We’re going to Miami… apparently. The boss of the Miami Dolphins and Formula 1’s commercial director have agreed that a race will be run in the future at the Hard Rock Stadium.

The Dolphins’ Tom Garfinkel and F1’s Sean Bratches said: “We are thrilled to announce that Formula One and Hard Rock Stadium have reached an agreement in principle to host the first-ever Formula One Miami Grand Prix at Hard Rock Stadium.

“With an estimated annual impact of more than $400 million and 35,000 room nights, the Formula One Miami Grand Prix will be an economic juggernaut for South Florida each and every year.

“We look forward to bringing the greatest racing spectacle on the planet for the first time to one of the world’s most iconic and glamorous regions,” the pair added.

Writing on Twitter, Garfinkel noted how “the world’s greatest racing has never been to S. Florida”, promising “multiple passing zones” along with clubs and amenities. He added a few rendered images too (pictured above) to give you some idea of the track layout.
