The second edition of the Miami Grand Prix in 2023 saw an increased attendance of 270,000 fans over 3 days, despite many unsold (and discounted) tickets still being available right up until race weekend. Despite Max Verstappen winning again, there were lots of interesting on-track battles throughout the rest of the field.
