After nearly 70 years of trying, Formula 1 has finally cracked the American market.

The championship is enjoying an unprecedented surge in popularity in the 50 states of the union, with Netflix's Drive to Survive a key reason behind the surge.

Nearly 400,000 turned up 12 months ago when F1 returned after missing the US in 2020, with Max Verstappen putting in one of the best performances of his career to fend off a late charge from then title rival Lewis Hamilton.

This year, Verstappen will head to the Circuit of the Americas already confirmed as champion thanks to the rules quirk that awarded full points in the wet Japanese Grand Prix.

His Red Bull team can also secure the Constructors' Championship for the first time since 2013 - needing to out-score Ferrari by 17 points to be sure of their fifth title.

The full schedule for the 2022 F1 United States Grand Prix is below - with the 56 lap race due to start at 20:00pm BST, 21:00 CET. It is a 14:00pm local time start in Texas.
