Mercedes driver George Russell set the pace in Friday practice for the Miami Grand Prix, leading the Ferrari of Charles Leclerc by just over a tenth of a second.

Sergio Perez was Red Bull's best representative in third, while Lewis Hamilton ended up fourth-quickest in the Mercedes.

Reigning champion Max Verstappen couldn't even log a single flying lap in second practice due to reliability issues, having also completed limited running in FP1.
