F1 buys more time for Miami Grand Prix decision

F1 buys more time for Miami Grand Prix decision
By:
Sep 26, 2018, 9:26 AM

The Miami City Commission is to vote on Thursday on the indefinite deferral of the resolution to hold an Formula 1 race in the city.

The resolution for the city manager to conclude a deal with the F1 organisation for a race commencing in 2019 was passed earlier this year.

However, in July, F1 confirmed that there would be no race next year, allowing more time to work on arrangements.

Commercial boss Sean Bratches noted at the time: "We are taking a long-term view and as a result, we have decided, in consultation with the Miami authorities, to postpone sign-off until later in the summer, with the aim of running the first F1 Miami Grand Prix in the 2020 season."

That late summer deadline has been missed.

The resolution has now been listed on the agenda for Thursday's City Commission meeting under the "to be indefinitely deferred" category.

This is understood to be a formality that in effect buys more time for negotiations to be completed, but that doesn't mean that plans for the race are dead.

"The way our system works is, if the item is deferred, it keeps getting put on an agenda until a decision is made one way or the other," a source close to the Miami City Commission told Motorsport.com.

"F1 has some things to work out with various parties, so it's not ready to be considered.

"When we defer indefinitely, it doesn't come back for six months, unless we specifically call it back to an agenda.

"Maybe F1 will work out the issues and come back to us, maybe they won't. What's certain is, there won't be a race in Miami in 2019."
