F1 Drivers Think Miami Won’t Be Good For Racing

Miami has been one of the most hyped F1 races ever but now that the on-track action has got underway, drivers aren’t all too optimistic. Both Friday practice sessions saw plenty of spins and big moments due to poor grip off-track.

Here’s what some of the drivers said after the first day of track action.

Lando Norris: “In FP2 it started better but then as soon as there was a little bit of marbles, it was terrible. It’s not going to be great for racing.

“It’s like one line you’ve got to stick to and that’s it. It’s restricting, you can’t do many differences compared to other people, so it limits you a little bit.”

Lewis Hamilton: “You think that people in this day and age should be able to make a flat road relatively easy.

“I don’t know if they will be able to grind that at night and improve it.”

Sergio Perez: “It’s really disappointing that there’s no grip off-line, racing will be bad because of that.

“As soon as you go off-line, there is no grip, it’s done. It’s sometimes wet on that side and sometimes off-line it feels very gravelly, so racing will be hard.”

Do you think Miami will provide a good race? Let us know in the comments.

  • I wonder if its the limestone they use in the asphalt in FL. Shouldn’t be any different than Sebring.

      Idk, I wonder if that top layer of track coming up is normal for a brand new tarmac and literally no one else is racing so the off line parts aren’t worn in. I could be chatting shit but it makes sense that because nobody’s drove it it’s not worn in. I think F1 would of benefitted from having F2 this weekend.

        The W series is there this weekend as is the The Weathertech GT3 Cup series. And yes, they did use an FL limestone mix in the track.

        • Yes, limestone is plentiful in FL and its a big local industry so its important to support it but if this is the issue then someone should have known about it. Seems too simple to be the problem however.

    Jewelry boy has to have some excuse for being how far down on the grid? Maybe he will come to the track in a dress for race day.

    • He is wearing a nurse outfit today. Maybe for Mother’s Day?

      He said he doesn’t know if they can grind it down?? Seriously? Stick to driving.
