Video: Take a sim lap of the Miami GP's new circuit


It is but a sim lap obviously, but the virtual onboard still offers a pretty good idea of what drivers will experience next year when Formula 1 takes to the streets of Miami for the very first time.

Last week at Imola, F1 boss Stefano Domenicali and Miami Grand Prix managing partner Tom Garfinkel came together to sign a 10-year deal that will put Florida's 'Magic City' on the F1 map from 2022.

Garfinkel highlighted how the event plans to "blow F1 fans away" by offering a great environment centered around the Miami Dolphin's towering Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.

But perhaps the venue's most important feature will be the track itself, a 19-corner layout that will unfold over 5.41-kilometer with a mix of tight and high-speed turns that should boost the show on the track.

Check out the onboard video from Apex Circuit Designs which used the Assetto Corso game to simulate the new track.
