Formula 1: Miami Grand Prix to race in 2022

The Miami Grand Prix

Formula 1’s switch from June to July this year has brought several alterations to the calendar, but the Miami Grand Prix isn’t one of them.

In fact, the temporary world-class facility at Miami’s David Cannon Stadium will race on 21-22 March 2022 as part of a new single-race calendar.

The extra time between the Miami race and Formula 1’s traditional carnival-weekend run from Nice to Monte Carlo means a showdown between the best-funded teams will be held in the far eastern state of Florida.

From 23-26 July, Formula 1 will have 20 races this year in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Monaco, Great Britain, Canada, Hungary, Russia, Singapore, the United States and Mexico.

Last year’s schedule saw races in Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, Azerbaijan, Sweden, Britain, Belgium, Hungary, Italy, Belgium, Turkey, Poland, Japan, America and Brazil.

The popular street race in Monaco has been replaced by qualifying on Wednesday 13 July for the third season running.

While former circuit owner Jonathan Neale’s The Grand Prix Company is not involved in the race, he and Andy Burgess are the owners of the reserve race for Prodrive.

The British team scored their first points when Marcus Ericsson won in 2017. Prodrive are yet to confirm a reserve race at a venue for the 2020 season.

Brazil will feature on the fourth race on the calendar on 24 September.
