F1 fans ruthlessly troll Miami Grand Prix’s FAKE marina with hilarious memes as supporters slam ridiculous price of race

FORMULA ONE fans had a blast over the fake marina at the upcoming Miami Grand Prix.

Cashing in on F1's booming popularity in the United States, it will host the inaugural Miami GP this week.

It is set to be an extravagant show – with a gondola that goes across the track and a fake marina.

A handful of super-yachts that have been craned into place with sparkly blue tinfoil placed around their hulls to make it look like water.

And fans enjoyed the memes on social media ahead of the weekend's festivities in Florida.

Many laughed that the race winner would attempt to jump into the lagoon.

One user said: "I mean they were bragging about highlights like this little marina… now they gotta live with these memes about it."

Another added: "There should be a dedicated chanel to see what people are up to around the fake marina."

A major sticking point for fans is the cost of the showcase event.

On Twitter, a user said: "I think it's almost $10k for yatch club tickets."

Another claimed: "It's too f***ing expensive!! I'm travelling to Montreal now, (next year Mexico) and it's way cheaper than stays + tickets for the USA Races."

One added: "It's a joke. A Silverstone weekend is expensive but not that expensive.

"We happen to be in Miami next weekend and I looked at going, no way I'm paying those prices. There's no justification for those prices."
