How excited are you about the USGP now that it's 3 days away, a new track that looks great, plus the championship still undecided? Also it's Hamilton's penultimate race for McLaren, and Schumi's penultimate race in F1.

So much of a chance to make or break interest in F1 in the U.S. also.

On the other hand they've brought hard tires and it might not be very warm, and the track is completely green with lots of runoff.

I'm actually already a bit nervous thinking about the 1st corner after just reading Button's take on 'second being better than pole'. An incident seems almost inevitable.

On a scale of Valencia to Suzuka, I'm about a Spa/Silverstone.

Penultimate race of the season, I am normally very excited by this time. The track is very nice and should give us some juicy moments.

This track has the best of the circuits from Japan, Turkey, Silverstone, India, Bahrain and elevations from SPA. in theory it should be excellent, i just hope it is not too good (of a track) for its own sake.

Keen to see it in action, i think this will be a drivers track.

this about sums it up....

considering some of the bore fests, then a new track designed with no compromise should at least offer plenty of overtaking opportunities ....shouldn't it ?!?!?

I find myself very interested and excited. For the last few years I even doubted if they could pull it off, build a track with all the shenanigans going on. And even just a month ago I was quite disinterested. But in the last couple of weeks I've seen pictures and videos of the track, and I'm really stoked for this one. It appears that Tilke has built a wonderful track, a true challenge for the drivers, with the potential to become one of the premier tracks anywhere.

And like icing on the cake, oh joy of joys, the race is going to happen early in the afternoon for me. For almost every race this season I've either been up very early Sunday morning, or up very, very late Saturday night.

After seeing the track in Friday practice, I am very excited. This looks like a "happening" track with that uphill turn 1, a long pseudo-straight, the skiddy turn 19 etc. Should be an eventful race.

I guess you could say i'm "Ridiculous excited".

With Kimi not challenging for WDC and still having 3rd place quite securely i can relax and follow how WDC fight unfolds. Videos and pictures i have seen about the track have looked amazing, really like it.

I wasn't crazy about the stadium section when just looking at the layout of the track, but after seeing some of the aerial shots during FP2 today I love it.
