Miami GP Highlights


Last weekend’s Miami GP was packed with frantic action, unexpected events, and hard-fought battles, ending with a victory from Max Verstappen. The Dutch was followed by teammate Sergio Perez and Alonso crossed the finish line in third position.


“Miami Max” Strikes Again

It was a great weekend for Max Verstappen, who started all the way from ninth place, but got his strategy on point, which allowed him to overtake his teammate and take the lead, winning his third race this season and the second Miami GP in a row. Perez started the race on pole position. but was hunted down 10 laps before the end and finished the race in second place.


“I gave it all. I think the first stint was really poor with the graining we had and that compromised quite a lot of the race because we didn’t have too much of a difference. It is a well-deserved win (for Max)”, Perez stated after the race, hailing his teammate.


By Order of Mercedes, Russell beats Hamilton

Hamilton was able to score points this weekend and finished sixth after, starting from P13, but having to let Russell pass him by. Overall, both Mercedes drivers felt great with their comeback performances this weekend. At the end of the race, Russell was thankful for the gesture. This order issued by Mercedes allowed Russell to catch up to Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz and, eventually, to overtake him, ending up in fourth place, a goal that didn’t look much like a possibility at the start of the race.


A Magic Performance by Aston Martin

This weekend was a cheerful one for the Aston Martin team and fans alike. Stroll managed to make up six places from his position in the starting grid, after some exciting overtaking action. For Alonso, it was a comfortable race, which ended up in a third place and the fourth podium of the season for the Spaniard.


“The car is amazing and it was a bit of a lonely race today,” Alonso said, reflecting on a good weekend, but focused on a promising future. “Everything was fine, we take the podium, and going into Imola, Monaco and Barcelona we hope to keep going. At the beginning of the year a podium was amazing, but now we want more.”
