q1 in fifteenth place, barely making it into Q2. In Q2, lap times improved and the two Mercedes drivers led the way, with Rosberg a little over a tenth of a second ahead of teammate Hamilton.
Conditions soon worsened, preventing faster lap times. Many drivers spun out in the latter part of the session, complaining about aquaplaning.
With more rain falling, the decision was made to cancel the third part of qualifying and use the results of Q2 to determine the grid.
The penalties for both Ferraris saw Fernando Alonso move up to ninth on the grid, the highest grid position for McLaren at that point of the season.
While the rain had stopped come race time, the track was still wet and slippery and all drivers opted to start on intermediate tyres.
Hamilton got away better at the start, entering the first corner alongside pole-sitter Rosberg and, by forcing the German wide, took the lead exiting turn one.
Further back, a collision involved Alonso, Massa, the two Sauber cars of Ericsson and Nasr as well as Bottas, who made a pit stop after the first lap, as did Nasr, who was the first to fit slick tyres, as the track was starting to dry.
With Kvyat just half a second behind the championship leader, a virtual safety car period was declared on lap five to clear the debris from the first corner incident.
Romain Grosjean became another victim of the accident on lap one, when he came into the pit lane for a second time on lap 12 and retired.
By the same time, Sebastian Vettel had moved up into sixth place from thirteenth on the grid. Up front, Kvyat went wide while trying to overtake Rosberg, allowing teammate Ricciardo through into third; Ricciardo in turn made a successful manoeuvre on Rosberg to move up into second.
A battle for the lead developed between Hamilton and Ricciardo, until the Australian moved around Hamilton on lap With the grip of the intermediate tyres deteriorating, there were many overtaking manoeuvres on track.
Rosberg unsuccessfully tried to overtake teammate Hamilton for second on lap 16, while Verstappen took sixth place from Vettel one lap later, only to run wide and lose the position again.
On lap 18, Rosberg moved ahead of Hamilton, who was the first of the front runners to change tyres at the end of the lap, going for a dry compound.
The other frontrunners followed suit over the next couple of laps. Following the pit stops, Ricciardo led from Rosberg, Kvyat and Hamilton.
On lap 24, he reached Kvyat and overtook him for fourth, while Nico Rosberg extended his lead to Ricciardo to nine seconds by lap Hamilton took second place from Ricciardo one lap later.
At this halfway point of the race, the order stood as: Rosberg, Hamilton, Ricciardo, Kvyat, Verstappen, as Vettel used the safety car period for a tyre change, moving him back into sixth.
When the safety car pulled into pit lane at the end of lap 32, Vettel was back in fifth after Verstappen had also made a pit stop for new tyres.
However, Ricciardo fought back to regain the place in the next corner. Vettel was able to make the move stick going into turn one on the subsequent lap.
On lap 35, Verstappen overtook the second Red Bull of Ricciardo to move into fourth. Ricciardo was able to continue, but was overtaken by his teammate, with Jenson Button behind in seventh place.
By lap 40, when the safety car period was over, Rosberg was up into third at the expense of Verstappen, while Alonso moved up several places into sixth, with teammate Button in fifth.
Running on newer tyres, Rosberg was able to overtake Vettel on lap One lap later, Daniil Kvyat suffered a heavy impact at the penultimate corner, causing another safety car period.
Both Hamilton and Vettel used this to change tyres again, as did Button on lap The safety car came back in at the end of lap 46, with the order being:
