2019 Miami GP could be on the cards as key vote set

Written by  May 02, 2018

Hopes for a second Formula 1 race in America around the streets of Miami will hinge on a vote by the City Commission next week it has been revealed.

One of Florida's most famed destinations, it has emerged as the most likely destination to go alongside the current United States GP in Austin, Texas on the calendar and could feature as soon as 2019.

The vote will decide whether the city can negotiate a contract with F1 owners Liberty Media, who have made a second American race one of their top priorities.

"We appreciate the community’s interest in hosting an F1 race and look forward to working with local officials and stakeholders to bring this vision to life," commercial director Sean Bratches commented.

"With over half a billion fans worldwide, F1 is the greatest racing spectacle on the planet, and Miami’s status as one of the world’s most iconic and glamorous cities, combined with its robust tourism infrastructure, makes Miami the perfect destination for F1 and its fans."

Eugene Ramirez, the director of communications for the city, added: "Formula One racing has global appeal and so does the City of Miami."

One report in Dutch media has suggested that the race could feature in October and would replace the Azerbaijan GP, with organisers unhappy at the current fee for hosting what has become one of the year's most chaotic races.
