Max Verstappen won the Miami Grand Prix in a masterful performance, using an off-set tyre strategy to beat his teammate Sergio Perez. Verstappen ran a long first stint on hard tyres, pitting 25 laps later than Perez and passing him for the lead a lap later. This victory made it three wins to two in his favor against Perez and extended his championship lead to 14 points.
Fernando Alonso continued his superb season for Aston Martin to take his fourth podium finish in five races with an outstanding performance of his own. George Russell was a strong fourth for Mercedes while Ferrari had a dispiriting afternoon.
