In recent years, Formula 1 has attempted unsuccessfully to host another Grand Prix in the United States, in addition to that of Austin. But F1 boss Stefano Domenicali said talks have again taken place with organizers in Miami. The sport still wants “more presence in the United States” and is aiming for a second race, preferably in Miami, Florida.

“We certainly must not forget that we have lost some European races, which are now showing interest in a review,” said the Italian, who admits he currently has his hands full on the changes needed for the future of the sport.
Tomorrow (Thursday) a decision will be made on possible sprint races, which are scheduled for three races in the coming season. Apparently in Canada, Italy and Brazil.
It’s also not entirely clear whether there will be 23 or more races on the calendar in the future. “We know that with 23 races we are almost at the maximum,” said Domenicali. “If you deliver a good product, you might be wondering if it has any added value to add more races per season to the calendar.”
In recent years there have been several discussions in the paddock about a maximum number of races of 25. It is not predictable if this will ever happen to this. The Italian Formula 1 boss believes that exciting races are more important than more races with too little entertainment.
