So what’s this new track like then? After driving the course Sebastian Vettel gave it the thumbs up, saying: “The circuit is great. One section is a bit like Montreal with a long fast straight but it’s also quite up and down, which is a bit like Spa.
“New York is such a great city with a great energy. It will be great to have a Formula One race here—I think there will be some good bars to go to after the race!”
In an official statement Leo Hindery, GP of America promoter, said: “Sebastian got a very small taste of what racing around the Port Imperial course will be like but there’s no substitute for when he’ll be driving at just over 200 miles an hour.”
For now we only have a few still pictures and words, but hopefully a video of the course will be available soon.
