The Formula One drivers who had had an opportunity to take a simulation on Miami GP, had proffered exciting feedbacks about the track with AlphaTauri’s Gasly branding the grid “pretty awesome”. In factuality, four F1 drivers have received the opportunity to try Miami sim prior to Imola, while three of them were running the simulation in Red Bull technology.
Nevertheless, four F1 drivers such as AlphaTauri’s Gasly and Tsunoda, Red Bull’s Perez alongside Alpha Romeo’s Perez, have reportedly had extreme fun in simulation, while all of them offered affirmatives reviews about the grid.
F1 drivers label the Miami arena “awesome” after simulation
Meanwhile, Gasly shared his experience of a simulation tour into Miami track with an online news outlet saying, “I've tried it and I must say it looks pretty awesome.
I really liked the layout. Quite a lot of high-speed content, quite challenging, unusual type of corners, extremely long corners, very long straights. I think we should have some pretty good American entertainment, good entertainment the whole weekend, so very excited about it, and the location is unique.
So very hyped about the weekend”. Nonetheless, Sergio Perez warned that the end of the lap could be tight with a number of narrow-angle corners between turns 11-16 adding, “I think it's a good circuit.
I think it has a little bit of a twisty area that is quite difficult to get right, and the visibility can be difficult. But I think racing can be good with all those long straights. I just hope the asphalt can be good, and we can have good racing, because when we come to new circuits, we find some good surprises”.
Echoing the 32-year-old Mexican’s remarks, AlphaTauri’s Tsunoda said, “It's really different, especially in sector three, it's such tight corners. If a safety car happens, I guess it's going to be like a real traffic jam there, because it's super tight, even on like a ...(neck-to-neck)...
lap, it’s still quite slow corners. So, it's going to be interesting to see, but like Checo says, hopefully overtaking will be key for that track”. Alpha Romeo’s Valtteri Bottas, who took the simulation in Hinwil, expressed optimism over the track saying, “Actually it was nice to see that it seems to be a really good track for overtaking,” said the Finn.
I think the way the track has been planned, I think, from my side, it looks positive. It should be good racing. Pretty long straights and a couple of really good overtaking opportunities. So, let's see how it is done in real life, but to me on paper, it looks good. And I'm sure as an event it’s going to be pretty amazing”.
