United States Grand Prix: The United States Grand Prix, the only Formula One World Championship in America, will take place in Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the eighth consecutive year.

Formula One racing is the most technologically sophisticated and expensive series in motorsports, with drivers competing in more than 15 countries around the world.
