USA, Indianapolis - September 28nd - 30th - 2001

About the USA GP

Last year Formula One made its much-anticipated return to the United States, and it was successful. The biggest ever crowd in Grand prix history turned up to see the event, which was run on part of the hallowed Indianapolis circuit and a new purpose-built, infield section. The racing was not what US fans are used to seeing, particularly when Mika Hakkinen retired, robbing the race of a great battle between the Finn and Michael Schumacher. The real success of the race will become evident this year when the sales of tickets begin, and organisers will be hoping most of those present in 2000 weren’t there for the novelty of the event.


Teams are presented with a tricky set-up conundrum at Indy. The mix of twisty infield and the super-quick banked turn into pit straight call for a compromise. Low to medium Downforce settings are likely for this year’s race.
