I get some serious Sochi vibes. Pancake flat, concrete walls, one never ending turn, the by-now mandatory age long straight follow by a hard braking zone to have an overtaking spot with DRS, and generally underwhelming.
The key difference in my opinion is the distance between overtaking zones. Sochi has two overtaking spots but there are five or six corners between them, meaning chasing drivers struggle to stay close to the car in front from one zone to the next.

This circuit seems to have three or four overtaking spots, with two or three corners in-between. That should be the difference between a decent racetrack and a.. well.. Sochi

Besides, I like the never ending turns when they're flat out. Watching the cars go through in formation, or even side by side, is pretty sweet

I really, REALLY do not want this race to happen.

Every time I look at new posts in this thread I am hoping that it is one that says common sense has prevailed and the whole concept is canceled. Of course common sense and F1 rarely go hand in hand , so I leave the thread disappointed.

Several Miami and Florida officials have voted against it, if that makes you feel any better.

It's clear that in people's minds, they want it back in dazzling Detroit.
Murky Miami is just a decoy.

Detroit is bankrupt, with debts of over S20 billion.... wont ever happen, not even in your dreams. Detroit is now a ghost town, with population down from 1.8 million to less than 700,000, leaving tens of thousands of vacant buildings.

Hosting a GP for tens of millions of dollars wont be on their radar.

Mayor issues veto to try and rescue Miami F1 race


The mayor of Miami-Dade County, Carlos Gimenez, has issued a rare veto in an attempt to help rescue plans for a Formula 1 race in Miami that have come up against local opposition.

The proposed race would be held around Hard Rock Stadium but has been opposed by some residents of Miami Gardens, with Barbara Jordan — county commissioner for Miami Gardens — producing two roadblocks to the event last week. One resolution gives commissioners the power to prohibit road closures related to racing events near or in residential areas, and the other was an ordinance to give Miami Gardens residents a public hearing on races proposed in the Hard Rock Stadium’s district.

Gimenez has now used his mayoral veto as he wants to give opponents more time to try and reach a compromise with Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, who is working to bring the race to Miami. With the first race scheduled for 2021, Giminez is quoted in the Miami Herald as saying it was “premature to attempt to block an event of the magnitude of Formula 1 outright.

“I remain committed to respecting the residents of Miami Gardens, and I remain committed to finding a way to bring this world-class event to our community,” Gimenez added.

The mayoral veto can be overruled if there are nine votes against Gimenez, but with the passing of the road closures resolution currently standing at 8-5 it would need a commissioner who voted against the resolution to switch sides.

F1 had initially targeted a race in downtown Miami but changed its plans due to opposition from businesses and residents, agreeing a deal to race around Hard Rock Stadium in early October.

Bobby Epstein, the chairman of Circuit of The Americas — the current home of the only F1 race in the United States — last weekend claimed the location of the Miami race could be damaging for the sport’s image.

And of course...

I would say that both of them are approving of a race in Miami. You can see it in their eyes!
