Originally, plans were focused around a street circuit to be constructed in the downtown Miami area though complaints and protests over pollution, traffic and road closures meant that the idea was eventually scrapped and focus switched to the Hard Rock Stadium grounds.
“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,” Miami Grand Prix CEO, Richard Cregan added.
“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.”
The 2022 race weekend will take place on May 6-8 with ticket options set to be unveiled in the coming weeks.
