To close out our 2014 U.S. Grand Prix Coverage, we take you behind the scenes of the race, where the international sport gets a Texas twist.

A Ferrari is always a fan favorite in Formula 1, but the 2014 season has been a struggle for the Prancing Horse. 

The grid girls don classic cowboy boots.

F1 fans are met with no shortage of reminders that this race is in Texas.

Red, white and blue stars return to the track, as seen from the COTA tower.

There's something for everyone at F1, we suppose. 

RedBull's Daniel Ricciardo arrives in Texas sporting some awesome new facial hair. 

McLaren's Jenson Button strolls through the paddock. 

Fernando Alonso answers questions, but remains coy about his future. It's not known where he'll drive in 2015 — but it won't be with Ferrari. 

Former Formula 1 driver and Indy 500 champion Juan Pablo Montoya looks pretty relaxed in the paddock.

A 458 Challenge Evo sits in the paddock after the conclusion of Sunday's Ferrari Challenge race.

Fans invade the track after the race, as seen from the pit garages. 

Four-seat, all-wheel drive Ferraris are found everywhere in the paddock and around the track during Formula 1 race weekend. 

When tires aren't being driven, they're being cleaned. 

On a clear day you can see 40 miles in any direction from the iconic tower.

In its third year, Circuit of the Americas is still larger than life. In just one day, one can walk 20,000 footsteps and climb 18 flights of stairs (trust us).
