Red Bull driver Sergio Perez has conceded that "busier races" like the new Miami Grand Prix are "hard to manage".
F1 makes its inaugural visit to the Miami International Autodrome this weekend and with a high level of interest from the American crowd and sponsors, events have taken place across the week.
As well as scheduled team activities, drivers and teams attended an opening ceremony on Wednesday night to officially begin the weekend outside Hard Rock Stadium.
"I am excited to be [in] Miami this week, it is great that the calendar is expanding more in America, which is a lot closer to home for me and one day I might end up living there!
"It is a great market for Formula 1 and I am sure there will be a lot of Latin Americans and Mexicans at the race, so hopefully I get a lot of support and it will be a very important race for the team both on and off the track.
"These busier races are hard to manage but the team do an incredible job at making sure Max and I can focus on our driving."
Perez form "great motivation"
Mexican Perez has enjoyed a strong start to the season with a pole position in Saudi Arabia followed up with second-place finishes in Australia and Imola.
The points tally could be even stronger had it not been for retirement from the podium on the final lap of the Bahrain Grand Prix and an ill-timed safety car taking a possible win away in Jeddah.
"I am now fighting for poles and podiums every week, which is great motivation to keep pushing and keep focus," insisted Perez.
"I just want more week after week, and I am looking forward to seeing what we can do in Miami."
