Red Bull celebrate their constructors’ championship win, F1 discovers its new home in the USA and more Tweets from the United States Grand Prix weekend.



The drivers had their first chance to drive the new track on Friday. Sebastian Vettel overcame a water pump failure in second practice to top the times sheets in both sessions.


Vettel continued his dominance with a faultless pole lap while Alonso struggled to ninth place. Jenson Button retired from qualifying after a mechanical failure in Q2.


Race day at the Circuit of the Americas got off to a controversial start as Ferrari announced they would deliberately incur a gearbox change penalty on Felipe Massa’s car, sending him back five places on the grid but moving Alonso up one. Lewis Hamilton narrowly beat Vettel in the race after the Red Bull driver lost momentum while lapping Narain Karthikeyan.
