Qualifications

Max Verstappen secured his 7th consecutive pole.

This is the longest streak of his career and the longest in F1 since Lewis Hamilton’s seven consecutive in 2015.

This year, Verstappen is undefeated in qualifying (for a Grand Prix on Sunday).

The last driver to have clinched the first six poles of a season? Alain Prost in 1993.

This is the 38th pole position of the Dutchman’s career and the 101st for Red Bull in F1.

Carlos Sainz remains the only driver to have started each race in Miami in the top three.

Red Bull had locked out the front row in the last two Grands Prix, but Sergio Perez finished 4th in Q3.

The two McLaren F1 cars had been eliminated in Q1 in Miami last year; they started in the top 6 this year.

It’s the first time Mercedes has placed both cars in Q3 in Miami.

Nico Hulkenberg qualified 9th for a second consecutive Grand Prix.

Yuki Tsunoda has made it to Q3 four times in the last five races.

Lance Stroll missed Q2 by 0.022s, after failing to improve his time from Q1 to Q2 for the fourth time in the last seven race weekends.

12th place for Pierre Gasly: it’s the best result for Alpine on a Saturday so far… It’s also the first time Gasly has beaten his teammate in qualifying in 2024.

Alex Albon has been eliminated in Q2 every time this year.

Fernando Alonso failed to reach Q3 for the first time in 2024.

Both Sauber cars were knocked out in Q1 for the third time this year.

Logan Sargeant’s 17th place is his best qualifying performance of the season.

Kevin Magnussen suffered his third consecutive Q1 elimination.

Zhou Guanyu finished last in Q1 for the third time in six GPs.

The race

Post-Miami Grand Prix Analysis Key Statistics Unveiled

He did it! Lando Norris won his first Grand Prix in F1 at Miami.

He becomes the 21st Brit and the 114th different driver in history to win a Grand Prix.

Like Patrick Depailler, Jean Alesi, Mika Hakkinen, and Eddie Irvine, Lando Norris had to wait for 15 podiums before tasting victory (a record).

Nick Heidfeld thus reclaims the sad record of the most podiums without a win (13 podiums).

Norris won on his 110th start for McLaren, the same number as Lewis Hamilton with McLaren F1 from 2007 to 2012.

Norris is the first driver to achieve a first win in the United States since Michele Alboreto at Caesars Palace in 1982.

As a reminder, Lando Norris finished 17th at the Miami Grand Prix 2023, 1m 27s behind Max Verstappen.

The British national anthem was heard on the podium for the first time since Sao Paulo 2022.

McLaren has only won its second Grand Prix in the last 12 years (the other was won by Daniel Ricciardo at Monza 2021).

Thanks to McLaren, a Mercedes customer team wins this season before the Mercedes factory team.

McLaren has won in IndyCar, Formula E, and Formula 1 in the last two months.

McLaren achieved its 13th victory in the United States—tying Ferrari’s record. This is its first American win since Lewis Hamilton’s victory in Austin in 2012.

Max Verstappen was on a streak of six consecutive wins in the United States.

The Red Bull driver failed to win a Grand Prix for only the third time in the last 371 days.

The last driver to beat Verstappen in a Grand Prix other than Carlos Sainz was George Russell (Sao Paulo 2022).

The Dutchman has now finished second exactly half as many times as he has finished first in a Grand Prix (29-58).

Max Verstappen has reached his 103rd career podium, which ties him with Kimi Raikkonen in sixth place for the all-time total.

Leclerc has never finished outside the top four in either a Sprint or a Grand Prix this year.

Alpine has scored its first point in 2024.

Lewis Hamilton finished sixth in all three Miami Grands Prix held to date. This is the first time he has finished in the top six of a Grand Prix in 2024.

With a 7th place for RB, Yuki Tsunoda matched his best Grand Prix result in 2024 (he was also seventh in Australia).

Fernando Alonso has scored in all six Grands Prix of the season. Even if it was just a modest 9th place in Miami…
