We say goodbye to Circuit of the Americas and US Grand Prix weekend today after what has been, I think, the longest run of pictures from a single event that I’ve ever had on this photoblog. I still have many, many images from the weekend that I’ve marked as publishable or which I’ve not yet edited so you’ll no doubt see these in dribs and drabs sometime in the future, though.
As you’ve probably seen in some of the other images from the event, the track is decorated with dramatic red, white and blue stripes. The S curve section (turns 3 to 5) is particularly dramatic and used to sport a collection of large, white stars too but apparently Bernie Ecclestone, Formula 1 supremo, had them painted out for fear of offending advertisers (huh?). This shot was taken from the pedestrian bridge at turn16 and shows one of the marshals walking the track on the morning of Sunday, November 18th – race day.
