Even if this weekend's U.S. Grand Prix doesn't appeal to you as a sports fan, you might agree the design of F1 cars is something of an art form.

The cars aren't the only art making a debut at the Circuit of the Americas track.

A new mural called "Velocity" by Dallas-based artist Christopher Martin is on display in the 5,000 square foot lounge for VIP clients at the Circuit of the Americas race track.

Martin says the mural represents opening up Austin to the world.

"The whole idea of Formula 1 and Austin coming together in a way, and bringing Austin onto an international scale in a way Texas hasn't seen before,” he said. “I wanted to be so a part of that."

COTA officials say "Velocity" is the largest acrylic-on-acrylic painting in the United States.
