By on Thursday, May 10, 2018

Formula 1 got a green light into holding a Formula 1 Grand Prix race in downtown Miami next season following two meetings of the City of Miami Commissioners and the Economic Development and Tourism Committee (Miami-Dade County) which both took place on Thursday.

“With the unanimous votes at both the City of Miami and Miami-Dade County’s Economic Development and Tourism Committee, we are very pleased to have received preliminary approval towards bringing a Formula 1 Grand Prix to Miami," said Sean Bratches, Managing Director Commercial Operations, Formula 1.

"We recognise that this is only the start of the process and we will immediately get to work with the various community stakeholders, the City of Miami, the Port of Miami, Bayfront Park Management Trust and others, in order to reach a final agreement. Formula 1 in Miami represents a fantastic opportunity to bring the greatest racing spectacle on the planet to one of the world’s most iconic cities, and we are delighted that the journey is underway.”

The exact timing of a Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix would be a matter for further discussion between F1, the FIA and the Miami authorities, but if approved at the next stage with Miami-Dade County officials, we hope at this stage that the inaugural race would take place in October 2019.
