Lewis loves spending time in the USA and also has a strong track record at the Circuit of the Americas, with five wins from the six races it has hosted.
He enjoys the challenge that COTA presents drivers with, but also likes the spectacle of the event itself and the enthusiastic fans who attend.
"They don't make tracks really like they did in the olden days," Lewis explained. "The older circuits that you'd go to, you'd dream of going to, watching the legends drive there.
"So, some of the new tracks aren't really that good but this is one of those that is. It's got great character and from day one when we arrived here, there was a massive crowd that came who I'm sure, at least half of them, probably were new to the sport which was great.
"So, it had the impact it was meant to have, and I think every year it's kind of been growing. Just driving the track is a massive challenge and also you can actually race here.
"You can follow which is one of the downfalls of some of the circuits. I think that's really why I've enjoyed it a lot because I've had the chance to have races here, real races.
"And obviously there is that great sporting heritage here and people are genuinely super enthusiastic about sports, no matter which sport it is.
"And the last race here that we had, the whole spectacle, I think, was probably the best of the whole year, the whole build-up and everything I thought was great. It's great to celebrate the culture wherever you go."
