The Miami Grand Prix kicks off the 2022 Formula One season this weekend. Below is all the information you need to know about the race’s schedule on Sunday.
The Miami International Autodrome is hosting F1’s first race in Florida in 63 years.
Red Bull arrives in good form, having scored 58 points out of a possible 59 points throughout the Emilia Romagna GP weekend, which took place on Ferrari’s home turf.
However, following a strong beginning of the season, Charles Leclerc and Ferrari are still leading the Drivers’ and Constructors’ World Championships.
With the venue hosting its first-ever Grand Prix weekend, the race in Miami is expected to be surprising.
