Formula 1 is set to stay in Miami for the long haul. 

Miami Grand Prix organizers announced a host of changes and improvements as it prepares for its second iteration on May 7.

  • A permanent 190,000-square-foot Paddock Club hospitality building has been built atop the team pit garages, overlooking the pit lane and starting line. 
  • The three-tiered building will include room for 6,000 guests, luxury suites, and a rooftop club.
  • Team paddock areas and hospitality units, where drivers will stay throughout the race weekend, will be on the field where the Miami Dolphins play.

The 3.36-mile track surface, which goes around Hard Rock Stadium, will be repaved to improve grip levels in the hopes of allowing for more overtakes and excitement. 

Organizers are also upgrading certain fan areas, including the “marina,” where real yachts were parked on fake water during the 2022 race.

No Race to Replace China

Formula 1 also announced that it will not add an event to replace the Chinese Grand Prix in 2023.

The Shanghai-based race was on the original calendar for this year but was removed due to uncertainty around travel and event restrictions as part of the nation’s zero-COVID policy.

Portugal and other locations emerged as a potential replacement, but F1 elected to make no further changes and keep the calendar to 23 races, the same number as last year.
