How to follow Miami Grand Prix

Home » How to follow Miami Grand Prix

There will be a sprinkling of stardust for the sixth race of the season, as Formula 1 heads to Florida for the Miami Grand Prix from 3-5 May.

The race weekend sees many of the rich and famous in attendance, as Max Verstappen looks to continue his dominant start to 2024.

The world champion won in China last time out to make it four wins from five this season.

The Miami Grand Prix will also feature the second sprint race of the year, after Verstappen won the first in Shanghai last month.

Last year’s Miami Grand Prix was great for celeb spotters, with Hollywood star Tom Cruise, singer Shakira and SpaceX founder, Tesla CEO and X owner Elon Musk among those who attended.

Before the race, rapper and actor LL Cool J introduced F1 drivers like they were boxers before a big fight.

Verstappen won last year’s race and will be strongly fancied for a repeat this year.

What are the changes to the F1 sprint format?

The first of six sprint weekends this season took place in China last month and the format is slightly different to last year’s events.

Qualifying for the shorter sprint race will now be held on Friday instead of Saturday, following the only practice session of the weekend.

The 100km sprint will then take place as the first track action on Saturday, before main qualifying for the grand prix in its regular slot later in the day.

Sunday’s race remains unchanged.

After Miami, there will also be sprint races in Austria, Austin, Brazil and Qatar.
