Miami Grand Prix 'safety car traffic jams' predicted

Miami Grand Prix 'safety car traffic jams' predicted

AlphaTauri driver Yuki Tsunoda has warned of "a real traffic jam" in the final sector of the Miami International Autodrome should a safety car be called upon.

F1 has arrived in Florida for the inaugural Miami Grand Prix with the state-of-the-art venue built around the Hard Rock Stadium that plays host to the Miami Dolphins NFL team.

Much like the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix venue in Jeddah, the track boasts a purpose-built street layout, providing a challenge for drivers with high-speed sections that lead into technical, more traditional road sectors.

Addressing the new circuit, Tsunoda said: "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, hopefully, overtaking will be key for the track and yeah, I guess I'm really looking forward to it."

Miami GP can provide 'good racing' - Perez

Sergio Perez enters the weekend as the closest the crowd has to a home driver and will be looking to build from his second place in Imola two weeks ago.

The Red Bull driver took a sensational pole in Jeddah and giving his take on the latest circuit, the Mexican commented: "I think it's 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."
