Lewis Hamilton not a fan of proposed Miami Grand Prix street circuit

Azerbaijan F1 Grand Prix

Lewis Hamilton has attacked plans made by Formula One owners Liberty Media to introduce a Miami Grand Prix circuit to the schedule.

Hamilton claimed his first win of the 2018 season when he triumphed at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix at the end of April, with the four-time Drivers' Championship winner aiming to push on for a fifth title, having endured a difficult start.

But, it is another issue on the track that has annoyed Hamilton as of late.

A proposed circuit in Miami has been put forward, with a possible race happening as early as next year, as owners Liberty Media aim to further expand the franchise to a different audience in an attempt to win over more fans.

Miami's district commissioner Ken Russell shared an image regarding a potential route that any Miami race would involve.

The city is due to also host a Formula One fan event ahead of the United States Grand Prix later this season.

However, Hamilton remains unimpressed at the plans presented by Liberty Media about introducing a race in Miami, and admitted his displeasure about holding such a street event.

Reacting to the news on social media, Hamilton joked that he could design a better track for a Miami race, given the opportunity!

"OK so I've just seen the design of the Miami track," Hamilton posted on Instagram.

"Na bruh, it's not the one. Let me design it."

Formula One and Liberty Media confirmed last week that proposals were in place, while a vote will be held on Wednesday.

"Earlier today the City of Miami Commission took an important step by adding an item to their upcoming agenda, that if approved, will make way to bring Formula One to downtown Miami next season," F1's managing director of commercial operations Sean Bratches said.

"We appreciate the community's interest in hosting a Formula One race and look forward to working with local officials and stakeholders to bring this vision to life."
