Max Verstappen confirmed his 2022 drivers’ title with victory in Japan, his 12th win of the season. But can he now break the record for most wins in a single season? To do so, he needs to win two more rounds of the remaining four.
The US Grand Prix in Austin will be a good chance for him to continue his run as Formula 1 returns to North America for another continental double-header, with the Mexican Grand Prix next week.
It is the second race of 2022 in the United States, after May’s Miami Grand Prix.

What TV channel is it on?
Sky Sports F1 have almost exclusive rights to live coverage in the UK this year and indeed for the next few with their usual excellent team.
Sky’s qualification program starts at 22.00 Saturday with their race coverage at 18.30 on Sundays.
Channel 4 has also expanded coverage of highlights this year. We don’t yet know the exact air times for their programs, but given the late starts, it’s fair to assume that their qualifying program will be on early Sunday morning with their race highlights late in the day on Sunday.
What do we know about The Circuit of the Americas?
- Circuit length: 5,513 km
- First Grand Prix: 2012
- laps: 56
- Race distance: 308,405 km
- Lap record: 1:36.169 (Charles Leclerc, 2019)
- 2021 winner: Max Verstappen, Red Bull Racing
- Number of corners: 20
- Overtaking chances: One of the year’s best places to overtake. The run straight down the pit and up the hill into the hairpin turn is a very good place. The second best is the run between turns 11 and 12, aided by DRS. There are a few other fairly heavy braking zones, but they are a bit more risky.

- Max Verstappen 2/5
- Charles Leclerc 4/1
- Sergio Perez 9/1
- Lewis Hamilton 12/1
- Carlos Sainz 16/1
