Max Verstappen wins first Miami GP in front of all-star crowd to close gap on Charles Leclerc as Hamilton finishes 6th

The celebrities all came out too, as F1’s hosted their first GP in the city after what feels like weeks of back-slapping and endless Miami Vice references. Out in front, Verstappen started to close in on Leclerc and eventually made his move on lap nine. The subsequent safety car closed up the gap between Verstappen and Leclerc but when the race did resume on lap 47, the race leader was able to maintain his advantage. Verstappen blasted away from the Ferrari while Perez did his best to get past Sainz. But Leclerc started to fight back, as he looked to have gained a second wind while behind the safety car. Verstappen, who had started third, also scored a bonus point for setting the fastest lap. Verstappen, who looked shattered after the race, said: “It was an incredible Grand Prix and very physical as well.
