After successful races in 2022 and 2023, Formula 1 returns to Florida for the third running of the Miami Grand Prix on May 3-5. The race held on the new track around Hard Rock Stadium promises to be an action-packed affair, with the near sell-out crowd having lots to look forward to. Yet to secure tickets for the race itself? A limited number remain available via our trusted ticket partner Grand Prix Tickets.

The on-track action gets underway on Friday, with the only hour of Formula 1 Free Practice before qualifying takes place for the Sprint, which makes its first appearance in Miami this year. The Sprint race and Grand Prix qualifying follows on Saturday, before the main event – the 2024 Miami Grand Prix – on Sunday.

But there’s much more to enjoy than just the on-track action in Miami. Though the festivities may have been scaled back slightly from the inaugural event, Miami is still embracing F1’s presence with a number of special events lined up for race goers in the days leading up to the Grand Prix.
