DORAL, FL – Organizers of Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix confirmed on Thursday the race will be held from May 6 to 8, 2022 after two years of discussions and debates around this highly anticipated event.
Residents and elected officials of Miami Gardens, where the competition will be celebrated, have been complaining heavily about how this event could negatively impact the streets for noise pollution ever since 2019 when Formula 1 reached a preliminary agreement with Hard Rock Stadium.
But despite protests, Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix will now take place at the Miami International Autodrome located within the Hard Rock Stadium campus.
“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,” said Miami Grand Prix CEO, Richard Cregan.
Hard Rock Stadium, in his words, has been the venue for other “unforgettable experiences” such as the Super Bowl and the Miami Open. “We look forward to embracing an entirely new global sporting occasion,” he added.
For those interested in attending, according to the organizers ticketing and hospitality options would be available soon.
Dates will be distributed like this: On Friday, May 6, practice will be held, while qualifying will take place on Saturday, May 7, and the Grand Prix, on Sunday, May 8.
“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.”
“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 Richard Cregan.
