Formula 1 has reached an agreement in principle to host a race at Miami's Hard Rock Stadium from 2021.

The proposed grand prix on a track around the stadium, that is the home of the Miami Dolphins, would be a second F1 race in the United States, alongside the US Grand Prix at Austin's Circuit of The Americas.

It is subject to a vote by the Miami-Dade County on October 28. A statement released by F1 managing director of commercial operations, Sean Bratches, and Tom Garfinkel, the vice chairman and chief executive of the Miami Dolphins and the Hard Rock Stadium, said: "We are thrilled to announce that Formula One and Hard Rock Stadium have reached an agreement in principle to host the first-ever Formula One Miami Grand Prix at Hard Rock Stadium."

If the race is given the go-ahead, F1 will return to Florida for the first time since the 1959 US Grand Prix at Sebring.
