Selected F1 drivers discuss about trying the Miami GP circuit on simulator as they share their view on how the layout has felt like.

With only few days left for the first-ever Miami GP, selected drivers have spoken on how street circuit is on the simulator especially with the setting around the Hard Rock Stadium. Despite some criticism of the ‘parking lot’ venue, drivers are upbeat about it.

While most didn’t get the chance to try it on simulator around the Imola weekend, by now most or all must have already tried it from then and now. Here’s what selected F1 drivers said regarding the venue and the circuit:

Pierre Gasly: “I’ve tried it and I must say it looks pretty awesome. I really liked the layout. Quite a lot of high-speed content, quite challenging, unusual type of corners, extremely long corners, very long straights. I think we should have some pretty good American entertainment, good entertainment the whole weekend, so very excited about it and the location is unique. So very hyped about the weekend.”

Sebastian Vettel: “I had to go in the sim, it will come. But yeah, I think it’s great to explore new venues and obviously it’s an exciting city.”

Guanyu Zhou: “Going to the first time to Miami is quite nice. I think the atmosphere that weekend will be very fun.”

Sergio Perez: “I think it’s a good a good circuit. I think it’s… it has a little bit of a twisty area that it’s quite difficult to get right and the visibility can be difficult. But I think racing can be good with all those long straights so yeah, I just hope the asphalt can be good and we can have good racing because yeah, when we come to new circuits we will find some good surprises.”

Yuki Tsunoda: “Yeah, I drove already. It’s really tricky. I mean different, especially in sector three, like it’s such tight corners. If a safety car happens, I guess it’s gonna be like a real traffic jam there because like it’s super tight.  Even like a hot lap is still quite slow corners so it’s gonna be interesting to see but… yeah, like Checo says, hopefully that overtaking will be key for that track. And yeah, I guess I’m really looking forward to it.”
