The Miami Grand Prix started as a dream, but now it is a reality. This event is expected to be considered one of the most luxurious and glamorous of the entire Formula 1 season, in addition to being one of the most anticipated. The event will join the category from the 2022 season and the circuit will be urban, right next to the Hard Rock Stadium, home of the NFL's Miami Dolphins. Currently, the organization of the Miami Grand Prix is already working on this circuit to do so, in addition to making it a semi-permanent circuit. Today it was announced who is in charge of directing the management team of this event, which is nothing more and nothing less than Richard Cregan.
Cregan has a lot of experience in the realization of Formula 1 events, since he was head of the Abu Dhabi and Russian Grand Prix, and now he will be in charge of making the Miami Grand Prix a reality. Likewise, Cregan has experience in a management position within the Toyota Motorsport team where he managed to win seven WRC titles. These were some statements.
“Miami has been a dream destination for Formula 1 for many years and it is a privilege to accept the role of CEO. Working in the most vibrant sports market in the world, the United States, and joining a team anchored by world-class talent in the Miami Dolphins, means that I am understandably excited about the potential of what we can accomplish together when we welcome F1 to Florida in 2022. " Cregan claimed as reported by the media called "motorsportweek."
For his part, Managing Partner Tom Garfinkel has commented that they have absolutely great things to offer teams, drivers, fans and Miami. "The first goal is to have a great race, and we believe we are building a circuit that will offer just that." Tom commented. "We are fortunate to be able to bring in someone with the expertise of Richard [Cregan] to lead a carefully selected team with proven results that create the best racetracks and experiences for the fans."
Likewise, it was announced that several people who are in charge of the management of the Miami Dolphins games will also participate in the preparation of the Grand Prix, for example, Dorie Grogan, Josh Young, Lauren Kelly, among others. Also, we can remember that the Hard Rock Stadium was the home of the Super Bowl LIV halftime show, so we can see different visual attractions throughout the 2022 Miami Grand Prix.
