Lewis Hamilton gives his opinion on the first ever Miami Grand Prix and Formula 1’s “huge” expansion into the United States.

This weekend Miami will host its first ever Formula 1 Grand Prix. During his appearance on Good Morning America, Lewis Hamilton talked about the sport’s increasing presence in the United States.

“It’s been nerve-wracking because it’s going to be huge, such a huge event for us,” the Briton said.

“We obviously have the race in Austin, Texas, which has always been amazing. The first race I had out here was Indianapolis in 2007.

“But now, with the Netflix series ‘Drive to Survive’ growing, we have two Grands Prix in the States, and then we have another one in Vegas next year.

“It’s going to be huge.”

Asked if he believes Formula 1 is now here to stay in the US, Lewis said:

“I think so, yeah. I’ve been coming out here for a long, long time, but I never quite understood why people weren’t into Formula 1.

“Everyone knew NASCAR and, obviously, you’ve got such huge sports fans out here.

“But, as I said, the Netflix show, particularly through the pandemic, has just brought massive awareness to the sport, and now it’s booming,” he concluded.
