The track is a mix of medium to fast corners in the first and second sectors, and slow corners in the third.

STANDINGS: Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton with each having two wins/2nd places stand atop but Bottas by virtue of his fastest lap leads his teammate by one point, 87 to 86. Sebastian Vettel sits a distant third with 52 points. In the constructors championship, Mercedes leads by a wide margin with 173 points followed by Ferrari with 99 points and Red Bull with 64 points.

  • New Season Kick Off Party

    Amity Hall - Between Thompson & Sullivan St

    "Racing is life. Anything before or after is just waiting." Steve McQueen............ It's been a long winter but the F1 gurus have been busy preparing the groundwork for an incredibly competitive season. With radically modified front and rear wings, 2019 promises to be a season where anybody can win. This should be the kind of season we enthusiasts have long been waiting for. With only about four weeks before the kick off of the 2019 season in Australia on March 17th at 1:10am EST, it’s time for us F1 folks to get together, toast the coming season, and also celebrate last year’s world Champion with his fifth world championship. During this great social get together tonight, Circuit by InRoads will once again donate one of Simon Ward’s amazing works of art as a tribute to Lewis Hamilton and a lucky raffle winner will go home with the Hamilton painting. This year’s artwork will be a high quality print on acrylic glass featuring Lewis in his F1 Mercedes (see below). There will be other Circuit by InRoads F1 race oriented items to be raffled, so don't forget to get your raffle tickets early and be sure to ask David about the new Circuit by InRoads travel packages to F1 races around the world and ask Nick about the races he's setting up in June. Please RSVP ASAP so we can give Amity Hall an idea of the number of people expected to attend. This will be a fun evening and we look forward to seeing you there and as with our previous gatherings at Amity Hall there will be Happy Hour Prices and great Hors d'Oeuvres for us to enjoy. -=[ Nick and David ]=-

  • 2018 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix

    Féile [Fay-la]

    Hello F1 Fans, After nine months and a grueling 20 races, the 2018 Formula One season concludes with Round 21, the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. THE TRACK - Formula One's only day/night race is held at the 3.45 mile Yas Marina track that has three distinct sectors. The fast and flowing corners of the first sector ends in a hairpin that gives way to a second sector consisting of two long straights which end in heavy-braking corners. The twisty final sector features a complex of low-speed corners that require good aero grip and balance. The day-night nature of the race presents an interesting technical challenge for the teams because the track temperature drops by as much as 15 degrees when darkness falls. TIRE ALLOCATION - Pirelli will be bringing the three softest tires in the range - Red Supersoft, Purple Ultrasoft and Pink Hypersoft. Can Lewis Hamilton win for the 11th time this year? Or will Valtteri Bottas take his first win of the year? Can Max Verstappen redeem himself and claim his third victory of the season? If you're in the New York City area and looking for some great racing action with other F1 fans, be sure to join us for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to see who will take the checkered flag.
