Max Verstappen hoping to close the gap to Charles Leclerc in Miami
Leclerc leads the Championship standings so far with Verstappen behind him. Before Imola, it looked like the Monegasque was running away with the lead. However, a nightmare weekend for him and Ferrari allowed Verstappen to get back in the mix.
In the first ever practice session in Miami on Friday, Verstappen ended FP1 in third behind Leclerc and George Russell. FP2 however, did not prove to be fruitful for him.
Verstappen managed to put in just one lap, before hydraulic issues cut his session short. On top of that, the Miami International Autodrome has been strong for Russell and Mercedes in particular.
If they manage to keep the form up, we could well and truly see three teams in the running for the race win on Sunday. Verstappen himself will be hoping for him and Red Bull to bounce back on Saturday, to get a strong spot for Sunday’s main race.
