We have made the long trip from Azerbaijan to Florida as it’s time for the second-ever Miami Grand Prix.
This year, there’s a hometown hero to root for! Logan Sargeant grew up a stone's throw away (if you are a Dolphins quarterback) from the Miami International Autodrome.
Learn about that and more with five things you should know ahead of the Miami Grand Prix.
Just five rounds into his Formula 1 career, Logan Sargeant is already being treated to his first home race.
Hailing from Fort Lauderdale, Sarge will be racing a short 30-minute ride from the place he calls home, only Charles Leclerc in Monaco can claim a home race that is more on his doorstep.
Having moved to Europe to pursue his F1 dream during his teenage years, this weekend’s race will actually be the first time Logan has raced cars in his homeland. What a way to make your US debut!

We are back in Miami aiming for a second-successive points finish in the Sunshine State.
Alex Albon fought hard here in 2022, picking up two points for his P9 finish, something he’ll be hoping to achieve once again.
With three DRS zones, Logan and Alex will be hoping to utilise the FW45’s straight-line speed to its full potential.
The 5.412km Miami International Autodrome has been repaved ahead of the 2023 race to help aid the on-track action.
There was plenty of feedback from drivers and teams alike about the surface after the inaugural running on this temporary venue in 2022, and the organisers have taken that feedback on board.
“We could have just come back with the race track that we had last year,” Tom Garfinkel, Miami GP managing partner, explained.
“The track we had last year, there were parts where there was one line where there should have been a possibility to overtake. We weren't happy with that.
“So we're going to go through the investment expense to go ahead and repave it, in an effort to try to get it where the racing is better.”
Taking to the field
A new track surface isn't the only new addition to the Miami International Autodrome for 2023.
Whilst there are no modifications to the layout, plenty has changed off-track with an all-new three-story Paddock Club building that will no doubt be a who’s who of famous faces come Sunday’s race.
And, in a unique twist, teams will be taking to the Hard Rock Stadium field in 2023 as that is where the paddock will be located.
Doing so has given us more space to go about our weekend duties and fans with General Admission tickets will be able to head to the upper tier of the stadium itself and watch us go about our business.
