3D rendering of the new USA Formula 1 circuit surfaces
A 3D rendering of the new US Formula 1 track in Austin, Texas, has been revealed. The track is 3.4 miles long and will feature an elevation change of 133 feet. The track has drawn inspiration from other legendary tracks; for example, Turns 3 through 6 are reminiscent of the high speed Maggotts/Becketts complex at Silverstone, Turns 12 through 15 are similar to Hockenheim’s stadium area, and Turns 16 through 18 are very much alike the speedy Turn 8 combo at Istanbul. Does this mean that the circuit won’t be unique in its own way? Not quite. Turn 1 is an uphill hairpin which will be recognized as the track’s “signature” corner.
