Can’t be behind Leclerc in Q3, Marko quips

Max Verstappen is aiming for “P2 minimum” from Sunday’s Miami GP, as Red Bull teammate Sergio Perez knocks on the door of his slim championship lead. “You just can’t go on the last lap behind Leclerc these days,” quipped Red Bull’s Dr Helmut Marko, referring to the mistake-prone Monegasque. “It’s great to have Perez on pole,” the 80-year-old added, “but it’s a pity for Max. Even Mexican Perez, on pole, admits he has been behind Verstappen in Miami. “I looked at Max’s data, but I just couldn’t copy what he did,” he said. But all is not lost for Verstappen, who confirmed that the seven cars between his Red Bull and teammate Perez’s should be able to be cleared.
