In recent days Michael Masi, FIA Formula One Race Director and head of the F1 Technical Department, visited the Miami Dolphins venue, home of the NFL football team, around which has been designed the track that will be born in one of the most famous cities in Florida and which will host the Miami GP, in May next year.

There is lots of enthusiasm among the fans, but, despite this, there was no lack of controversy on the look of the circuit, built around the city's Hard Rock Stadium and the Miami Dolphins' NFL stadium. In fact, there were those who feared that it could dangerously resemble a huge parking lot, given the view, but Masi's words remove all doubts.

It is a proper circuit,” - he stated to Motorsport.com, when asked about it -It is far from a race in a car park, considering the level of work that is ongoing there in a number of areas. The facility is coming along really, really well and it will be something unique.”

“It is great, the way they are integrating. I don’t envy them the way they are having to integrate an NFL season between all the work they are doing and compartmentalise the work they are doing at the stadium.

“But I think it is a credit to them. They were doing major work there last week and then had to put everything back to a level for the Dolphins game to happen on the weekend, and start again on the following day. Miami is coming along really well.

Rumors has it that the United States could host a third race in F1. The great numbers at the Austin GP last week showed how well F1 is establishing itself in the USA market as well.

In this regard, McLaren CEO Zak Brown said the Miami GP could be the right business card to make sure to run a third race on the American soil.

“The market could definitely handle a third race,” - he said - “It’s very complicated to put these races together, so the obvious wish list - New York would be great, Las Vegas would be great, any of the big markets, so I hope a third race happens.

“I think this race here in Austin is yet to be secured. I’d like to see that happen, I think it will happen. Miami I think will be the hottest ticket in F1 next year.”
