2012 United States GP (Austin): Formula One (F1) Starting Line-Up & Race Preview


By Mike Sulka

The Formula One F1 series will race for the first time in the 2012 United States Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas. The track completed in 2012 is a 3.427 mile / 5.516 km anti-clockwise road course with 20 turns and some elevation in the design by Hermann Tilke. The track is expecting over 100,000 fans today.

Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel took Pole during today's qualifying that was a bit closer than was expected with McLaren driver Lewis Hamilton putting up a huge lap. That being said, Hamilton shouldn't be a factor for the win. When starting in the top-three, Hamilton has finished worse than he started nine times out of 12 this season.

Red Bull's Mark Webber will be starting third and will have one mission, keep everyone behind Vettel.

Fernando Alonso and Ferrari had another horrid qualifying when it mattered - he'll start ninth.

Vettel can clinch the championship today if Alonso finishes fifth or worse.

Since the German Grand Prix in July when Alonso took Pole, his Ferrari hasn't started better than fourth. That's nine Grand Prix without the proper car to do battle for the 2012 Formula 1 F1 World driver's championship.

That's not just sad, its pathetically embarrassing. Especially considering Ferrari and their resources.

Our pick for today's race is an easy one. Sebastian Vettel should take the win, and most likely the championship.

So enjoy! The Formula One F1 2012 United States Grand Prix GP is about to begin!
