Max Verstappen has put his Red Bull Racing car on pole position for Saturday’s Sprint at the Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix.

It was a bit touch and go as Max made a mistake and yet still nabbed pole leaving him to wonder, “what happened to the other cars”. Clearly he felt his mistake would cost him pole but it didn’t.

Charles Leclerc has had a ragged start to the weekend but recovered to start in P2 for the Sprint followed by Sergio PERez in his Red Bull.

Mercedes, despite bringing upgrades to their car, were left outside looking in on SQ3 with a very difficult day at the office and McLaren looked very racey up until SQ3 where they fell back to P6 and P9 for Oscar Pisatri and Lando Norris respectively.
