Everything You Need to Know Before Attending the 2023 Miami Grand Prix

The 2023 Miami Grand Prix is set to take place at Miami International Autodrome on May 5-7. Here’s everything you need to know about attending the F1 race at Hard Rock Stadium.

Formula 1 is returning to the Sunshine State for the second running of the Miami Grand Prix at the newly-built Miami International Autodrome. The new circuit, which was constructed for the inaugural 2022 race, is set out around the Hard Rock Stadium – the home of the Miami Dolphins NFL team, located 25km north of downtown Miami.

Formula 1 has been keen on staging a Grand Prix in Miami ever since Liberty Media’s takeover of the sport in 2017. Despite a number of roadblocks and obstacles, the race was finally confirmed to be joining the calendar in April 2021. It made its debut in May 2022. 

This will be F1’s third visit to Florida. The first was all the way back in 1959, when the United States Grand Prix was held as a round of the World Championship for the first time. The race took place at Sebring International Raceway, famous as the host of the 12 Hours of Sebring. 

With the United States Grand Prix set to take place at Circuit of The Americas later in the year and the new Las Vegas Grand Prix being staged for the first time in November, 2023 is the first time since 1982 that three races have been held in the United States in a single season.

Miami Grand Prix tickets still available

Formula 1 is presently enjoying unprecedented popularity in the United States. Last year, the United States Grand Prix attracted 440,000 fans over the race weekend, making it one of the best-attended Formula 1 races on record.

The inaugural Miami Grand Prix in 2022 had a weekend attendance of over 240,000 and race day broke the record for the largest ever single day crowd at Hard Rock Stadium. It’s common for attendance figures to drop for the second year of an F1 event and that could well be the case at the 2023 Miami Grand Prix. 

While demand for tickets for the 2023 Miami Grand Prix hasn’t been quite as high as in 2022, most ticket categories are either sold out or close to doing so. If you’re yet to secure tickets, a limited number remain available in our ticket shop. VIP ticket packages from F1 Experiences, offering insider access at the 2023 Miami Grand Prix, are also available.

How much will I spend on a trip to the 2023 Miami Grand Prix?

The average cost of 3-day tickets for the 2023 Miami Grand Prix is $1113 USD, making it the second most expensive race of the season to attend. All three races in the United States rank among the top five most expensive to attend in 2023, with Miami second – only the all-new Las Vegas Grand Prix is more expensive. General Admission tickets at the Miami Grand Prix are the most expensive of the season.

We estimate that the average fan will spend $2,475 USD on a trip to the 2023 Miami Grand Prix – including grandstand tickets, accommodation and spending money. Check out our Budget Planner for the lowdown on what you can expect to spend on a trip to the 2023 Miami Grand Prix.

Getting around in Miami at the 2023 Miami Grand Prix

As the Hard Rock Stadium is an established sporting venue, the area was already well-connected by a number of transport links prior to the inaugural Miami Grand Prix. Public transport, shuttle services and taxi are all viable options to get to the Miami Grand Prix on each day of the race weekend. We recommend not driving yourself to the track, as parking spaces are limited and traffic congestion is inevitable.

If you’re staying for longer than just the race weekend, the Metrorail and Metrobus services are a great way of getting around the city to see all that Miami has to offer.

Trackside at the 2023 Miami Grand Prix

After the inevitable first year teething issues at the 2022 Miami Grand Prix, race organisers are keen to improve the trackside experience for fans in 2023. In January, organisers announced changes to improve both the racing on-track – including the resurfacing of the track surface – plus changes for ticket-holding fans. The latter includes viewing access of the Formula 1 Paddock for fans with General Admission tickets, plus improvements to the hospitality offering. 

Like in 2022, the track will be divided into eight separate zones, each with their own entry points, food and drinks stalls, merchandise shops and other amenities. Head to our Trackside page for more information on how to extract the most from your visit to the 2023 Miami Grand Prix – including the full on-track schedule, list of prohibited items, track opening times and further information about Fanzones.

While there’s plenty to look forward to on-track here’s also lots to take in outside of the circuit. Miami is a vibrant, multicultural and immersive city. You’ll find some of the world’s finest beaches around Miami’s shorelines, an impressive array of arts on the city’s streets and a range of culinary experiences which are not to be missed.

Other special events include a Racing Fan Festival plus race watch parties. 

Miami is famed for its nightlife – including the 24/7 ‘Ultraclub’ E11EVEN. Rick Ross, DJ Snake, deadmau5 and Dutch DJ Tiesto are among the acts confirmed to be performing at the venue during 2023 Miami Grand Prix race week.
