Viewership record in America for first F1 race in Miami

On Saturday, the qualifier was broadcast on ESPN to 953 000 viewers. The first practice session on Friday was watched by 398,000 viewers. With this, Formula 1 achieved the highest viewing figures since the sport returned to the United States in 2018.

ABC, the parent company to ESPN, took over the broadcast on Sunday and that gave a boost to the ratings. On average, about 2.6 million viewers saw Max Verstappen triumph during the Miami GP, an all-time record for Formula 1 in the United States.

By comparison, NASCAR also held the Darlington 400 on Sunday, which was watched by 2.61 million people. More than decent figures for F1.
