Pierre Gasly annihilated by Cheetah in Miami

The Miami Grand Prix made its debut in the early stages of last season.

With only 100 days to go until the Miami Grand Prix makes its second appearance in Formula 1, Alpine driver Pierre Gasly has headed over to the city to visit the Miami Dolphins’ Baptist Health training complex.

The Frenchman had a laugh and a joke with some members of the team before challenging NFL speedster Tyreek Hill to a 100-yard race.

To absolutely nobody’s surprise, Gasly was annihilated in the race with the man nicknamed ‘The Cheetah’, with Hill going on to sign a jersey for the Alpine driver, joking that his feet are faster than Gasly’s car.

The Miami Grand Prix was a huge success last season, with the drivers experiencing a whole new level of fame over the course of the weekend.

An abundance of celebrities were present for the event and the drivers were part of an amazing on-stage show before the race weekend got underway, with thousands in attendance.

During his visit to Miami, Gasly has said that he is looking forward to when F1 travels to the circuit for the second Miami Grand Prix, even looking to secure a podium this time around.

“I’m super excited as last year this was one of the most epic races on the calendar,” said the Frenchman via GPFans.

“There is a great hype around the event, as it’s not just about the race – it’s the whole weekend – the energy and the atmosphere.

“The race track is cool, very technical and what matters to me is winning, so I’m getting prepared to hopefully leave Miami in May with a trophy in our hands.

“Last year was a huge success and definitely I’m looking forward to racing in Miami again this season.”

It was Max Verstappen who stood on the top step of the podium following the first ever Miami Grand Prix, as the Dutchman began to get his title charge back on track following a slow start under the new regulations.

The winner of this year’s race is currently impossible to predict however, as both Ferrari and Mercedes are confident of challenging Red Bull this season, after struggling with a multitude of issues in the first year of F1’s new era.
