Ahead of Formula 1’s first-ever Miami Grand Prix next year, the promoters of the race have released a simulated onboard lap around the new Hard Rock Stadium Circuit.

Last week F1 confirmed the inclusion of a second grand prix in the United States for the 2022 season as part of a 10-year deal to hold a race in Miami following a number of delays to the project.

While an official date is yet to be confirmed for the inaugural Miami Grand Prix, the race is set to be held in the second quarter of 2022, according to F1 CEO and president Stefano Domenicali.

A brand new 5.41-kilometre track is being built in Miami Gardens that will run around the Hard Rock Stadium, home of the Miami Dolphins NFL franchise.

The anti-clockwise layout will feature 19 turns and have up to three DRS zones, allowing for top speeds of around 320kph (199mph).

Miami Grand Prix managing partner Tom Garfinkel said the “first priority was creating a great racing circuit for the drivers, for the fans, with multiple passing opportunities.

“We want to create an environment where people are blown away when they get there, and I think starting with sort of a blank sheet of paper, to design a circuit with the designers and F1 and the FIA that has a lot of passing opportunities,” he added.

"There’s going to be vistas really from the stadium which sits at the centre of the circuit, you can walk around the top deck of the stadium and see every turn on the race track, a pretty unique opportunity.

“The infrastructure we have in place, the club spaces, the things we can take advantage of in and around the campus, it’s going to be beautiful.”

You can check out the simulated on-board lap of the new venue featuring a 2022-spec F1 car using the Assetto Corsa game below.
