Formula 1’s Miami Grand Prix Shatters Record For TV Audience

U.S. TV viewership of the Formula 1’s Miami Grand Prix this past weekend has broken records.

An average of 3.1 million viewers in the U.S. watched the event, ABC said.

That is 48% higher than last year’s 2.1 million viewers, and also above the previous record of 2.6 million U.S. viewers for the inaugural Miami Grand Prix in 2022, which held the previous U.S. TV viewership record.

The Miami Grand Prix holds all of the top three U.S. viewership records for Formula 1.

This year’s event attracted billionaires, athletes and celebrities from around the world.

Attendance in 2024 also broke records at 275,000, with organizers now saying they want to increase capacity even further to meet demand.
