Max previews Miami GP: 'Formula 1 is getting much bigger in US'

Published on 04 May 2022 by Niels Hendrix

Max Verstappen is looking forward to the upcoming inaugural Miami Grand Prix. The Dutch Formula 1 world champion says: “I think this weekend is going to be pretty crazy! I’m looking forward to racing in Miami. I’ve driven the track on the simulator and we’ve practiced and prepared as much as we can without visiting the track in real life.”

“I love racing in Austin so it’s fun that we get to go to another state and race this year. It’s exciting to see Formula 1 getting much bigger in the US. Formula 1 and the teams are working hard to promote the sport in the US and we’re having more and more races here, so step by step we are making it more popular. I also think it helps now the cars are finding it easier to follow and overtake each other and more teams are competing for wins. I think that’s the most important thing for the fans.”

Max continues: “I hope that it’s going to be an exciting weekend. Miami is a really nice city and I think it’s a really interesting location to hold a Grand Prix. I think not only the drivers are excited, but the fans too.”
