2021 Formula 1 United States Grand Prix
Time & Venue
Times: 2020 EVENT POSTPONED UNTIL 2021 due to COVID-19 pandemic
Venue: Circuit of Americas, Austin, Texas
About The Event
Formula One (also known as Formula 1 or F1) is the highest class of single-seater auto racing sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA). Formula One cars are the fastest regulated road-course racing cars in the world, owing to very high cornering speeds achieved through the generation of large amounts of aerodynamic downforce.
IMPORTANT NOTE FROM CIRCUIT OF AMERICAS: “After ongoing discussions and close collaboration with our partners we can confirm that due to the fluid nature of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, local restrictions and the importance of keeping communities and our colleagues safe, the F1 United States Grand Prix will not take place this year.
“The cancellation is prudent, but painful. After a sold out 2019, advance ticket sales deposits were up nearly 250 percent over the prior year, and our staff was preparing our biggest event ever. We had secured blockbuster performers for the evening shows, and the racing this year is fantastic. I’m disappointed for the fans, COTA employees, our community, and everyone in the Formula One Paddock, as I believe we all look forward to what has become a wonderful annual tradition. It is my hope that the pandemic will soon pass and we will celebrate 2021 with the greatest Formula One United States Grand Prix ever!” –Bobby Epstein, COTA Chairman and Owner
“We want to pay tribute to our incredible partners in the Americas and look forward to being back with them next season when they will once again be able to thrill millions of fans around the world.” –Chase Carey, Chairman and CEO of Formula 1
Information regarding the 2021 United States Grand Prix will be released later at a later date.
