Following another successful weekend of world-class racing last year, The Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix returns May 3 to 5, bringing with it a slew of fan experiences, entertainment and culinary offerings from the beach to the mainland. The races go down at the Miami International Autodrome, a 19-turn, 3.36-mile track within the complex of Hard Rock Stadium.

Guests can catch a practice round on Friday and a qualifying race on Saturday, all leading up to the Grand Prix on Sunday, with Marc Anthony slated to belt the national anthem. Take in three days of spectacle at the Autodrome—but there’s fun to be had outside the grounds, too. Read on for everything you need to know ahead of this year’s F1 Miami Grand Prix.

What are the different viewing areas at Hard Rock Stadium?

Marquee spaces at the Miami Grand Prix, such as the MIA Marina and Hard Rock Beach Club, return this year with a lineup of live entertainment hospitality areas. Expect expanded grandstand seats and improved general admission campus passes with elevated viewing platforms and increased shade and water stations.

The 190,000-square-foot Paddock Club is the pinnacle of trackside hospitality, with premium suites and a luxury rooftop club atop the F1 Team Garages overlooking the Starting Grid. Elevated cuisine, culinary demos and premium open bars are among the amenities. This also includes access to the F1 Paddock and F1 Podium Celebration. There’s also a Paddock Club Rooftop featuring all the OG Paddock Club hospitality, but rather than being in an enclosed suite, this year it’s perched on an open-air, free-flow rooftop.

The Championship Club offers amazing views, all-day hospitality, delicious food and premium, free-flowing beverages. You’ll have a chance to enjoy a guided tour of the F1 Paddock and a grid walk and photo with the F1 World Championship trophy. This year’s Championship Club venue is a three-story structure with an open terrace on level 3 positioned inside the track at Turn 5. 

Rounding out the hospitality offerings is the MoneyGram Haas F1 Team Suite, a covered, climate-controlled venue with access to a standing terrace on the Main Straight above the F1 Team Garages with views of the starting grid and pit lane. This option includes a specially curated local food menu and premium open bars with complimentary refreshments. 

Will there be a beach at Hard Rock Stadium?

Sort of. Hard Rock Beach Club will bring South Florida beaches to the track alongside resort-style pools and luxury cabanas. The beach club will span turns 11 and 12 and will be a major part of the attraction. The best part? This year’s poolside performers include Steve Aoki on May 3, Ed Sheeran and Don Omar on May 4 and John Summit and Kasakde on May 5.
