Formula 1 returns to Florida for the first time, in a long time, in 2022. The Miami Grand Prix will be hosted around the Hard Rock Stadium, home of the Miami Dolphins.

Thing is, people were pretty critical on Twitter (shock) when this news dropped. Mainly, critical of the track design itself. So I thought, could I do better? Could YOU do better? Let’s see shall we…

  1. I'm going to be honest, the main problem is probably putting it in a car park in Miami. There's no better way to eliminate all elevation changes. Florida is a flat state. This has to be a promoter thing — there's plenty of great and good existing natural tracks here in the US. Road America and Laguna Seca come to mind. Some of them might need some substantial improvements to properly handle F1 (*cough* Watkins Glen) but there's no real need for a new track. Heck, you want wide open spaces, I remember CART at Cleveland's Burke Lakefront Airport. (Yes, airport. It's not the city's main one, mind you.) I don't know how viable it (or Sebring, which also uses in part an airport) would be these days, but there's creative ways to do these things.

    But when you say it's in a parking lot, I get flashbacks to the Caesar's Palace track. I think they're trying for a Meadowlands vibe, which was an ok track (though probably not viable anymore as they've built a new stadium up there). if you're committed to Florida and a street circuit, why not build one at Walt Disney World? There's already plenty of sweeping roads there, most of which are divided (so one could be a pit straight, others could allow for movement back and forth if desired), parking lots if you must, cloverleaf exits (there's some tight turns for you!). Disney has held races before (the oval they built for the IRL is long closed) and has worked with groups like the NBA on the past.

  2. I know most of yall are not from America but the assetto corsa mod doesn't really have all of the surrounding buildings of Miami. Miami is actually a pretty cool place and it is the closest you're going to get to a Monaco-type deal in America. I think once we see them gear up for the race and first see it on camera you guys will get that personality in a track you're looking for.

  3. As much as I love the idea of F1 coming to America, especially Florida which is within a holiday drive from where I live, I don’t like the idea of the pinnacle of autoracing engineering driving around in a parking lot. I feel like there are definitely better options in the USA, the southern states, and potentially even still better options in Florida.

  4. What's the ****** problem with Road America or Indianapolis GP. I am a huge F1 fan, but I hate they keep building new tracks or street courses when there is amazing race tracks all around the world that even suit current F1 cars and have all the infrastructure needed to host an F1 race. They wanna have a good reputation regarding the environment and then they waste resources for this bull****.

  5. It's an atrocious choice for a Grand Prix circuit. It's in a non-descript suburb, on a non-descript parking lot for a non-descript stadium. You wouldn't even know it was Miami if it weren't in the name of the race. :yawn:

    Weren't there proposals for downtown? That'd be a sight to see.

  6. Tbh as a californian, I wish we'd get an f1 race over here. Maybe at thunderhill? Its also not just in a parking lot. I wanna go to a race really bad but with the ticket cost I can't travel across the country for it

  7. The stadium is located in Miami Gardens near where I live. With the exception of 2 apartment buildings and the Calder Casino and sports hotel next to it, you won't be getting much in aerial shots since the area isn't very… great. Also won't get shots of the city. The area around it is mostly small residential home, strip malls, a sonics and some gas stations.

  8. There are hardly any elevation changes in the whole state of Florida so it would be pretty hard to have them at this race track. My brother, who lives in Florida part of the year, is a bicycle fanatic and he says you can't really get any challenging rides in the entire state because it's so flat.

    As for a Miami GP, I don't know why they bother to even have one USGP, let alone two. Unless they figure they'll be drawing European & South American tourists who happen to be in Florida at the time. The market simply doesn't exist here. It feels like we've been down this road before when they tried to force races in places like Phoenix, Dallas and in the car park at Las Vegas, way back in the 80's. It didn't work then and I don't see how it's going to work now. It amazes me that after all these years the F1 organizers still refuse to accept the obvious fact that you're not going to sell F1 to the American racing public without any American drivers. It is literally unbelievable to me, meaning that I can't believe that these supposedly smart businessmen are that dense. One American driver in a reasonably competitive car will create more interest in F1 than ten USGP's. Nobody is going to be interested in a race with 25 anonymous, faceless guys they've never heard of, and that's what F1 drivers are over here—including Lewis Hamilton. When are they going to wake up to this basic fact?

  9. As a Florida man, the argument about elevation is pointless .Florida is the flattest state in US (I'm not kidding search it up). There is no point in the entire state of Florida where there would be even a meter of elevation change.
