F1, Sprint Qualifying: here's who took pole position

F1 is on stage in the USA for the Miami GP where the qualifying sessions that will define the grid for tomorrow's sprint race have recently concluded. Max Verstappen will take first place tomorrow

The sprint qualifications have just ended Miami GP 2024 F1. A track that appears very slippery from the first laps of the single-seaters and with an important evolution of the track. Already from SQ1 we can see a session that promises to be very tight, with the times marking fuchsia in turn between the drivers at each time trial.

We find that we do not access the second session Albon, Gasly, Zhou, Bottas and the home pilot Logan Sargeant. In the first session he surprises McLaren with Lando Norris (1.27.939) e Oscar Piastri (1.28.056) at the top. This weekend, the American papaya team brought many updates that changed the look of the MCL60 both externally and under the body. Ferrari it seems that, as usual at this start of the season, the first sectors suffer a lot and then recover in the rest of the track.

In the 10 minutes available to the drivers in the second session there was certainly no shortage of news. McLaren and especially Lando Norris fly on the Miami circuit. Disappointment for the Mercedes drivers who instead remain excluded and will therefore not access SQ3. Together with them also Ocon, Magnussen and Tsunoda. Worth noting is the excellent performance of the Haas driver Nico Hulkenberg that passes the cut and of Daniel Ricciardo in fifth position.

In the last 8 minutes of SQ3 he won pole position at the end Max Verstappen with a time of 1.27.641. Disappointment for McLaren that he had dominated the entire session of qualification up to that point but Plates and Norris will depart respectively in sixth and ninth position. Second position for a Leclerc who is definitely on the ball and closes to a tenth from Dutch times.

Third Sergio Perez, fourth was a fantastic Ricciardo with Racing Bulls. The other Red rider was fifth Carlos Sainz.
