While Formula 1 and the FIA have yet to formally announce the full 2022 F1 schedule, it was confirmed on Thursday that the Miami Grand Prix in South Florida has made the cut.
The inaugural F1 Miami Grand Prix will be a three-day event, May 6-8, 2022, in Miami Gardens around the Hard Rock Stadium--home of the Miami Dolphins football team--district.
The announcement was made on the official Formula 1 website.
“We’ve worked hard to create a track with great racing and a venue with unparalleled fan experiences,” said Tom Garfinkel, Miami Grand Prix managing partner. “There has been tremendous enthusiasm and anticipation for this event, and we’re happy to be able to announce the date so that people can start planning for it.”
The last major street race in Miami was the Formula E Miami ePrix in 2015 (pictured above).
Construction of the Miami International Autodrome within the Hard Rock Stadium campus is under way, and even organizers this week posted to social media a time-lapse video of progress to the track and race infrastructure.
“There is no doubt in my mind that the Formula 1 community and the sport’s fanbase worldwide are going to be amazed by what they see next May,” said Miami Grand Prix CEO, Richard Cregan.
“The circuit construction is progressing in line with expectations, and now that we have our date confirmed with Formula 1, we can rapidly follow up with revealing more of the detail of the experience that will be enjoyed at the trackside which will make this a truly stand-out addition to the calendar. This location is already well known for creating unforgettable experiences for events like the Super Bowl and Miami Open. We look forward to embracing an entirely new global sporting occasion.”
