1 Miami Grand Prix – LIVE!

Charles Leclerc is out to reassert his authority in the Formula One 2022 world title race with victory in F1’s inaugural race around Miami today.

Saturday qualifying saw the championship leader stick his Ferrari on pole position with a fantastic lap, almost matched by teammate Carlos Sainz to clock a 1-2 for the Scuderia.

In third was Max Verstappen, victorious a fortnight ago in Emilia Romagna where Leclerc spun out late on but with an error of his own as he began his final qualifying lap yesterday.

F1 has served up four memorable races so far, with Red Bull’s unreliability hitting defending champ Verstappen with two retirements already.

But his woes have been nothing compared to that of Lewis Hamilton, who starts a more reasonable sixth in Miami after a dismal weekend at Imola.

Today’s race gets underway at 8.30pm BST and is live on Sky Sports.

The formation lap begins…

Buckle. Up.

Everyone is on the Medium tyres aside from Russell, Ocon, Latifi and the two Aston Martins starting from the pit lane after they suffered a fuel issue ahead of the race – it was not warming up quickly enough and did not meet FIA regulations to make the grid.

There’s a great unknown to how the inaugural Miami Grand Prix will play out. It’s clearly a straight fight between Ferrari and Red Bull but it’s unclear to know who has the best race pace.

Ferrari lacked the straight-line speed of Red Bull but are clearly quicker cornering. Max Verstappen will want to get past at least one Ferrari at the start.

Strategy call

With this the first Miami Grand Prix, it is a bit of a guess as to what will prove quickest around the 57 laps.

A two-stop strategy looks most likely with the Medium tyres on to start and either two stints on the Hard or one Hard and one Medium stint to follow.

Problems for Aston Martin!

Both cars are starting from the pit lane despite Lance Stroll qualifying 10th and Sebastian Vettel 13th.

Stroll says on the grid that he understands it is an issue with the fuel.

I spoke to Ross Brawn earlier today. Formula 1’s managing director said he’d been blown away by the reception for the first Miami Grand Prix.

He said the city had embraced F1 to a degree that had exceeded expectation. Staff at the hotel where he was staying this morning were head to toe in chequered flag clothing this morning.

Qualifying recap

Charles Leclerc claimed pole position for the inaugural Miami Grand Prix in qualifying yesterday.

Ferrari teammate Carlos Sainz trailed by 0.190 seconds with Max Verstappen in third after a dramatic end to qualifying.

The championship leader will start on pole for the third time this season, with all of his wins thus far coming from that position.
