Verstappen Embraces Second at Miami, Sees Positives


Max Verstappen, Red Bull’s ace, took second place in Miami with grace, highlighting the ups and downs of racing and the value of consistent championship points.

Max Verstappen finished second in the Miami Grand Prix after leading the early part of the race. Emerging second after his pit stop, he suffered from a slower pace and an opportune timing by Lando Norris with the safety car. However, he is content with a second place that allows him to extend his lead in the championship.

“We win, we lose, we’re all used to it in competition,” notes Verstappen. “It was tricky today, even on mediums, it didn’t seem fantastic. I was barely hanging on. And once we pitted, I heard the times McLaren was making, and I thought they were fast.”

“Once they switched to the hard tires, they had more pace, especially Lando who was flying. It was incredibly difficult for us in this stint, but if a second place is a bad day, I’ll take it. I’m happy for Lando, it’s been a long time, he deserves it, and there will be more.”

Asked about his struggles, he is not worried but aims to improve by Imola: “There was very little grip on all four wheels, and that’s something we need to understand. McLaren brought an upgrade that works, and we have work to do. It wasn’t our best weekend, and we need to figure out what happened.”
