Miami F1 creates spike in Haas interest

Guenther Steiner has hailed the impact the Miami Grand Prix has already had on the American-owned Haas F1 team.

Miami will host its inaugural F1 event this weekend with the venue joining the Circuit of the Americas as the second United States venue on the current calendar.

This number will be further boosted in 2023 with the addition of a race under the lights in Las Vegas.

As the only American outfit on the grid, these latest additions have put focus on Haas, but team principal Steiner revealed he will not be rushed into any deals.

“I’ve seen the impact," said Steiner. "We’ve got a lot more interest for partnerships, for sponsorship and it has risen quite a lot.

"Now, we can take a little bit of time to go through and see how it develops but for sure, having the race in Miami and adding a race in Las Vegas next year, a third race in the States, will help all of this.

"We’re in no hurry but the sport is in a good place at the moment."

Miami a "great addition" to F1

The new Miami layout loops around the Hard Rock Stadium and has so far been praised by drivers that have tried the circuit on a simulator.

Asked if it feels different to race 'at home', Steiner added: “It’s always exciting to race at home and now having a second race in Miami, it’s even more exciting and it’s closer to our base in North Carolina.

"Having a show around the racing is a great addition and the combination of both makes it more valuable to the sport, but the main event is always the racing."
