F1 announced the inclusion of Miami GP in the 2022 season

Organizers of the Formula 1 World Championship announced Sunday that the Miami Grand Prix would be part of the category’s calendar for another ten years, from 2022 onwards.

With this decision, the United States will, from next year, host two main stages of World Motorsport (the other is in Austin, Texas), which has been controlled since 2017 by American conglomerate Liberty Media.

The Miami Grand Prix will take place on a circuit to be built at Miami Gardens, twenty miles north of Florida’s state capital.

Since 2012, the United States has received an F1 race in Austin (the next race will be on October 24 this year), but organizers intend to popularize the category in IndyCar and NASCAR’s country.

Florida’s new circuit will be 5.41 kilometers long and will be built around Hard Rock Stadium, the stadium of the American football team Miami Dolphins, headed by Tom Garfinkle, the local promoter of the Formula 1 Grand Prix.

“Formula 1 and Grand Prix promoters will work closely with the local community to secure discounted tickets for Miami Gardens residents,” the F1 consultant said.

“A program will be launched to benefit local businesses and the community from the benefits of the race,” added the unit, in contrast to the construction of the track, in an effort to gain support from the local community.

In an interview in February, Formula 1 media rights director Ian Holmes told AFP that the sport is experiencing a surge in popularity in the United States, most notably the Netflix documentary series “F1: Driving for Life” (“Drive “Thanks for) for existence”).

Miami will be the 11th US city to host the F1 stage in the United States after Riverside, Sebring, Watkins Glen, Long Beach, Las Vegas, Detroit, Dallas, Phoenix, Indianapolis and Austin.

In 2021, F1 has a record schedule with 23 races.
