Inaugural Miami Grand Prix Scheduled For May 8

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Organizers of the Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix have confirmed that the inaugural event will be held on May 6-8, 2022.

As with all rounds of the FIA Formula 1 World Championship, the action will be split across all three days, with practice on Friday, qualifying on Saturday and the Grand Prix on Sunday, together with a host of other action and entertainment throughout the weekend.

“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.”

Construction of the Miami International Autodrome within the Hard Rock Stadium campus has continued since the laying of racing asphalt was completed. In the coming weeks, the range of ticketing and hospitality options will be unveiled. 

“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 Miami Grand Prix CEO Richard Cregan.

“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 Miami Grand Prix will be the second Formula 1 event in the United States. Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas, annually hosts the United States Grand Prix.
