Verstappen quickest, Leclerc crashes in ‘slippery’ Miami GP practice

WORLD champion Max Verstappen of Red Bull set the fastest time in yesterday’s practice for the Miami Grand Prix while Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc suffered a crash into a barrier on a track which several drivers described as “slippery”.

After Mercedes enjoyed a 1-2 effort in the opening session, with George Russell leading the way from Lewis Hamilton, Verstappen, the current championship leader, responded emphatically with an impressive best lap time of 1:27.930.
