USGP Tidbits

1908-1916: Called the United States Grand Prize. 1910: The longest USGP at 415.2 miles. 1912: Two time defending champion, David Bruce-Brown, is killed while practicing at Milwaukee. 1916: Winning speed is virtually identical to the first Long Beach winner -- sixty years later. 1960-1968: British drivers win nine consecutive USGP. 1971: The long course is built at Watkins Glen, expanding the track length from 2.3 miles to 3.377 miles. 1975: Niki Lauda becomes first driver to win the USGP and World Driving Championship in the same year. It has happened 10 other times: 1976, 1980, 1988-1991, 2000, 2003-2004, and 2013. 1977: Mario Andretti becomes the first and only American driver to win a USGP in the modern World Driving Championship era. 1991: Ayrton Senna wins his fifth USGP, more than any other driver until Michael Schumacher wins five. 2000: The USGP returns after a nine year gap in front of perhaps the largest crowd in F1 history. 2002: Michael Schumacher slows down to apparently allow Rubens Barrichello to take the win by just .011 seconds. 2005: All of the teams using Michelin tires chose not to start the race due to Michelin's concern for safety of their tire. 2006: Michael Schumacher becomes first driver to win USGP four consecutive times. 2012: The USGP returns after a five year gap at a facility built specifically for F1.
