Miami Grand Prix: Sergio Perez on pole & Max Verstappen ninth as red flag curtails qualifying

Verstappen made a mistake on his first run in the final session and when Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc crashed there was no time to resume the session. Lewis Hamilton was knocked out in the second session and will start down in 13th. Both Verstappen and Leclerc were under pressure going into the final runs after making errors in the early part of the session. Verstappen had run wide at Turns Six and Seven and Leclerc brushed the wall at Turn 16. Both needed to deliver on their final runs but Leclerc wrecked the rest of the session for everyone else when, running early, he lost control through the fast Turn Six and spun on the entry to Turn Seven, backing his Ferrari into the wall. Perez had looked out of sorts for much of the weekend but he nailed an excellent lap on the first runs in the final session to put himself in the prime position going into the final runs.
