Max Verstappen was ‘irritable’ with Red Bull’s ongoing car problems at F1’s Miami Grand Prix despite winning, reveals his dad – who also admits his son ‘made a mistake’ in qualifying

Max Verstappen was ‘irritable’ with his performance at the Miami Grand Prix because of the ongoing problems with his Red Bull car, according to his father, despite winning the race. Verstappen was thought be facing an uphill struggle after missing most of Friday’s practice sessions because of reliability issues with his car. Verstappen did not relinquish his lead and won the race to cut Leclerc’s lead to just 19 points, despite having two DNF’s on his racing record so far this season. Having appeared to resolve the practice session problems, Verstappen was holding pole in qualification until the final laps when Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz both leapfrogged him.
