Formula 1 will return to American soil in 2022 with a Grand Prix race at Miami.
FOX’s Dagen McDowell has this week’s “FOX in the Fast Lane”:
We’re starting to get real details on Formula 1’s return to the United States. The Trump administration on Tuesday announced it had reached an agreement to host a race at Homestead-Miami Speedway in 2022. That would join two existing tracks in Atlanta and New Jersey as well as Montreal’s Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, which has hosted events since 2000. The deal was announced by Vice President Mike Pence and promoter Jay Frye at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach.
The Miami race is the second of the 2021-22 seasons on the Formula 1 schedule. It will follow a run at next year’s Russian Grand Prix at Sochi. The season will end with another round in Abu Dhabi and will have 22 races on the calendar for the first time.
Formula 1 will return to the United States for the first time since 2007 with two races: Daytona (May 14, 2017) and Austin (May 27, 2018).
