The Formula 1 World Championship comes to the Americas for the double round of Austin-Mexico City. It begins in Texas that is currently being hit by bad weather with heavy rain which also struck the track that is the setting for the eighteenth grand prix.
It will not be an easy weekend for Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari that are calling for a real miracle to open the title. From what we hear from inside the team there is a strong tension in the air due to the many errors made during the season by both the driver and by the team itself. It would be opportune to begin thinking about 2019 and President John Elkann is responsible for reorganizing team, without striking technical revolutions.
Ferrari has shown on a few occasions that it has built a competitive car whose results have been limited by mistakes that have compromised the season. Sebastian Vettel must show that he is a World Champion. Everything can happen but he must be able to get back up again.
It will be an interesting weekend on the front of the second ranked teams with an open battle between Haas-Renault for fourth place in the Constructors’ ladder and Sauber-Toro Rosso for eighth place. In the last four rounds Racing Point Force India will to try overtake McLaren for sixth place.
As we told you in recent days (http://www.minardi.it/f1-gran-premio-damerica-il-weekend-delle-prime-volte-con-gian-carlo-minardi/), with Gabriele Tredozi and Pierluigi Martini the United States Grand Prix represents a crucial point in the results of the Minardi Team and have become part of our history. I took a lot of pleasure in reliving these events with you.
