F1 organisers are reportedly one step closer to landing a deal on the planned Miami street race for the 2022 calendar.
Although the hopes of a street race circuit in Miami were fairly well squashed at the end of 2020, with residents protesting the new addition to the calendar, Domenicali confirmed a few months ago that the fight for this race was not off the cards.
Meanwhile, the latest reports suggest that the Mayor once protesting against the proposal has now instigated interest once again.
In a previous interview, Stefano Domenicali said; “Our strategy in the future will be to be more present in the US with more than one Grand Prix.
“Austin has been very important in the last years of our calendar. It will be also in the future and we are discussing with them the renewal of the agreement.
“And of course, Miami is a place where we are looking. I cannot say more than that.
“But for sure, there is a big interest from both parties to be there.”
It would be the first time Formula One has taken to the streets of Miami should plans get the official go-ahead.
Among the agreements set to be discussed, is having all the action on Friday take place after 2:30 pm because schools let out at this time – leaving the potential for a night race that Sunday.
The City’s Council is set to discuss the proposal, set forth by Rodney Harris before the final decision is made on Wednesday.
Should the news be positive for F1 organisers, a Miami street race could grace the F1 calendar as soon as 2022.
Racing resumes for R2 at Imola this weekend for the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, with lights out on Sunday at 14:00 Irish time.
