Formula One officials have announced the Miami Grand Prix will take place for the first time in 2022.

MIAMI – Formula One officials announced on Sunday that the Miami Grand Prix would join the calendar in 2022.

The race – the first Formula One event to be held in Florida since 1959 – will be held on a track layout at the Hard Rock Stadium complex, home to the Miami Dolphins NFL franchise.

The exact date has not yet been confirmed, but Formula One President Stefano Domenicali said he expects the first race of the 10-year deal to take place in the second quarter of 2022.

“We are thrilled to announce that Formula One will be racing in Miami beginning in 2022,” said Domenicali.

“The USA is a key growth market for us, and we are greatly encouraged by our growing reach in the U.S. which will be further supported by this exciting second race. We will be working closely with the team from Hard Rock Stadium and the FIA to ensure the circuit delivers exciting racing but also leaves a positive and lasting contribution to the people in the local community.”

“We are grateful to our fans, the Miami Gardens elected officials and the local tourism industry for their patience and support throughout this process. We are looking forward to bringing the greatest racing spectacle on the planet to Miami for the first time in our sport’s history.”

The circuit will be 5.41 kilometers (3.36 miles), and will feature 19 corners, three straights and potential for three DRS zones, with an estimated top speed of 320 km/h. Hard Rock Stadium will sit at the heart of the track.

Should the race take place, Miami will be the 11th location Formula One has raced at in the United States since the championship began in 1950, following Indianapolis, Sebring, Riverside, Watkins Glen, Long Beach, Las Vegas, Detroit, Dallas, Phoenix and Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas.
