The Miami Grand Prix have announced leading Formula 1 race promoter Richard Cregan as their CEO for the event, which is set to take place next year.

Formula 1 have previously said the Miami GP will take place in the second-quarter of the season, indicating the new American event is likely to be held around the same time as the Canadian GP at the end of May or in June.

"Miami has been a dream destination for Formula 1 over many years and it is a privilege to accept the role of CEO," said Cregan.

"Working within the world's most vibrant market for sports, the USA, and joining a team anchored by the world-class talent at the Miami Dolphins, means that I am understandably thrilled by the potential of what we can achieve together when we welcome F1 to Florida in 2022."

F1's first Miami GP will see the drivers race on a high-speed street circuit around the Hard Rock Stadium, home of the NFL team the Miami Dolphins.

"We have high standards on what we expect to deliver in Miami for F1 teams, drivers, sponsors, and fans," said Miami GP managing partner Tom Garfinkel.

"The first goal is to have great racing and we believe we are building a circuit that will deliver just that.

"We are fortunate to be able to bring in someone with Richard's experience to lead a hand-picked team with proven results creating best-in-class racing circuits and fan experiences."
