Formula 1 – Miami GP: Verstappen beats Ferrari

Max Verstappen won the Miami Grand Prix. The Red Bull driver won the International Autodrome ahead of his world championship rivals Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz in Ferrari.

Mick Schumacher (Haas) had a dark day. For a long time the German was on his way to getting points, but a few laps before the end he collided with his compatriot Sebastian Vettel (Aston Martin) and fell to the end of the field. Even Vettel could no longer intervene decisively in the race – Heppenheimer had to stop his car. “I didn’t see that!” Vettel protested on the radio. “That was clearly my turn,” Schumacher shouted.

Mick’s uncle, Ralf Schumacher, assessed the situation as “kind of a racing accident”. “Mick should give it a try there. But you can see he’s a little hesitant. Maybe he shouldn’t have done it because he could have had a curve. Braking a little later, he says. But Sebastian has to let go sometimes. He can’t disappear into thin air. Sebastian has to look in the mirror, that’s how it is. An unfavorable situation,” he said. sky.

Vettel later apologized via sky in Schumacher. “It’s stupid and bitter for both of us,” Heppenheimer said. “I’m sorry we went out together, I thought I got the curve, when I saw it it was too late.” “It’s unfortunate, very unfortunate for both of us,” Schumacher said. “I will definitely talk to him about it,” he declared.

The mood in race winner Verstappen was better. “I think I need a drink,” world champion Verstappen said on the radio after his second straight win. With this victory, the Dutchman reduced the difference against Leclerc in the World Cup to 19 points. “It was very stressful, but I am very happy with this win,” Verstappen said.

Former world champion Lewis Hamilton finished sixth at Mercedes, behind teammate George Russell.
