F1 mania to hit Miami

F1 mania to hit Miami

The inaugural Miami Grand Prix will be held on Sunday May 8, at the Miami International Autodrome.

The event is the fifth round of the 2022 Formula One World Championship and has drivers excited for its birth.


There are set to be three practice sessions, each lasting one hour.

The first two sessions are set to take place on Friday May 6, with the third set for Saturday the 7th.


Qualifying is due to take place shortly after the final practice session.

It's reported that 80,000 fans will be enjoying the weekend's events as F1-mad support is growing in Miami.


Lewis Hamilton says he's excited to get out on the track for the first time.

The seven-time champion's campaigned for the race to be held there in the past.

"This has been a dream for our sport to be in Miami," Hamilton told Sky Sports.

"We've been here to see other sports.

"But our sport will hopefully earn it's right to be here this week.

"We aim to put on a great show for everyone."

Hamilton finds himself in unfamiliar surrounds off the top of the leader's charts.

He'll be hoping that a new track can supply a much-needed boost to Mercedes campaign.
