If it were up to Bobby Epstein, the future on the US F1 calendar would have been even more important. The organizer of the United States Grand Prix believes it would be good for the game if a third race were organized in the United States.
Formula 1 recently announced that it will compete in Miami for ten years from 2022, where the Grand Prix will take place for the first time next year. The Miami Dolphins’ American football team’s plans for a race at Hard Rock Stadium were short-lived, but initially met with great criticism. Locals and the government initially disagreed with the F1 weekend in the city due to protests from environmental activists. Meanwhile, a new project has been approved and F1 has officially confirmed the arrival of the Miami Grand Prix.

More species in the United States?
After the news of a race in Miami was confirmed, stories were spread of a possible third Grand Prix in the US. Bobby Epstein said it was a great move. “I think it’s good to have more races for the game in our time zone,” Epstein told AutoWeek. American employers see more opportunities in their country. “I think there are a lot of places where this could work. Las Vegas is on everyone’s list right now and I think it’s good for the game if it’s a reality. “

Miami Grand Prix in 2022
Epstein welcomes the fact that the second race in the US will be on the F1 calendar next year with the Miami Grand Prix and is pleased that the two US Grand Prix will not take place side by side. “The fact that we’re not backing down is good for the game. If F1 had come here on two consecutive weekends, I don’t think the impact would have been that big. “Said Epstein.
US round of contracts
The contract between F1 and Bobby Epstein’s circuit in the US expires later this year. However, the advertiser hopes to be on the circular calendar in the years to come. He took part in the Spanish Grand Prix last weekend, probably to discuss a new deal. “If the amount is right, it will be much easier to get a contract,” predicts Epstein. “We talked about it for a long time. We both want it to happen. This is the best situation to begin with. “
