The Miami Grand Prix is finally on the calendar after several years of negotiations. The organization confirmed Thursday that the second US weekend of Formula 1 is now in fact on the calendar, the weekend of May 6-8.
The new circuit around Hard Rock Stadium in Miami is the second US Grand Prix on the calendar. The Austin Grand Prix will also continue in 2022, although that race will take place a lot later in the season. On the other hand, the Miami race takes place very early in the season. Remarkably, in the period when the European part of the calendar begins normally. It will be interesting to see how that plays out against the rest of the calendar.
