The Circuit of the Americas has released a video of the first lap driven by a Formula One car at the finished track.

Jerome d'Ambrosio drove a Renault R30 at the official opening at the circuit, offering the first opportunity to see an F1 car in action at the track.

"It's an enjoyable track for a racing driver and also fantastic for the fans as the viewing areas are well placed and there should be plenty of action," d'Ambrosio said. "The first corner is quite special and it will be interesting to see it when people are dicing for position in the race. Austin is also a superb city; it's really going to be something special."

The first race at the circuit outside Austin will take place on November 18 this year.
