Formula 1 Miami GP marina has fake water

It may be one of the most surreal things that could come out of the spectacle of Formula 1, but it is something that is happening right no


It may be one of the most surreal things that could come out of the spectacle of Formula 1, but it is something that is happening right now on the other side of the Atlantic. Apparently the organizers of the Formula 1 Miami GP have wanted to set the surroundings of the circuit with a beach and a Leisure port, sports port, characteristic signs of the city located in Florida (United States). However, the result is so artificial that even the water is fake.

The Grand Prix will be held this weekend on a makeshift race track built on what is a NFL stadium parking lot. As the landscape was not going to be the most beautiful in the place and it did not represent the most touristic part of Miami (the beach) at all, the organizers decided build a fake marina, with a fake beach and fake ocean watera whole potpourri of optical illusions that may look good on television, but are ridiculous in person.

This was demonstrated in sky sport f1when one of its reporters went to this supposed marina to show its spectators that what seemed like the turquoise waters of the sea, is actually a kind of graphic printed on a platformwhere some boats (real, at least) and that has its own moorings, and a beach with sun loungers and tents.

According to The Drivesome fans consider this all to be frankly “shameful”while some journalists who have seen it up close say that it looks more like a “Formula 1 trade show” than an actual Grand Prix. And actually, this is what it looks like. An infrastructure with the economic muscle of F1 should not fall for this type of crappy and vulgar resources.

Despite the false decoration of the Formula 1 Miami GP, this weekend there will be racing and many drivers have already praised the layout of the circuit. Let’s hope that all the excitement of Sunday ends up putting aside all this paraphernalia that has been built around the track. Do not miss the video (in English).
