Why F1 in America “feels different” now to previous eras
F1 has had a fragmented approach to America, with the United States Grand Prix being held at 10 different locations over 50 times. The recent involvement of Liberty Media as the owner of F1 has led to a concentrated effort to expand the sport in the US, resulting in multiple races each season. Long-term contracts have been established, indicating a more stable and promising future for F1 in America. Tom Garfinkel, managing partner of the Miami Grand Prix, believes that this growth is different from anything seen before and credits Liberty Media for their investment and desire to continue expanding in the US. The upcoming addition of the Las Vegas Grand Prix further highlights this growth and partnership between Liberty Media and the F1 races in America.
