A full house along the route itself 82,500 spectators on Sunday, large numbers of spectators in front of the TV sets: the GP Miami was a complete success in the USA.
However, one thing is certain: the premier class is growing in the USA. In 2020, an average of 609,000 fans watched, in 2021 it was 949,000. For 2022, Formula 1 reports an average of 1.4 million viewers per GP.
And interest will continue to grow. In 2023 the GP will take place in Las Vegas in November. “Holding a third race in the USA shows the enormous attractiveness and growth of our sport here,” says Formula 1 boss Stefano Domenicali. “In the 24 hours following the official announcement, Wynn’s Las Vegas and Encore Resort received more hotel reservation requests than any other period in their history. Additionally, the announcement generated four times as much social media activity as the announcement of the 2024 Super Bowl in Las Vegas.”
Formula 1 and the USA – it could be a real love story.
