The United States GP in Numbers
As part two of the final back-to-back race weekend this year, the United States Grand Prix marked the 19th round of the 2019 season and seventh edition of the event held at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.
For the 15th time this season the team secured a points-paying result – with Checo storming to P10 in what was a stunning drive from the Mexican.
Starting from pit lane, Checo gained a whopping 10 positions in the race – his second-highest of the season, bettered only in September’s Italian Grand Prix .
In what was his 60th race in Formula 1, Lance also made inroads – gaining one position from his grid spot despite a tough afternoon after sustaining early damage to his front wing.
Advancing a net 11 places in Austin as a team, this equals our current record this season – while we’ve now moved forward by more than a century of positions  in 2019 so far.
The single point scored in Austin could also prove pivotal in our Championship campaign, with Checo’s P10 allowing us to overtake Toro Rosso for P6 in the Constructors’ Standings. With two race weekends remaining, everything is still to play for in the midfield!
Completing a total of 423 laps [2,332km] over the weekend, our running at the Circuit of the Americas was extensive to say the least – the third-highest mileage we have completed during a single race weekend in 2019.
Putting this into context, 2,332km is the equivalent of driving from Austin to Toronto in Canada… and then some!
