If the 2022 season was anything to go by, Formula One racing fans are in for a real treat with the 2023 season.
While there are many Grand Prix events to look forward to in 2023, one in particular that has many racing fans excited is the F1 Miami Grand Prix. For only the second time in history, F1 will return to the Sunshine State of Miami, over the weekend of May 5 – May 7, when the Miami Grand Prix takes place.
F1 Miami GP Information, Analysis
Taking place for just the second ever, the F1 Miami GP will take place at the Miami International Autodro for just the second time. This circuit was designed and constructed by F1 track designers Apex Circuit Desiglt specifically for this event and consists of 57 laps, a total length of 191.585 miles (308.326 km), and a circuit length of 3.363 miles (5.412 km). The F1 Miami Grand Prix track proved to be a real hit with racing fans, as did the first race, in which Max Verstappen of Red Bull was the victor.
Can Max Verstappen repeat history and secure a victory at F1 Miami Grand Prix again, or will Ferrari’s Charles LeClerc have something to say about it?
F1 Miami Grand Prix Prediction Course Details
As with any F1 Grand Prix, one essential factor to take into consideration is the weather.
The weather of any F1 event can greatly affect the outcome, so what can we expect in Miami on May 7 for the Miami Grand Prix? Will the Sunshine State indeed provide plenty of sunshine, or will Mother Nature throw a spanner in the works? Well, of course, conditions are uncertain until closer to the time, but we can take an educated guess.
Miami in May, and indeed, much of the year, is warm and sunny. You can therefore put good money on blue skies and hot sunshine being present during qualifying and the race itself. Temperatures will be very warm, likely reaching the high 20s and low 30s. Expect temps of between 24 degrees C and 32 degrees C.
There is, however, always the possibility of rain, particularly from thunderstorms, which can strike (pardon the pun) at any time in Miami. It can also potentially get breezy, though winds shouldn’t be strong enough to be a real factor.
F1 Miami Grand Prix Odds to Win — Who to Watch
One of the best things about the F1 Miami Grand Prix is the fact that, as the race is so new, we don’t know for certain which drivers are likely to perform better here.
Of course, some names in F1 are always worth watching, especially when they’re in form, so here’s who we’re keeping an eye on in Miami next year.
Max Verstappen Odds
Expect to see Max’s name pop up a lot over the coming months as the youngster is arguably driving in the form of his life and is quickly proving to be one of the hottest names in F1.
Max won the F1 Miami Grand Prix last year, making him the only driver to have ever won here, and Red Bull, the only Constructor to have ever won here. Max also set the fastest lap in 2022, with a time of 1.31.361 on lap 54.
Carlos Sainz Jr. Prediction
Son of the legendary Carlos Sainz Snr, Carlos Sainz Jr recently signed a contract extension with Ferrari that will keep him with the team until the end of the 2024 season. He’ll be looking to prove his worth and help Ferrari uproot Red Bull at the top of the mountain.
In the 2022 F1 Miami Grand Prix, Carlos finished in 3rd place and will have his sights set on first place this time around.
Charles LeClerc Odds
Many are predicting that Max Verstappen will secure his 3rd consecutive Driver’s Championship next year. However, if there is one man who can prevent this, it’s Ferrari’s Charles LeClerc.
LeClerc looked very strong in 2022, and he and Verstappen are quickly forging a sporting rivalry for the ages.
Last year LeClerc, who secured Pole Position, finished in 2nd place, and you better believe he’ll be aiming for a win in Florida this time around.
Prediction for F1 Miami Grand Prix 2023
Charles LeClerc has impressed a lot of people at Ferrari, and many believe it is only a matter of time before he becomes a world champion. Based on his performance, his momentum, and how he did in 2022, we’re going with a LeClerc first-place finish at the F1 Miami Grand Prix 2023.
In 2nd place, we’re going with Carlos Sainz Jr, while in 3rd, we’re going with current champ Max Verstappen.
As far as constructors go, it will almost certainly be a battle between Red Bull and Ferrari, though we’re going with Ferrari as both LeClerc and Sainz look so impressive.
