10 TikToks you will sacrifice sleep for from the Miami Grand Prix

The second instalment of F1 Academy, another Sprint weekend and murals in the magic streets of Miami. This is what TikTok made of our time in the Sunshine State.

After our return to China, where we secured seven points, we headed across the Pacific Ocean for a weekend of magic in Miami.

Hosting round six of the 2024 Formula One World Championship, the modern showpiece that is Miami International Autodrome was the perfect stage for a thrilling Sprint weekend and the second instalment of 2024's F1 Academy season.

We had lots going on in Miami as we took F1 to the streets, from an Aston Martin Aramco F1 show car touring the 305 to I / AM member Erica Soto exploring the ways F1 brings even more energy to the Magic City. And, throughout the exciting week you, our fans, helped to shape our story on TikTok...

1 & 2 | This is art.

Miami's vibrant streets and exciting atmosphere are among the reasons we look forward to returning each year. To play our own part in the 305's vibrance, we tapped into the dynamic art and entertainment scene by combining art with engineering.

3 | Tina gears up for Miami

Ahead of the eagerly anticipated second weekend of F1 Academy, Tina Hausmann geared up for Miami by getting her groove on.

4 & 5 | Behind the scenes in Miami

We welcomed fans, including I / AM members, into the paddock throughout the weekend for an unforgettable experience. Taking them behind F1's velvet curtain with a behind-the-scenes tour of the paddock and the Aston Martin Aramco House, we gave them the opportunity to meet and hear from team members in an access-all-areas visit before we turned up the heat on track in Miami.

One of our Paddock Club guests, @callherlizzy, shared their experience over the weekend.

6 | Sprint quali reaction

After safely getting through to SQ3, all drivers waited until there were four minutes to go in the session before coming out to set a lap. With just one opportunity to post the fastest time, and the out lap being the only chance to get tyres into working window, Lance and Fernando classified P7 and P8 in Sprint Qualifying respectively. @daiatalksf1 reacted to the drivers' results.

7 | Aaron Jones joins us

Minnesota Vikings' running back Aaron Jones brought some serious style with his shades when he joined us and Oakley on the grid before the race.

8 | FOMO

Emma of @tracktalkpod had huge FOMO during the Miami Grand Prix weekend. Find out why.

9 | Peek into a pitstop

Take a closer look at an Aston Martin pitstop for a blink-and-you'll-miss-it display of human and machine in perfect harmony. While it may look smooth, pitstops like this take countless hours of training and practice.

10 | Supercars in the Sunshine State

A stunning V12 Vantage was spotted on display in the Miami paddock during the race weekend. Showcasing 690bhp at 6,500rpm and a top speed of 200mph, the V12 is another example of engineering meets art; with its aggressive, swooping lines, the V12 wouldn't look out of place in an exhibition or on the streets of the 305 in this Q spec Caribbean Blue.
