Formula One is heading to Miami in 2022.
The FIA announced the addition of Miami to the F1 schedule starting in 2022 but a date has not been finalized. The circuit will be set up at the Hard Rock Stadium (home of the Miami Dolphins) complex and is part of a ten-year contract to host a Grand Prix in South Beach.
The Miami Grand Prix will likely be the second U.S. F1 race in 2022, the U.S. Grand Prix at C.O.T.A. has not been finalized for next season, and is an attempt by the FIA to branch out in the United States.
