Even though Diplo wasn’t invited to play at the official Miami F1 Grand Prix party, the American DJ made sure he doesn’t miss the chance to show off his skills. As the 43-year-old hopped from party to party around Hard Rock Beach Club, he ended up playing a set until 3 AM.

However, Diplo’s experience at the race venue wasn’t the way he had initially expected. Moreover, the celebrity artist had little idea about Formula 1 as a sport. In a report by New York Times, the showstopper conveyed, “I still don’t know anything about F1. I don’t care about Formula 1 at all, but I care about parties.”

Diplo however, criticized the Red Bull box inside the race venue. The box was sponsored by energy drink-based team and had limited capacity. Talking about his experience inside, Diplo further stated, “It was this bad box, like a jail. Also, they had no food, and all I wanted was a sandwich, so I left.”

A woman came over to us, and I thought she was going to kick us out, but she was just like, ‘I see you have some extra friends here. Ferrari had already tagged me on social media, so I knew I would be fine,”
