US TV Audiences LOVED The Miami GP As It Breaks 27-Year-Old Record

It looks like the hype around the inaugural Miami GP wasn’t just embraced by those on the ground at the weekend! It turns out that the broadcast on Sunday gathered what was actually the largest US audience for a live F1 in race in DECADES 🤯

According to numbers presented by ESPN, the 2022 Miami Grand Prix was the most-watched live race telecast since – get this – the 1995 Brazilian Grand Prix!! 12 of the 20 drivers on the grid weren’t even born when that race was broadcast 🤣

Coverage of this weekend’s race averaged 2.6 million viewers, peaking at 2.9 million.

It’s not the most-viewed F1 race in the US ever, though. That record still stands with the 2002 Monaco Grand Prix, which was broadcast on ABC with a delay rather than live as it followed the Indianapolis 500 telecast.

That Monaco race had an average of 2.78 million viewers – so it was pretty close!

It’s certainly seriously impressive numbers 👏

  • But but but….it was horrible. The chicane, limestone pavement, football helmets. Stupid Americans don’t know what fun is.

      • Yeah, sarcasm doesn’t go over well in written form does it? I loved all of it and its funny to watch the F1 popular sites and twitter accounts twist themselves into knots trying not to insult it or lose followers. One of the Veloce kids, who I really like, had a hard time. Sadly there isn’t really any American F1 sites or commentators worth reading. Its all Indy and NASCAR.

        Can’t wait till Vegas. The entire strip is the track. That is going to be like 500k people watching from the city itself.
