Formula 1 has signed a deal for a second race in America. In 2022, the Circus will return to Florida with an all-new Grand Prix in Miami. The race, the first in the US state since 1959, will be held at the Hard Rock Stadium complex in Miami Gardens, home to the famous NFL Miami Dolphins.
Although the exact date of the race has yet to be confirmed, it is already clear that it is a 10-year deal. The circuit is 5.41 kilometers long with 19 laps, three strait and three DRS zones. The maximum rated speed is 320 kilometers per hour. Hard Rock Stadium will be at the center of the ring. The circuit is designed to encourage close-quarters racing while meeting the highest safety standards.
Miami will be the 11th location where Formula 1 has been racing in the United States since the tournament began in 1950. Miami is a good addition after Indianapolis, Sebring, Riverside, Watkins Glen, Long Beach, Las Vegas, Detroit, Dallas, Phoenix and the Circuit of the Americas in Austin. Formula 1 has been searching for a second location in the US for a long time, but plans in Miami have fallen behind in recent years. The first plans date back to 2017 when there was still talk of a downtown race.
