- Leclerc seals Miami pole with fastest lap of 1min 28.796sec
- Carlos Sainz second, Max Verstappen third, Sergio Pérez fourth
Charles Leclerc claimed pole for the inaugural Miami Grand Prix with another demonstration of superb precision, executed flawlessly for Ferrari driving on what is a testing track that has been punishing drivers across the weekend. His title rival Max Verstappen was pressured into a small error that cost him and he could manage only third, with Leclerc’s teammate Carlos Sainz in second, while the audience at the Miami International Autodrome’s first competitive session boisterously revelled in the show they put on.
Lewis Hamilton, who had been hoping for some improvement from Mercedes this week, improved on his recent qualifying form with sixth place but his team remain eight-tenths back from the leaders.
