Change Marks Start of 2013 Formula 1™ Season as Teams Set Their Sights on Return to Texas
The 2013 FIA Formula 1™ World Championship kicks off with the FORMULA 1 ROLEX AUSTRALIAN GRAND PRIX in Melbourne on Sunday, March 17, and drivers, teams and fans are already eagerly anticipating returning to Austin, Texas, for the second annual FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX Nov. 15-17 at the Circuit of The Americas. Circuit correspondent Dan Knutson caught up drivers prepping for the 2013 competition during preseason testing in Barcelona, Spain.
“I am massively excited to go back there!” exclaimed Lewis Hamilton who won last year’s inaugural event. “The race we had last year is one that I will always remember. I will make sure I go back there this year and put the (U.S.) flag back on my helmet, and hope that the car is developed to the point that we can challenge some of the guys at the front.”
