Latest post of the previous page:

I hope it doesn't take place because I'm fed up with F1 targeting cities and forcing the local taxpayer to fund the circus.

I dread it coming to London, and hopefully the hypocrisy of racing in the ULEZ zone will prevent it ever happening.

Isn't June usually wet in Miami? Or is that July?
I can attest as a lifelong South Floridian that the summer months in general are either too damn hot, too damn wet, or both.

as the management now is American, they might push this as the opening round for 2019?

Absolute rubbish. It aint going to happen logistically. We start with the far/ middle East flyaways, ie Australia China Bahrain before heading back to Europe and pseudo Europe (Absurdistan and Russia).... and the US rounds act as schedule filler in the post European bit before Mexico and South America.. Also they wont start with an event that wont even make a late season deadline due to the impending legal issues they know they will face from their bosses. (Their bosses being public whom the city council represent). Miami will be like the many New York proposals which have fizzled out.

I know some people have a negative opinion of Liberty, however I doubt they would sink as low as Jonathan Palmer's Motorsport Vision... whereby all major UK series start and finish at Brands Hatch each year.

Since I'm moving to Florida, I'm starting to like this idea. Miami will only be 2 hours away.

And since when is rain a bad idea for F1? Bring it!

Good luck! I have a friend who used to live there. I've been there many times for work and vacation.

Apparently the City of Miami were sending a possee of their people to the forthcoming Singapore GP on a fact finding mission. (aka taxpayer funded wank)
Anyway the Mayor has had doubts re the trip and cancelled plans for those thinking they were going.
The mayor of Miami-Dade County has intervened to cancel a delegation's fact-finding trip to the Singapore Grand Prix, in a fresh blow to plans for a Miami Formula 1 race.
The Miami Herald reported on Saturday that the delegation of county administrators, including police and fire department chiefs, would travel to Singapore and get first-hand experience of how an F1-standard street race is operated, in a trip costing around $18,000.

But on Tuesday, county mayor Carlos Gimenez - whose son CJ has been lobbying in favour of the race - lifted a self-imposed recusal on the matter and intervened.

In a statement, Gimenez said: "Upon further reflection, I've asked the directors of PortMiami, Miami-Dade police and Miami-Dade fire to cancel their departments' trip and to look for a venue closer to Miami-Dade County."
I guess that last line means take a trip in a Fire/Police vehicle to Austin for the COTA event.

However those going at the invitation of Liberty / F1 are still heading off.
Although the county delegation's trip is off, a group of Miami city officials - including event administrators and Police - will attend the Singapore race as planned at the invitation of F1.

Plans to run the Miami Grand Prix in 2019 were shelved in July, and the next city-level discussion was pushed back until later this month.

October '20 is now the targeted date for the inaugural event.

Plans are still progressing for an F1 Live fan event to be held in Miami on October 17-21. The latest idea is to base it in the city's Bayfront Park area, with an F1 demonstration planned to run along 700 metres of Biscayne Boulevard.

That event, as well as the planned race, continues to face opposition from downtown residents, who are concerned about the noise and disruption they would cause.
If we ever get to see a GP at Miami I will be very surprised.

Two things I now want to see happen

One, this...
And two for Liberty to land the Miami GP as this stadium was originally due to be part of the circuit. So commentators would have a fun time talking about Vettel rear ending Verstappen behind the BangBros stadium.

Classy!

With the downtown plan seemingly in the toilet, the owner of the Miami Dolphins NFL team is now attempting to bring the event to his Hard Rock Stadium complex:
