Max Verstappen resisted a late Charles Leclerc onslaught to win the inaugural Miami Grand Prix and cut his rival's championship lead.

Verstappen was in supreme form amid an incredible atmosphere at America's new street track and was comfortable after overtaking both Ferraris early on, before a late Safety Car - caused by a dramatic Lando Norris crash - led to a thrilling finale as the field bunched up.

Leclerc, the pole-sitter who lost his lead on Lap 7, suddenly found pace again in the closing stages as F1 2022's title protagonists battled again, but could not get ahead of Verstappen despite getting close with DRS.

I Call True: Seems its going to be a two horse race again this year with Leclerc taking Hamiltons place against Verstappen. most of the action happened further down the field this race though and its was a pretty good one all things considered.

Good to see that even MDM has come to his senses and seen that Hamilton is way off the mark now the cars are on a more equal footing this season.
