Americans have become true F1 fans |

F1 sports manager Ross Brawn has insisted that American fans have now become true Formula 1 fans with an increase in engagement seen last weekend at the United States Grand Prix.

Formula 1 was back in Austin for the first time since 2019 last weekend (health crisis obliges in 2020) and the least we can say is that the public has responded since the Grand Prix des United States has a sold-out fight this year.

It is true that for several years (since the arrival of F1 in Austin in 2012), we can see a real craze on the part of the American public for the queen discipline, but the Netflix effect – which has already broadcast three seasons from Drive To Survive – certainly played a big part in making Formula 1 so popular in the United States, something Ross Brawn particularly likes.

“We wrapped up a sensational weekend with a sold-out crowd every day, great weather, great atmosphere and great vibes on the track. «  Ross Brawn says in his traditional post-race column.

 » We are now seeing a very strong engagement with American fans. For years F1 was a hobby in America, but now we’re seeing a real increase in engagement. The fans know the drivers, they know the personalities, they know the nuances of F1. « 

“It’s very exciting and I think it shows that F1 can comfortably run two races in the United States – and maybe more – because of the fan passion we have seen this weekend. « 

Next year, the American public will be well served since Formula 1 has already scheduled two dates in the country: the first Miami Grand Prix scheduled for May 6 to 8 and the United States Grand Prix on the Austin track. from October 21 to 23.
