The F1 circuit in Miami will be resurfaced
The organizer of the Miami Grand Prix will address one of the issues raised by Formula 1 drivers before their return to the circuit for the second race of the year.
The Miami International Autodrome will undergo a series of upgrades before the 2023 edition of the Miami Grand Prix, including the replacement of the low-grip track surface. However, the turn 14 and 15 chicane, which has been criticized by drivers, will remain unchanged.
The Miami Grand Prix was added to the Formula 1 calendar last year and took place on a temporary track that used the parking lot and access roads around the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.
The Miami Grand Prix will take place on May 5th-7th this year and the entire 5.4-kilometer track will be repaved by Tilke, a circuit design firm, in order to improve grip levels and increase the chances of overtaking. The inaugural race in 2022 had an average of less than one pass per lap.
Despite the repaving, the slow chicane which was widely criticized by drivers during the inaugural event will remain unchanged. Lewis Hamilton, who compared it to “being in a B&Q car park” will still be there.
In addition to the repaving of the track, a permanent building will be constructed to house Formula 1’s Paddock Club, which will include a rooftop club. The building, which is being built above the pit lane and garages on the main straight, began construction 6 months ago.
The teams’ paddock area will be expanded into the stadium, with the hospitality units being located there. According to design concept images and statements from the Grand Prix’s president, Tyler Epp, the paddock will be situated on top of the grass football field in the stadium. This will be covered with a durable surface or cover to protect the field.
General admission ticket holders with “Campus Pass” will have access to the stadium to view the paddock from the top of the stands. These tickets will be available for purchase starting January 23rd.
