Max Verstappen in front of everyone, as usual, for the sixth time this season in as many rounds contested. For this Miami Grand Prix, this Sunday May 5 (10 p.m.), the Red Bull driver is ahead of the Ferraris of Charles Leclerc (2e) and Carlos Sainz (3e).

Alpine’s first points?

The race will be important for Alpine, which has never placed a car so close to the points, that of Pierre Gasly (12e). Esteban Ocon (13e) is just behind to ensure the success and bring back the first long-awaited points for the French team this season…

But among those trapped earlier in qualifying, there were some good people, like Daniel Ricciardo (Racing Bulls), only 18e on this starting grid but author of a 4e place on the sprint format… The top speed of Alexander Albon (Williams, 14e) on this Miami circuit also allows him to aim for a return to the points. Find the complete starting grid.
