Formula 1’s latest effort to raise its profile in the United States will take place in the build-up to this week’s Miami Grand Prix.
Step-by-step Formula 1 is working toward becoming the most popular form of motorsports in America and they are attacking it at all angles.
On May 4 in Miami, F1 and Custom Events from WSJ, will bring together trailblazers from the worlds of sports, entertainment and business to discuss how they can make a significant impact on the future of technology, performance, diversity and sustainability, not only in their own business but across industries and culture.
