The United States Grand Prix belongs to one of the oldest motor races in the world, but it wasn't until 1959 that fans could see its first edition in the Formula One World Championship.
In its first edition, the United States Grand Prix was held in Sebring and won by Bruce McLaren, and already the next year, it moved to Riverside, where Stirling Moss triumphed in his Lotus.
After that, the United States Grand Prix moved to Watkins Glen for two decades, until 1980, when it was held for the last time for a brief period. It returned to the calendar again in 1989, this time held in Phoenix, but stayed there only until 1991, and the race was won only by McLaren-Honda drives, Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna, in those three years.
After another seven-year hiatus, the United States Grand Prix returned to the Formula One World Championship in 2000, this time in Indianapolis, and stayed there until 2007. During this period, seven-time World Champion Michael Schumacher won the race five times.
One last circuit change happened after another hiatus between 2008 and 2011, and when the United States Grand Prix returned in 2012, it was held in Austin. Since then, it has been held yearly, except for the 2020 season, when the race was not held due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Currently, the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, in the United States, hosts the Grand Prix. It's a 5.513-kilometer (3.426 miles) long track with 20 turns, and the record lap was recorded in 2019 by Ferrari's Charles Leclerc, who sped through the 20 corners in 1:36.169.
