Midnight Mass: What To Watch If You Like Mike Flanagan's Netflix Horror Series

  Midnight Mass: What To Watch If You Like Mike Flanagan's Netflix Horror Series Praying for more movies and TV shows like Netflix's Midnight Mass?The story of a family still plagued by traumatic events and spirits from their childhood home (loosely inspired by Shirley Jackson’s novel) and another based on Henry James’ tale of a woman hired to care for two children also surrounded by strange circumstances make up this truly haunting collection of limited series.

Six rounds remain in the 2021 title fight, and Red Bull head to the US Grand Prix desperately in need of an answer to Mercedes.

In a thrilling title battle which has ebbed and flowed between the two rivals, Mercedes struck the latest blow with a dominant display in Turkey.

Valtteri Bottas took the chequered flag comfortably, and were it not for some fierce defence from Sergio Perez and Yuki Tsunoda before, Lewis Hamilton may well have recovered from his 10-place grid drop to a podium spot, or even the win.

What is for certain, Red Bull are concerned over Mercedes’ blistering pace in a straight line, so desperately need a strong showing at the Circuit of the Americas to calm any late-season jitters in their title bids.

Here is everything you need to know ahead of the 2021 United States Grand Prix…

Where does the 2021 US Grand Prix take place?

The Circuit of the Americas (COTA) has been on the Formula 1 calendar for almost a decade, and the 3.426-mile anticlockwise Hermann Tilke-designed circuit was laid out with the intention of using elements from some of the most popular corners from tracks around the world, to effectively create a ‘super-circuit’ in Austin.

Motor racing-F1 drivers praise grippy Istanbul track after 2020 'ice rink'

  Motor racing-F1 drivers praise grippy Istanbul track after 2020 'ice rink' UK-MOTOR-F1-TURKEY-TRACK:Motor racing-F1 drivers praise grippy Istanbul track after 2020 'ice rink'ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Formula One drivers hailed the Istanbul Park circuit's grippier surface on Friday, saying the Turkish Grand Prix track was fun to drive again and very different to last year's wet and slippery "ice rink".

The sweeping Turns 3, 4, 5 and 6 are meant to replicate the famous Maggots and Becketts section at Silverstone, while the long drag around Turns 16, 17 and 18 is meant to be a right-handed replica of Turkey’s infamous Turn 8.

Drivers enjoy the challenge of the flowing circuit with a tricky, technical final sector and, with plenty of elevation change to boot – particularly the uphill slope to the hairpin of Turn 1 – and the track has been treated to iron out some of the bumps which have emerged over time, meaning drivers are likely to be able to push harder this year.

With that combination, it’s hardly surprising that Austin has become a staple destination in Formula 1, and plenty of other series too.

MotoGP, IndyCar, Endurance racing, GT3 and NASCAR are all among the machines to take to COTA, making it a versatile motorsport venue all year round.

Where can I watch the 2021 US Grand Prix?

For UK viewers, every session, from the start of FP1 to the end of the race, can be found on pay-TV broadcaster Sky Sports. A live stream of their coverage can also be accessed via Now TV.

This weekend will see the ninth running of the United States Grand Prix at COTA, which has proven to be a popular addition to the Formula 1 calendar since its introduction.

It has very much been a Hamilton stronghold for most of that time, too, with the Brit having won five of the eight editions of the race held in Austin.

However, Finland has given us the last two winners of the race, with Kimi Raikkonen and Bottas having taken top honours in 2018 and 2019 respectively.

Tyre choices for the 2021 US Grand Prix

As was the case at the Turkish Grand Prix, Pirelli are bringing the three compounds in the middle of their range to Austin: the C2, C3 and C4 tyres.

This will make the C2 the hard compound, the C3 and medium and the C4 as the soft on a track with varying demands sector by sector.
