On This Day:
The first F1 race at the Circuit of the Americas takes place today!
In 1960 it was the Friday before the 1960 US Grand Prix at Riverside, California, a poorly-publicised race, and only the second world championship race in the US that wasn’t the Indy 500.
Sebastian Vettel took pole for the US Grand Prix, beating Lewis Hamilton by a slim margin. Marussia beat a poor showing from Caterham, who hope to do better tomorrow. Alonso did badly, and will have to fight hard in the race.
Antonio Felix da Costa won the qualifying race at the Macau GP and starts on pole today. Felix Rosenqvist starts second, with Alex Lynn third and Carlos Sainz Jr fourth.
NASCAR sprint cup leader Brad Keselowski starts on the front row for the deciding race after the polesitter Joey Logano got banished to the back of the field.
The US Grand Prix.
The Macau Grand Prix.
The NASCAR Sprint Cup final.
Stat of the Day:
36 poles in 100 races isn’t bad! Well done Sebastian Vettel!a
