Formula 1 – Miami GP: Verstappen overtakes Ferrari

Max Verstappen won the Miami Grand Prix. The Red Bull driver won at the Autodromo Internazionale ahead of World Championship rivals Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz in Ferrari.

Mick Schumacher (Haas) had a bad day. The German was in the running for points for a long time, but with a few laps to go he collided with fellow countryman Sebastian Vettel (Aston Martin) and slipped to the back of the pack. Not even Vettel was able to intervene decisively in the race anymore: the Heppenheimer had to park his car. “I did not see it!” Vettel protested on the box radio. “That was clearly my turn,” Schumacher exclaimed.

Mick’s uncle, Ralf Schumacher, rated the situation as “a bit of a racing accident”. “Mick has to try it there. But you can see he’s hesitating a bit. Maybe he shouldn’t have done it because he could have had the curve. Braking a little later, like he says. But Sebastian has to leave room sometimes. in nothing. Sebastian has to look in the mirror, that’s it. Unfavorable situation, “he said Sky.

Vettel later apologized through Sky to Schumacher. “It’s stupid and bitter for both of us,” said Heppenheimer. “I’m sorry we’re both out, I thought I had the curve, when I saw it it was too late.” Schumacher said it was “a pity, a great pity for both of us”. “I’ll definitely talk to him about it,” he announced.

Race winner Verstappen’s mood was better. “I think I need a drink,” world champion Verstappen told the radio after his second consecutive win. With the victory, the Dutchman reduced the gap to Leclerc in the World Cup to 19 points. “It was very tiring, but I am very happy with this victory,” said Verstappen.

Former world champion Lewis Hamilton finished sixth in the Mercedes behind teammate George Russell.
