Miami F1 detailed weekend schedule

If you’re lucky enough to be heading to the race in person then you’ll want to know the precise timings to see what is happening when over the three days. 

If you’re a campus pass holder, you should pay particular attention to the parking and spectator gate opening times. Campus pass holders have almost full access to the whole venue, but don’t get a reserved seat in a grandstand or premium viewing area. Instead they have access to the general admission viewing areas.

Our guide to the Miami F1 campus pass shows some of the best viewing areas for campus pass holders. But these will be very popular, so to stand a chance of getting a good spot for the race on Sunday you need to get there first thing.

Use our Miami F1 parking guide to work out how long it will take you to get from your parking lot to the spectator entrance. Plan to be at the spectator entrance nearest to your desired viewingarea at least 30 minutes before the stated gate opening times to stand any chance of getting one of the best general admission viewing spots.
