The 11th most populous city in the US and the capital of the USA's second largest state of Texas, Austin has forged a reputation as a modern, forward-thinking city in recent years. Popular for its food, culture, shopping and business attractions, Austin has quickly establised itself as a welcome stop on the F1 tour. HISTORY F1 has had a long and divisive relationship with the United States over the decades, with ten different venues being used to host a race on American soil since 1959, even if only six have held the United States Grand Prix moniker. Beginning with single year endeavours to Sebring and Riverside in 1959 and 1960, the US GP established its spiritual home at Watkins Glen between 1961 and 1980, before financial difficulties saw it dropped from the schedule. Shortlived races in Long Beach, Las Vegas, Detroit and Dallas filled the void between 1976 and 1988 (albeit not under alternative names), before the United States Grand Prix returned in 1989 in Phoenix, Arizona. Canned again in 1991, it wasn't until 2000 that F1 returned to the US at the iconic Indianapolis Speedway. Despite use of its famous banking, the circuit wasn't well-received, and though it remained a fixture until 2007, popularity had waned by the time of its cancellation, particularly after the farcical 2005 race in which just six cars started. Undeterred, F1 embarked on the new chapter in 2012 at the purpose-built Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, which has so far proven popular with drivers and fans.
