The 2022 F1 season continues as all eyes turn to the Miami Grand Prix which will take place at Miami International Autodrome, Florida Monday, May 9 at 5:30 a.m. AEST. The Roar contains all the information you need to prepare for a weekend of high-speed excitement.

This is the first Miami Grand Prix and F1 has certainly pulled out all the stops to create an unforgettable race and experience.


The course itself is just over 5.4km and consists of 19 bends and two long high-speed straights. On these sections, drivers are expected to reach speeds of up to 320 km/h with an average speed of 223 km/h. To put that into context, the fastest track on the F1 calendar is the Monza circuit in Italy where Kimi Raikkonen set the lap record with an average speed of just over 257km/h.

It takes place at the Hard Rock Stadium complex, home of the NFL’s Miami Dolphins. In an attempt to have Monaco meet the Port of Miami vibe, the designers have included a fake marina where the stunning yachts are real but the water has been….wait….painted on the floor.

Despite the odd choice of design features, the course itself excites many riders.

Alfa Romeo driver Valtteri Bottas had the chance to do a few laps on the new track and recently announced that he was planning a real race.

“Actually what’s nice to see is that it looks like a very good track to overtake,” the 10-time Grand Prix winner explained recently.

Leclerc.

Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton has problems with his Mercedes and finds himself in seventh position, almost 60 points from first place.
