Last season, MotoGP riders highlighted problem areas early in the season and there were still issues when F1 arrived, with Hamilton describing the track surface as the “bumpiest track he’d ever been on” after the 2019 practice sessions.
It was suggested that F1 had demanded a solution before extending the circuit’s hosting deal, that has previously been denied by founding partner Bobby Epstein.
“The United States Grand Prix has become one of the biggest and greatest events in the world,” he said. “We are extremely proud it has found a home in Texas – at Circuit of The Americas – and are grateful to the millions of fans who visited us over our first decade.
“We knew Austin, along with our neighbours in San Antonio and beyond, would be welcoming hosts – and they proved it. Thanks to everyone in the Formula 1 community for supporting our endeavours and rewarding our hard work. We are glad to have renewed our commitments and look forward to many more years of World Championship racing, entertainment, and fun.”
