Formula 1 heads to Hard Rock Stadium for Miami Grand Prix for a second time; the race debuted in the 2022 season. Miami GP will be the first of three rounds in the United States on this year’s calendar. Despite the traditional race in Austin and the much-awaited Las Vegas Grand Prix, the Formula 1 event in Miami has a few aces up its sleeve. Although, after the disappointment of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, it is not as difficult as it seems, and here is why.
Miami Grand Prix 2023 track’s features.
The 19-turn lap at Miami International Autodrome resembles Albert Park in Australian Melbourne. However, it doesn’t mean the racing circuit hasn’t its character, which expresses enough between turn 13 and 16 and 14 and 15, where the extra skilling of racing a Formula 1 car is needed. The case is about elevation changes. Thus the chicane in turn 14-15 has an uphill approach, with a crest in the middle, and then drops down on the exit.
Moreover, three straights, three DRS zones, and top speeds of over 340km/h promise a thrilling battle between drivers.
In Miami Grand Prix 2023, the track’s features will play a key role. The last race in Miami met the expectations of Pirelli engineers as the speed and car behavior were predicted, but the situation may change this time.
Moreover, the organizers have had the 5.41 kilometers of track resurfaced for 2023. The previous surface was composed of limestone and granite. Its updated version is an unknown factor.
The F1 cars have also changed since 2022; everything depends on how the track’s surface suits the new vehicles. That will be a thrilling show, if not.
According to the Pirelli predictions, the Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix 2023 will be faster than ever. Moreover, the latest cars will be able to take full advantage of the improved aerodynamics. This way, a mix of high-speed straights and tight turns will deliver plenty of challenge and excitement. That is what we are betting on, but not the only.
The spirit of competition
That is what we lost at Azerbaijan Grand Prix, as it was clear that nothing could stop Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez at the wheel of the head fastest Red Bulls. No one doubts that the Red Bull engineer Adrian Newey’s creation is the best Formula 1 car in the 2023 season, but Miami International Autodrome still has a character. Therefore, claim a victory is available for Aston Martin cars and Mercedes and Ferrari, to take a podium at least.
Thus, we expect brilliant racing from Spaniard Fernando Alonso, who is already optimistic about the Miami GP. Mercedes drivers Lewis Hamilton and Geroge Russell also have a chance, especially Hamilton, who is passionate about this venue.
So, even if safety wins and Red Bulls again will take one-two, the battle for the third position will undoubtedly be thrilling.
Remember the rising tension inside each team as we close to the middle – the time the Formula 1 driver negotiates the contracts for the following season. It directly causes Scuderia Ferrari, Charles Leclerc, and Carlos Sainz. It is significant for them to show the maximal results, even if it is impossible.
The future career of Sergio Perez in Red Bull is still an issue. Despite Max Verstappen making it clear on their excellent relationships with his teammate, Perez’s inner drama and ambitions are still being to be. Looking like trifles, all the above makes sense on Miami Grand Prix 2023.
Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix 2023 schedule.
The forecast won’t surprise you. There will be partly cloudy with no precipitation. However, the average of +30C is still a challenge to the tires. Therefore the choice of compounds is a crucial part of the F1 strategy for race in Miami this weekend. All the bets are on the medium compounds from the middle of the range rather than softer sets.
Will Red Bull hold its leadership? Surely we will know. The rushing in the right strategy, the battle for a third position, and the struggling at the track due to the updated road surface are what we expect to see at the Miami Grand Prix 2023.
