We have reported that Liberty Media is holding fire on publishing the 2019 calendar because of the extended negotiations about a race in the Florida capital.

They're moving the race to Tallahassee?

Given F1's history (see: Swiss GP of Dijon, San Marino GP of Imola, Luxembourg GP of the Nurburgring), I could entirely believe a "American Grand Prix of Miami" being held 5 miles out from Tallahassee for political reasons!

Looks like a non-starter now for 2019 - no surprise as they must be close to having to finalise the calendar

In Arizona, Phoenix is the capital and the largest, too large, bet on water shortages not too far off. My sister lives in Indiana, Indy is the capital and the largest city.

I think Jericoke is referring to a country's major capital city, not a state?  (in other words, Scotland > Edinburgh, England > London, France > Paris etc).

But ... then again, I could be talking utter waffle???

Best Regards,
Cal :)


Cept Glasgow is way bigger than Edinburgh, Calman so your just proving Jeri's rule.  ;) :D  :tease:

From bad to worse - it seems Liberty wanted the Miami race (aka The Slumber by the Sea) to replace Germany:

Just shows that like Bernie, Liberty has no respect for traditional venues. Hockenheim and the New 'Ring are both far better tracks than anything Miami could produce.

That's no doubt true but no one in Germany is really prepared to bankroll cost of F1 races.

Due to EU rules they can't offer Germany much different terms to all the other tracks in Europe even if they wanted too.

Miami and HardRock Stadium have apparently reached a preliminary agreement to run a circuit around the stadium. There is still fairly heavy opposition, but this may have legs this time. As you might expect, the layout is pretty uninspiring.

I don't think this will get city approval, as I've seen little effort to sort out the full range of objections locals provided. (If it weren't for that, I'd say it was a certain addition to 2021 - and not really looking forward to "Las Vegas Part II").

I wonder if anybody has told Liberty that there is a fantastic, world class track (and former F1 USGP venue) just a couple of hours away from Miami. They could still badge it the Grand Prix of Miami.



Can anybody think of another F1 race where the P1 & P2 drivers later became constructors?  ;)

Totally agree Ali - at the end of the day the race is still proposed for Miami (and the residents who object) wherever they plonk the track. Let's see what 28th October brings which is I believe the meeting date.

Well, after all these years, a Miami GP is apparently back on the table. The City Council has approved the Hard Rock stadium parking lot course. Which classic course will it replace?

Possibly Canada, Lonny. Noises abound about Liberty demanding a $6m race fee even if no spectators are present at this year's race.

For context - last year Liberty offered to pay the same to organisers to stage GP at track without income from spectators - allegedly.
