Charles Leclerc was the driver who took pole position in the first GP of Miami, as after an unmistakable lap in his second attempt in Q3 he managed to write a better lap than Max Verstappen, who until then held the temporary pole. The dynamics of Ferrari are sealed by the second place of Carlos Sainz, who pushed the limits of F1-75 and was not far from the first place.
In the second row of the grid will be the two Red Bull drivers, with the Dutch third and Sergio Perez fourth. Verstappen made a mistake in his last attempt in Q3 and failed to improve his fast lap, just 0.005 seconds behind Sainz.
The surprise of the qualifiers came from Valtteri Bottas, who with Ferrari’s new power unit in his Alfa Romeo, managed to score the 5th lap of the season – ahead of Lewis Hamilton, who will start tomorrow from 6th place, although who had to make an extremely fast lap in Q1 to avoid exclusion.
AlphaTauri’s two drivers, Pierre Gasly and Yuki Tsunoda, made it to Q3, with the Frenchman starting in 7th place and the Japanese in 9th. Among them was Lando Norris, eighth, despite reaching 3rd place in Q2. Lance Stroll completed the top 10 for Aston Martin.
