The F1 USA Grand Prix 2012 was victoriously claimed by 27 year-old Brit boy, Lewis Hamilton, as he sped into pole position for Vodafone McLaren Mercedes at the Circuit of Americas in Texas. Closely in tail, Sebastian Vettel, driving for the Red Bull team finished the race in 2nd position only just 0.675 seconds behind the win. What a nail biter! Clearly a great fight till the end by both drivers. With Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso taking 3rd place, the USA GP 2012 also marked a glorious moment for F1 placing all three world champions on the winners’ podium together for the first time.
Hamilton was super happy about this 2012 victory after having won the USA GP back in 2007 when America last held a Grand Prix, not to mention this also being his 21st F1 win in his racing career.
The Marussia F1 Team made a great performance finishing in 19th and 20th position, as well as maintaining their 10th place position in the World Constructors’ Championship!
The beautiful Circuit of Americas also hosted a star studded crowd of Formula 1 racing fans, including the likes of Hollywood celebrities Michael Fassbender, Ron Howard, Matt Le Blanc and Patrick Dempsey, as well as celebrity chef and entrepreneur Gordon Ramsey.
