Flip a coin, and you can decide the winner of this Sunday’s Miami Grand Prix.
It has been a back-and-forth affair through four races so far in the 2022 F1 season. Charles Leclerc took home in the first and third rounds, while Max Verstappen prevailed in the second and fourth rounds. If the trend continues, the Ferrari driver could take home his third race of the year on Sunday.
There will be some challenge in Leclerc and the rest of the F1 arena, however, and it comes in the form of the track. Sunday is the first time that F1 will race in Miami Gardens, Florida for the 2022 Miami Grand Prix, and while the course will lend itself to pace, it may not lend itself to excitement.

Formula 1 Schedule 2022
There are 22 scheduled events on the F1 docket for 2022, a race shying away from tying the mark for the longest F1 calendar.
The season began in Bahrain on 20 March and will end with the customary Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in November, although a little earlier than usual. If the schedule remains in place, it will be the earliest end of the Formula 1 season since it ended on 4 November 2013.
Returning to the 2022 F1 slate are the Canadian and Japanese Grand Prix, both of which were canceled in 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The calendar also marks the first trip to the Miami Grand Prix, the first of two races in the United States in 2022, with the customary United States GP taking place in October.
The Russian Grand Prix, originally scheduled for 25 September, was canceled due to the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
