Formula One returns to Florida after a 63 year absence: in 1959, two years before Brembo was established, racing was at Sebring on a track in an old military aerodrome which featured several hairpin bends. This year, racing will take place at the Miami International Autodrome which is located at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.
It is a 5.41 km (3.36 mile) long street circuit with three straight sections and 19 turns but with various differences in height especially between turns 13 and 16. According to Brembo technicians, the Miami International Autodrome falls into the category of circuits with a medium level of difficulty for brakes. On a scale of 1 to 5, it is rated 3 on the difficulty index, the same as the other US track, the Circuit of the Americas.
