The appointment with the great innovations planned for the 2022 Formula 1 season is getting closer and closer: in addition to the technical regulation changes, which are awaited with the great interest and curiosity by fans, there is also excitement for a new event on the 2022 Formula 1 calendar, that will record the largest number of race weekends with 23 races. These include in particular the debut of the Miami Grand Prix, scheduled to take place on May 6 to 8 at the new city circuit located near the Hard Rock Stadium. Speaking of the United States event, the official Twitter account of the race organizers recently published some images that testify to the state of the track construction process, as the circuit is ready to welcome the most important racing series in the symbolic city of Florida.
Since the tweet, however, fans around the world – mostly Americans – have literally been divided over the new GP, with personal opinions and considerations, generating the classic pros and cons: there are those who can’t wait to finally see racing the single-seaters on a track located a few steps from the coast, and there are also numerous comments of fans opposed to F1 in Miami, who did not spare strong and decisive terms on various issues. Among the most emblematic supporters of the first group there is a video that captures a child intent on drawing the layout of the track and other potentials by hand, which is echoed by appreciation of the spectacle that the Formula 1 Grand Prix will offer. However, still within this clip, there was no lack of subtle protests from parents regarding the limited number of tickets available. In this regard, moreover, other controversies, this time even bigger, have been added on the excessive price of tickets, considered too high by people intending to go to the stands of the Miami International Autodrome.
Going into more detail on the technical issues, however, several users stressed the risk of a potentially dangerous track for the drivers, comparing it to the Saudi Arabian one in Jeddah. In other cases, finally, there is the disappointment of having missed the great opportunity to present Miami as the ‘Monte Carlo of the United States’; this not only for the characteristics of the circuit, but also for the distance of the stands from the track which would have offered a greater visual impact for the public at home and in the stands.
