It’s all systems go for this weekend’s Miami Grand Prix and the Formula 1 drivers are feeling enthusiastic about the new track ahead of the maiden event.
Alfa Romeo’s Valtteri Bottas believes that the new track will provide drivers with several overtaking opportunities which should make for better racing.
“I think the way the track has been planned, I think, from my side, it looks positive. It should be good racing. Pretty long straights and a couple of really good overtaking opportunities,” Bottas said.
Red Bull’s Sergio Perez has also praised the long straights on the new track but is cautious of the visibility on some twisty areas of the circuit.
“I think it has a little bit of a twisty area that is quite difficult to get right and the visibility can be difficult. But I think racing can be good with all those long straights,” said the Mexican driver.
The Miami GP will be the first race taking place in the United States this year, with the other event being held in Austin in October.
