The Miami GP is almost a surety for the 2019 season and a proposed track layout is also available for fans to see and comment on.
Hamilton though wants drivers to be involved in the designing of new circuits as they may have inputs that could help enhance the race experience for all the stakeholders.
He cited the example of golf to try and put some impetus behind his claim. He also wanted to take everyone down memory lane and remind them of the disaster that was ‘Valencia’.
“I don’t get why, for example, in golf you get all the great golfers who design golf courses, and then you’ve not got any of the top racing drivers ever in history who ever designed a race track,” said Hamilton.
“Not that we’re designers or anything, but [we’ve not been asked for] our input or anything like that.
“Miami is a super cool place, and I was very, very excited to hear about it, and then I saw the layout.
“I think it could be a lot more fun. You’ve got two of the longest straights, but maybe when we drive it, it will be more fun.
“I dread the thought of a street circuit like we had with Valencia, which wasn’t really a great street circuit. It can be very hit and miss, but maybe it’s a hit.” he added.
Hamilton has also made it clear that he is up to help the track designing committee whenever needed.
“I don’t want to make an assumption before we’ve even driven it, but if there’s time, and anyone wants to approach me or any of the drivers, I’m sure we could give some good insight into what the layout’s like, and how it could be better.
“I know Miami quite well. There’s a few better locations to put the track, for example.” he concluded.
