The Circuit

What You Need To Know

Formula 1 was a welcome addition to the Miami community when it first appeared on the calendar in 2022 and was another feather in the city’s cap in terms of world class sporting events to take place in South Florida.

The circuit is the 11th different track to have hosted a United States Grand Prix, with Watkins Glen currently holding the record for most races held with 20.

The Hard Rock Stadium, which the track winds its way around the outside of, is also the home of the Miami Dolphins NFL franchise.

While Formula 1 in Miami aims to bring excitement and energy on track, it hopes to leave a lasting impactful legacy to the surrounding community off it.

The Miami Gardens Parks and Recreation Department have teamed up with F1 in Schools STEM Program, working with local children from the community to improve youth education in Miami Gardens, while all track action will take place out of school hours.

Fact File: Miami Grand Prix

  • The 5.412 km Miami International Autodrome is the 11th track to host a Grand Prix in the USA - the circuit in Las Vegas is the 12th.

  • The track in Miami ranks high in terms of top speeds achieved comparative with other circuits, with only Monza, the Circuit Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico and the new Las Vegas circuit expected to see higher top speeds this season. Miami together with Baku are amongst the highest circuits for drag sensitivity.

  • This is partly down to the need to optimise the car for the 1.28 km long straight between turns 16 and 17.

  • Ambient temperatures are expected to reach up to, and possibly higher than, 30°C.

  • This is the second highest statistically expected ambient of the year after Qatar, and ahead of Singapore.

  • The positioning of some of the Tecpro barriers, along with rumble strips, has also been altered ahead of the weekend.

  • Off track, the team hospitality units within the paddock have been moved on to the pitch inside Hard Rock Stadium. A new Paddock Club building has also been built.

  • The track is very narrow in places, particularly in the final sector, which increases the chances of Safety Cars and Virtual Safety Cars. Sector one features faster, sweeping turns and the middle sector is a tighter, twisty sections. Sector three is dominated by the long back straight and hairpin at turn 17.

  • The track layout presents a challenge to the car setup with need to have downforce for the fast corners early in the lap (T1 to T8) and especially the twisty T11-T16, but without being draggy on the two very long straights.

  • Good mechanical grip/traction out of low speed is primordial to lap time here as T8, T16, T17 are all low-speed corners leading onto long straight segments.

  • The dark new tarmac, hot ambient and rather abrasive (from jet washed) surface leads to very high tyre temperatures making management a necessary challenge in the race.

Formula 1 simulated 36 different track iterations before settling on the track layout for the inaugural race.

The 5.41km (3.36 miles) layout features 19 corners and three DRS zones and will be dismantled in the weeks after the race to return the Hard Rock site to its everyday appearance.
