What happened in last year's Miami GP?

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen won the race from ninth on the grid, after making a mistake in the final part of qualifying, which was ended prematurely by Charles Leclerc crashing his Ferrari.

Polewinner Sergio Perez led the majority of the race in the other Red Bull, but Verstappen used a tyre strategy advantage to pass his team-mate with 10 laps remaining to win by over 5s.

Fernando Alonso was a distant third for Aston Martin.

Can I stream live F1 races in America?

Viewers in the United States can subscribe to F1 TV (f1tv.formula1.com) to stream the race on a device of their choice or via ESPN’s digital platform (espn.com/watch) with subscriptions.

All sessions will be streamed on the ESPN app and be available on demand, while ESPN’s TV broadcasts are available via YouTube TV, Hulu + Live TV, and Sling (depending on subscription plans).
