There were no surprises in the Miami Grand Prix Sprint Race this Saturday. Charles Leclerc tried his luck against Max Verstappen when the lights went out, but the Dutchman elbowed his way to calm the Monegasque's enthusiasm and relegate him to his exhausts.

The Pilot's Threat Ferrari ruled out, the three-time world champion was able to unfold. Never rushed after this first lap, not even at the time of the restart, Max Verstappen sped off alone to win his second Sprint of the season with a little more than 3 seconds in advance. A performance which, however, did not excite the pilot Red Bull, not totally in harmony with his RB20.

« My first impulse wasn't very good at the start, so I had to slow down Charles a little [Leclerc], he confided after the finish. Fortunately everything went well. We then had the safety car, so that slowed everything down a bit. Once the race started again, we were able to gradually increase the gap, but it was not entirely perfect.

We still have a little work left, fortunately with this new format we can still improve the car a little, so we hope to be able to do it for qualifying and especially for tomorrow's race. The victory is good, I'm happy with it, and it gives us a few extra points! »

The action will resume this Saturday evening with qualifying for the Miami Grand Prix, scheduled for 22 p.m.
