F1 has grown tremendously in popularity in the United States, largely due to Netflix’s “Drive to Survive” documentary series. The show was picked up for a fifth and sixth season. With this TV deal, we are heading towards F1 potentially having multiple events on the calendar in the United States. There has been a F1 event in Miami, and one is planned for Las Vegas in 2023. Chicago is hosting a NASCAR street race in July, setting the city up to potentially hold a F1 event in the future.
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, Max Verstappen is the favorite to win the US Grand Prix at -240. Lewis Hamilton is second at +550, while Charles Leclerc rounds out the top 3 at +1000.
