Great crowds again. Pirelli brought the wrong tires, too hard. On the plus side, the cars may be sliding and that might help the passing. On the minus side, you have to think this helps Red Bull, which has the illegal extra downforce, and it means a one-stopper, so less drama in the pits.

Massa gearbox change? Alonso to clean line? What a team player!

Facility is amazing, but getting to the far side of the track (turns 4-7) is a mess because of the bottleneck at the two bridges you need to cross. Plan on at least an hour from where the shuttle drops you until you get to your seats.

Massa still did a job of it. It seems as if he has finally woken up from his head injury.

IMO that was the best race of the year. Racing everywhere in the field. The track itself was outstanding, also.

LH and team seemed genuinely happy together. Great way to finish, notwithstanding Brasil.

And the black cowboy hats were a very nice touch. Especially seeing one on smiling Mario.

Gotta love them Texans.

Sounds like it would be worth the trip to see the GP.

Great race, good result for the championship (that it goes to the last race to decide).

Spectacular GP. Well done Austin, well done Texas and well done USA.

It was wonderful to see packed stadia at a new venue, well done to the US F1 fans too.
