Bottas wins USGP from pole for another Mercedes 1-2
  Hamilton locks up 6th title in 2nd
Valtteri Bottas took his 4th win of the 2019 F1 season leading the USGP most of the way in his #77 Mercedes.  Bottas was 4.1 seconds ahead of his Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton in 2nd, but that was enough for Hamilton to lock up his 6th F1 title. He is so blessed to have been driving the best car in F1 for 5 straight years. Max Verstappen finished 1-second behind Hamilton in third for Red Bull.

Bottas nips Vettel for USGP pole
  In close qualifying session
Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas, trying to keep his championship hopes alive, won the pole position for the USGP by only 0.012s over the Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel and 0.067s over the Red Bull of Max Verstappen. Bottas has to win tomorrow to keep any chance of winning the championship alive, and hope Hamilton finishes way down the pack... It seemed so unlikely, but now, not so much. Charles Leclerc and Lewis Hamilton rounded out the top-5 in the 2nd Ferrari and Mercedes respectively.

F1's 2021 rules finally approved
  F1 cars will resemble IndyCars
Formula 1's technical, sporting and financial regulations for the championships’ 2021 overhaul will go ahead as planned in 2021 following approval from the teams morning in Austin, with formal confirmation being made public on Thursday in a bid to improve the on-track spectacle and create closer, more competitive racing.
USGP F1 race Preview
  At Circuit of the Americas
The F1 teams cross the border for the final leg of the last back-to-back of the season, as they go Stateside to Texas for Round 19 of the FIA Formula One World Championship. Austin’s popular Circuit of the Americas is a favorite amongst drivers and fans, not least due to its lively off-track atmosphere. Contrast best describes a lap around COTA. It is a counter-clockwise circuit – one of only five on the 22-race Formula One calendar, joining Azerbaijan, Singapore, Brazil and Abu Dhabi. Just 14 percent of a lap around COTA is spent under braking, with drivers at full throttle for nearly 60 percent of their lap.

Hamilton nurses tires to easy Mexican GP win
  Vettel holds off Bottas for 2nd
Using an earlier pitstop on Ferrari to undercut Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, Lewis Hamilton nursed his hard Pirelli tires for over 40 laps and comfortably won the Mexican GP over Vettel and his Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas. Charles Leclerc took a two-stop strategy to a 4th place finish, which would have been better had his pit crew not blotched his 2nd stop. Alex Albon came home 5th for Red Bull while Max Verstappen blew lap 1, went off course in a tussle with Hamilton, then suffered a flat tire in a tussle with Bottas and his right rear tire separated from the rim.

Verstappen stripped of pole for Mexican GP
  Ferraris to start 1-2
Max Verstappen has been stripped of pole position for failing to slow sufficiently for a yellow flag in the wake of Valtteri Bottas’ crash during qualifying in Mexico, with Charles Leclerc promoted to top spot and Sebastian Vettel 2nd. Verstappen, already on provisional pole, improved on his effort and set a purple time through the final sector, in which a single yellow flag was shown due to Bottas’ crash moments beforehand. Car 5 - Sebastian Vettel reduced speed significantly as per the regulations.
