Formula 1 has announced that the brand-new Miami Grand Prix will join the F1 calendar in 2022. The race, which is set to be the first one hosted in Florida since 1959, will be held on a new layout at the Hard Rock Stadium complex in Miami Gardens, home to the NFL’s Miami Dolphins franchise. The 2022 event date, the first race in a 10-year deal, will be announced later.
“We are thrilled to announce that Formula 1 will be racing in Miami beginning in 2022,” F1 President and CEO Stefano Domenicali said. “The USA is a key growth market for us, and we are greatly encouraged by our growing reach in the US, which will be further supported by this exciting second race. We will be working closely with the team from Hard Rock Stadium and the FIA to ensure the circuit delivers exciting racing but also leaves a positive and lasting contribution to the people in the local community.”
Miami will be the 11th location Formula 1 has raced at in the United States since the Championship began in 1950, following Indianapolis, Sebring, Riverside, Watkins Glen, Long Beach, Las Vegas, Detroit, Dallas, Phoenix, and Circuit of the Americas in Austin.
