US GP Preview: Facts & Stats

Sean Kelly looks back at the history of the United States Grand Prix, reviewing the memorable performances and controversies, as well as the remarkable records that have been set there throughout the years

The second leg of the North American double-header brings us to Indianapolis for the United States Grand Prix - a race that, down the years, has proven to be the most nomadic, statistically complicated and (recently) controversial on the F1 calendar.

This race has been held in no fewer than nine different locations - Sebring (1959), Riverside (1960), Watkins Glen (1961-80), Long Beach (1976-83), Las Vegas (1981-82), Detroit (1982-88), Dallas (1984), Phoenix (1989-91) and, since 2000, at its present location, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the circuit to host IRL, F1 and NASCAR events.
