Formula 1 has arrived in the United States.

On Sunday, the F1 Grand Prix will take place in Miami, Florida. The electric race is set to begin at 3:30 p.m. E.T. It will be televised on ABC. 

It should be a fun day.

Former IndyCar and NASCAR driver Danica Patrick is a part of the call from South Florida.

Unsurprisingly, some fans are split on the idea of Patrick being the "face" of American racing.

Many others, though, are praising her performance on Sunday.

"Danica Patrick at a Formula 1 race weekend seems so natural. When ESPN/ABC renew their deal with Liberty hopefully she can be a focal point of their broadcasts! She's excellent," one fan tweeted.

"Danica Patrick replacing Karun Chandhok and Anthony Davidson is something I can get behind," another fan added.

"Danica Patrick commenting on the Miami race is exactly what I needed. Unmuted the stream for her," one fan wrote.

Hopefully we get a fun day of racing. 

The F1 race is set to begin on ABC.
