Another Formula 1 race has come and gone, providing Austin with some respite after three back-to-back weekends of festivals. Beginning on Friday, thousands of local, national, and international spectators convened on the Circuit of The Americas to watch the festivities leading up to Sunday's United States Grand Prix.
Fast cars weren’t the only weekend draw, however, with superstars Justin Timberlake and Stevie Wonder closing out the festivities on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. Last year’s power-punching lineup of Taylor Swift and Usher seemed difficult to top, but when F1 announced Timberlake and Wonder in March of this year, fans were left to wonder if there was anyone the racing organization couldn’t get.
