This is the circuit:

The Miami International Speedway is located in Miami Gardens, half an hour by car from the well-known Miami Beach. Although it is a practically new circuit, since races have only been held there since 2022, delighting us with its curves on just two occasions.

In the two races prior to this year’s, He always won a Red Bull, which is no surprise. What is surprising is that on both occasions the victory went to Max Verstappen. The Dutchman achieved victory in 2022, but, the following year, he ended up getting only two points, finishing in ninth place. On that occasion, the victory went to Checo Pérez, and the Spanish-speaking podium was completed by the Spanish Fernando Alonso and Carlos Sainz.

One of the most peculiar things that makes this unique Great prize is that its 5.41 km of asphalt are located around one of the most important stadiums in the NFL, Hard Rock Stadium, home stadium of the Miami Dolphins. With 37 years behind it, it is one of the most mystical stadiums in the competition, the site of renowned events such as the Superbowl, which also received an update in 2016 that, together with the layout of the circuit around it, gives it a much more modern.

It has 19 curves, of which 12 are left and 7 are right. In addition, it will have 3 DRS zones. The first is at the finish line, although it is the shortest of all the straights with DRS. The second overtaking zone with this system is between turns 7 and 11, where we find a long straight that, although it has fast curves in between, will surely be one of the points where there will be the most overtaking during the weekend.

Arriving at the end of the route, we find a straight line of more than one km, where the cars reach speeds of over 330 km/h, being the most ideal point to climb positions in the classification. And although the majority of the circuit has open and faster corners, in the second sector these corners become the twistiest, thus requiring good aerodynamic load for said sector.

Favorites:

As in all Grand Prix and seeing that in the last two years those who have managed to win are Red Bull team drivers, the great favorite to win is Max Verstappen. The three-time world champion has been intractable for a few yearsin which almost no one has been able to get him down from first place in most of the races, and he intends to get away from second place as soon as possible to tie what would be his fourth world title.

Another of the great favorites is Carlos Sainz, The Madrid native has had a great world championship and in the last two seasons he is the only driver who does not race for Red Bull who has won a race. Carlos knows that he is in the crosshairs of several teams, since next year he will not continue at Ferrari, one of them is Mercedes, which is still looking for a replacement to replace Lewis Hamilton.

And the other big favorite is Carlos’ teammate, Charles Leclerc. The Monegasque, although he is not having one of his best seasons, wants to vindicate himself and show that Ferrari was not wrong in renewing him. and not renew Carlos Sainz. In addition, he will have to prepare because next year his teammate will be neither more nor less than the seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton. It is clear that Charles does not want to be the second pilot.
