Austin powers back into F1 this weekend with the 2nd USA Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) over in Texas.  After the first race at COTA last year everyone is looking forward to a cracker of a Grand Prix on Sunday.  The COTA circuit is an unusual one as modern circuits go, because it actually did it’s bit to encourage proper racing.

And that’s what we’re after this weekend – the championship is sewn up, Kimi’s up and left to get his back sorted  and there has been a flurry of announcements and plenty of rumour around the driver market for 2014.  So yes, let’s move on and wait until we have some facts yeah?  Meanwhile, here are the 2014 USA Grand Prix TV Times.

It’s only live on Sky this weekend, and the BBC radio coverage is minimal – just qualifying and the race.  Here’s your handy guide.
