Max Verstappen – Belgium-born, Max drives for the Red Bull Racing Team. He ended up winning the 2021 championship. He has 20 wins and over 60 podiums. He has a lot of starts to his name and will continue to take ranks if he keeps racing the way he has.

These currently stand at 7, with 288 starting poles. He also has 103 wins and 180 podiums. He finished 2nd in 2021 and will continue to make his move next year.
Lando Norris – Another British driver trying to make his name well renowned is Lando Norris. A fairly new driver to the circuit, Lando has yet to win but does have 5 podiums. He has only entered 60 events as well. He will be looking to make his move this year.
Carlos Sainz – This Spanish driver made some nice moves in 2021. He has yet to win an event, but placed 5th in the 2021 position. He drives for Ferrari and will continue to grow as this year’s events make their turn.

He currently has no wins or podiums. He’s shown some promise so he is one to keep an eye out on. He is also the son of Michael Schumacher, one of the most famous Formula One drivers ever.
What Type of Ticket Should You Buy?
The weekend pass is the best of the best. You will have access to the event all weekend long without purchasing extra tickets. A Sunday pass is almost as expensive as a full weekend pass, so you are almost better off getting the three-day pass and attending on the days you want to go. Say you want to go Friday and Sunday, with a weekend pass you will save money over buying the tickets individually. Keep this in mind when picking the day.
The Friday pass will be the cheapest ticket to the Formula 1 race in Miami. You will find around the same amount of people in the area but can get better viewing locations. A lot of people will be chilling out and partying pretty hard while the practice runs are happening.
The whole weekend is worth attending, but there is something about Saturday racing. You can have a great time watching some of the circuit and new drivers while also having an amazing time. Qualifying runs are always a good time if your favorite driver is in play. Don’t be afraid to catch a ride to the event so you can have even a better time.
Well, if you want to see the main event then Sunday it is. Get your tickets from places like SeatGeek. You will probably pay a premium, but if you are dying to go, this will be the way. It will be really cool to catch Formula 1 events in the United States again.
