The Lotus F1 Team was on hand for the official opening of the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. Mario Andretti, 1978 world champion, completed the official first lap. We’ve got a couple of videos for you after the break.
First, we have Lotus test driver, Jerome D’Ambrosio, at the wheel with his commentary of the lap as well. Next is a local news clip filed from the official opening which includes a few words from Andretti and others.
The United States Grand Prix follows the races in India and Abu Dhabi and will be held on 18 November.
