Awesome race!!! So glad to see F1 back in the USA. The track was excellent. Hamilton was the class of the field. Great win.

Great race. I was at Turn 5 and had a great shot of all the cars sweeping through the chicanes. When Hamilton passed Vettel the stands erupted!

Funny that they gave Hamilton a Jenson hat for the podium. Oops!

Awesome race - my first time at F1, and got to be there with two of my brothers.

Lots of sweet cars in the lot. Did you see the old 911 in Gulf colors?

Who's got E90FLY on their plates?

What was the post-race reaction from the American fans?

For those of us watching on tv, it was a pretty exciting one.

The 911 was parked behind the trackside RV area on Saturday. Colors are way off (I have the RAL #'s for the light blue, orange and dark blue for a bicycle I have) but it was still pretty sharp.

Just a great race, far better than Indy and much better than I expected.

Good race and some impressive pit times.
Poor Schumi finishing out his career with the losers at Mercedes (good luck Hamilton).
I wonder if that trophy was the winner of the All-Texas High School Metal Shop contest?

I was there for the race. Best part by far was watching them do practice starts from the front row of the General Admission area at the start/finish line on Saturday. Hardly spent any time at my seats on Friday/Saturday. Sunday was a different story with the crowds. I'm looking forward to going next year.

Spent all three days at the track as well. GA is where it is at, have to see each corner.

The facility exceeded my expectations. Great track, great race. Over 265,000 fans over the three days, huge success. Looking forward to next year!

Very positive review from all fans in attendance.

A loud cheer rang over the grandstands when Lewis overtook Vettel. Everyone could see it building up, he kept getting closer out of the hairpin to use DRS on the long back straight.

Sergio was having a great time all weekend. Very engaged with the fans, especially all the fans that came up from Mexico.

I was also there for the 3-days and thoroughly enjoyed it for my first F1 race.

Our seats were on Turn 15, but we could see Turns 12 - 16, so they were perfect. We were high enough to see the cars doing 200+mph and then full brake to hit turn 12 where there was a lot of overtaking. This technical section of turns 13 - 15 provided great action where overtaking and brake lockups were every few laps.

We did walk around to other sections of the track and the elevation change was impressive. There are not many flat sections to the track. Turns 2-5 look lightening quick! I loved having the F1 cars fly by us at maximum speed down the back straight and then waiting to brake until the last second before turn 12. The five downshifts before turn 12 were cool as shit too!

Very much looking forward to the 2013 F1 race in Austin and the other events there at the COTA facility. The facility was very impressive and I cannot wait to drive it... maybe in March!
