"This looks like a cross between Baku, Caesars Palace and Mexico"- Charles Leclerc hits 320 km/h in his F1-75 around Miami on the new F1 game

F1 released a video showing Charles Leclerc clocking a speed of 320 km/h in his F1-75 around Miami in the new Formula 1 game. 

Ahead of the Miami GP this weekend, fans are wondering how fast cars can go around the circuit. It’s a newly constructed track, in downtown Miami that has been built around the world famous Hard Rock Stadium.

There are 19 turns in the circuit, with three DRS zones and one of the straights is 1.2 km long. But since cars haven’t taken to the track as of yet, it’s tough to correctly predict the top speed these drivers will reach.

F1 however, provided us with some insight as to what we can expect. On their newly launched game F1 22, cover star Leclerc took his Ferrari for a spin around the track. It’s a part of the early access of this game, that some people have got their hands on.

Leclerc took this opportunity to show fans around the Miami International Autodrome. The initial reactions of the public has been mixed. Some feel it’s a fast and exhilarating circuit, whereas others called it out for it’s lack of uniqueness.
