The date has been confirmed for next year's inaugural Miami Grand Prix, which will take place on 8 May.

The Hard Rock Stadium, which is owned by Stephen Ross and is home to his NFL franchise the Miami Dolphins, will be the 11th different location F1 has raced in in the US race since the start of the world championship in 1950.

A new circuit is to be constructed at the complex and will be called the Miami International Autodrome. The 5.41km course will feature 19 corners, three straights and an estimated top speed of 320km/h.

"There has been tremendous enthusiasm and anticipation for this event, and we're happy to be able to announce the date so that people can start planning for it," organisers said in a statement.

Formula One last visited the state of Florida in 1959 when New Zealand's Bruce McLaren won the season closing event at Sebring.

This year's US Grand Prix is set to take place in Texas on 24 October. The Circuit of the Americas has hosted every edition of the race since 2012, bar last year when Covid-19 put paid to its running, and it is expected to be retained next year alongside the Miami event.

The full 2022 calendar is set to be confirmed next month.
