The 2023 Miami Grand Prix is here and hopefully will bring a little more heat than 2022.
The first Miami race of 2022 was pretty tame until a safety car thwarted Max Verstappen’s best plans; Verstappen took the lead from Charles Leclerc early in the race and held late in the race after a safety car crushed the field on lap 41.
This year, Red Bull looks just as dominant as they did in 2022, although Verstappen and Sergio Perez traded wins back and forth in four rounds in early 2023, with the race for second being Miami’s most intriguing story.

AlphaTauri’s Nyck De-Vries is still looking for his first points on the F1 scene, while Oscar Piastri looks to continue building on a solid start to his F1 career at McLaren.
