Miami GP Chief Defends High Food Prices, Highlights Diverse Ticket and Dining Options Amid Criticism



Sky-high prices for meals, such as $280 lobster rolls, at the Miami Grand Prix have been justified by the event's head.

Tom Garfinkel, the head of the F1 Miami Grand Prix, has stood up for the high costs of the food items that were on sale throughout the event last weekend.

Social media posts brought to light the exorbitant costs of certain food items, showcasing Nachos being sold for $180 and lobster rolls at an astonishing price of $280.

However, Garfinkel, who oversees the F1 race and leads the Miami Dolphins NFL team as the managing partner, argues that the posts misrepresented some of the prices.

"Recently, Garfinkel mentioned to a group of journalists, including those from, about a tweet that was circulating. It displayed a lobster roll priced at $280, but was shared without any remarks," Garfinkel explained. "What was missing from the narrative is that this price was set for a luxury suite."

"A lobster roll, large enough to feed around 10 individuals, was priced at $280."

Pricing for the Miami race has faced criticism since its inaugural event in 2022.

Miami introduced a $150 campus pass, a kind of general admission ticket, offering fans a more budget-friendly option for three-day access.

He expressed enthusiasm, noting, "It was quite a sight, perhaps the first in three years, to observe nearly half of the stadium's 300 level filled with campus pass holders."

He indicates a location just beyond the">king zone for the first turn, highlighting a spectator area equipped with elevated platforms. If one purchases a campus pass for $150 daily, they have the privilege to stand adjacent to the racetrack.

"Elevated seating is available in various sections around the circuit. At the stadium's upper level, you can stroll around, enjoy a comprehensive view of the track, and find that the snack bars are operational, similar to during football games."

Thus, a variety of more affordable choices is available widely across the campus. Additionally, there are pricier alternatives, alongside some exceptionally high-cost options, particularly because the famous New York chef, Mario Carbone, is on-site preparing his signature vodka rigatoni, which comes with a hefty price tag.

Our aim is to offer a variety of choices across the board, and occasionally, individuals may highlight something, labeling it as 'very costly', without offering the perspective that it's actually a lobster roll intended for a group of 10 in a suite, correct?

"Thus, affordable alternatives are also available, which matters to us."

F1 revealed that the Miami Grand Prix weekend in 2024 attracted a full house of 275,000 spectators.
