Current F1 World Champion Max Verstappen of Red Bull Racing may have held off a late race charge from Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc to win in the first-ever Formula 1 Crypto.com Miami Grand Prix this weekend.
But I’m just going to come out and say it. All of the members of the capacity crowd that filled F1’s newest track complex all weekend long, and the millions of new American fans that have fallen in love with F1 after binge watching Netflix’s smash hit Drive to Survive, were probably the biggest winners.
Not only were any concerns about track design, construction and overall event management put to rest when fans started to stream into the large venue built around the Hard Rock stadium last week. The top three drivers were full of praise for the track and organization too: “It’s not easy to put on an event like this and they did an amazing job.” said race winner Verstappen.
And while the racers praised the track, the dry-dock Marina at the Miami International Autodrome that was specificly built to bring a unique Miami-vibe fan experience to the race got lots of attention too .
Located on the inside of Turns 6, 7 & 8 the MSC Cruises Yacht Club at the MIA Marina featured 10 yachts that were transported to the track on trailers to provide a killer trackside expierence as well as be a comfortable and spacious area to watch the race for a highly select group of guests.
