The 2024 Formula 1 season continues with a second consecutive sprint weekend as the Miami Grand Prix hosts the format for the first time.

The wet sprint drama in China is followed by another action-packed weekend as Florida State hosts the first of three races in the USA this season.

In addition to the sprint format that brings a new dynamic to the action at the Miami International Autodrome, the venue offers the incredible sight of a paddock on the field at the Miami Dolphins' Hard Rock Stadium and attracts some of the world's biggest stars in sports and entertainment .

The new 2024 format will operate on the second of six sprint weekends this season and will continue to allow teams and drivers just one 60-minute training session before competitive action begins with sprint qualifying on Friday evening.

The 100km sprint competition follows first on Saturday, with full qualifying taking place later in the day before the main event, the Grand Prix on Sunday.

On track, Max Verstappen will look to keep his quest for a fourth consecutive drivers' title on track after dominant victories in Japan and China.

Lando Norris will look to build on his season's best second place finish in China, with the Brit's hopes potentially boosted by the introduction of upgrades to his McLaren.

Ferrari will be looking to get back into form after a poor weekend in China and missing out on a podium finish for the first time this season, while Mercedes will be hoping to improve on its disappointing start to the year with upgrades to the W15 also on the cards.

Away from the track, there will be a lot to consider at Thursday's media day after legendary designer Adrian Newey decided to leave Red Bull and Nico Hulkenberg's move from Haas to Sauber was confirmed for next season.
