Formula 1 returns bigger and bolder
Formula 1 is sets to be even bigger than last year, with many new VIP experiences that cost up to $67,000 added to the incredible, star-studded and high-profile lineup.
Miami will once again host the Formula 1 Grand Prix for the second consecutive year from May 5-7. This year's event promises to be even better than the previous year, with exciting special features, celebrity sightings, and fine dining options. The event will be held at the Miami International Autodrome, situated in Miami Gardens, Florida. The track is 3.63 miles long and features 19 corners, with average speeds of 140 miles per hour. The Hard Rock Stadium surrounds the track, providing a seating capacity of 65,000 people.
But, the Formula 1 spectacle is as much as the high-profile events as the race itself.
Last year, Formula 1 attracted a lot of excitement and drew the attention of many celebrities and sporting legends like Michael Jordan, Tom Brady, David Beckham, Serena Williams, Dwayne Wade, Matt Damon, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis, Bad Bunny, Pharrell Williams and more. This year, it promises to be bigger and bolder.
The event organizers have invested in a new 190,000 square foot Paddock Club building that can accommodate over 6,000 guests in its private suites. Additionally, a Formula 1 Team Village will be created on the football field.
Formula 1 Miami includes tickets for $5,000 and bottle service for $200,000. If you plan to attend the Miami Grand Prix, be prepared to spend $35,000 for a table at a club or $67,000 for a sunset cabana.

Formula 1 revenues
Formula 1 racing events generate substantial revenue for the cities that host them. The inaugural F1 Miami Grand Prix held last year brought a significant boost of $350 million in fresh spending to the city. This was through increased hotel bookings, lavish nights out, and advertising earnings. As per the data gathered by Applied Analysis, the average spending by racing enthusiasts was $1,940 per person. This amount is twice the money spent by the average Miami tourist. More.
