The penultimate race of the 2012 season will see the Formula One circus roll into Austin for the first time as the hosts of the United States Grand Prix.

At an estimated cost of around $350 million, the Austin Grand Prix has had its problems.

Formula One has not returned to the States since the Indianapolis event was dropped from the calendar after the 2007 race.
