Brendon Hartley 18th in both practice sessions for F1 Spanish Grand Prix

Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton

"You're constantly arriving at each corner and the wind direction is never the same, so we saw lots of drivers going off", Hamilton said.

"I have zero comfortability".

Hamilton leads the German, also a four-time world champion, by four points after four races but owes his advantage to a healthy slice of luck. We recognize that this is only the start of the process and we will immediately get to work with the various community stakeholders, the City of Miami, the Port of Miami, Bayfront Park Management Trust and others, in order to reach a final agreement. What is important is where you are in the end.

Kubica, who suffered horrific injuries in a rally vehicle crash in 2011, said: "I felt embarrassed when I was driving the auto because it was so hard and I felt so slow in some places". I dread the thought of a street circuit like we had with Valencia, that wasn't a great street circuit.

Haas driver Romain Grosjean spun off the track at one stage but recovered to finish seventh-fastest in Catalunya, while McLaren's Fernando Alonso tested the medium tyres and super softs before he ended in 12th.

"At the moment I am punching below my weight, and that is not sufficient to win a world championship", the Briton, a four times champion, told reporters on Thursday.

"But I'm sure as drivers we can give an insight into it and I know Miami quite well".


Hamilton - who has repeatedly named Miami as a dream F1 venue in the past - originally shared his reaction on social media, posting to Instagram: "OK, so I've just seen the design of the Miami track".

The Spaniard, who is yet to qualify in the top 10 this year, added: "Overall I think we are little bit more competitive than any other Friday, so hopefully Q3 tomorrow for the first time is a real possibility".

"But I felt the vehicle better so definitely a step forward. There was a delay, definitely", Alonso said.

The City of Miami Commission and Miami-Dade County unanimously granted their preliminary approval for a proposal to authorise city manager Emilio Gonzalez to negotiate a contract with F1 management by July 1, which was welcomed by the sport.

The plan for now is that the 1st Miami Grand Prix street race will happen in October 2019, around the same time that the US Grand Prix has been run at Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas for the past few years, but the race still has to go through a few more approvals before it's official.

The longest gap between victories in Formula One history was set by Italian Riccardo Patrese, who went 99 races between his 1983 South African victory and 1990 San Marino triumph for Williams at Imola.
