Williams driver George Russell has given a glimpse into the Miami Grand Prix circuit due to make its F1 debut next season.
Russell recently visited the Hard Rock Stadium, home to Miami Dolphins American football team, around which the 19-turn, 5.41km Miami International Autodrome will be laid out for the May 6-8 event.
FIA race director Michael Masi recently dismissed concern the grand prix would resemble others in the United States in the past and be nothing more than a race around a car park.
Russell, however, was suitably impressed after conducting a number of laps on a simulator, describing it as “really, really cool”.
“[There are] Lots of fast-flowing sections, I feel there will be plenty of overtaking opportunities as well but also a real street vibe with some tight and twisty corners,” added Russell, speaking in a video on Williams’ YouTube channel.
“It will be really interesting to see how we get on when we come here next year but so far so good.”
