Everything’s bigger in Texas

Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN heads to the United States for the first of three races in the Americas as Austin hosts for the 2021 United States Grand Prix, the 17th round of the championship, ahead of back-to-back races in Mexico and Brazil at the beginning of November.

We missed racing in Austin: the last time we went there, in 2019, was another reminder of what a great weekend this event can produce. The circuit is a great test of driver and machine, with an undulating layout that recalls some of the best sections from other epic tracks; the city is a never-ending source of excitement as life turns into a week-long celebration of Formula One; but what makes this event truly great is the fans. Their knowledgeable, passionate presence is what we missed so much in the two years since we last visited Texas.

We’ll return to the Circuit of the Americas eager to experience a great American Welcome: and we hope to return the favour, delivering a great show for the fans that have endured so long without Formula One. We will go out to race hard, race fair, and hopefully bring home points. Because, after all, wouldn’t that be the best way to celebrate our return to Austin and its race?
