Formula One - Miami Grand Prix: Everything You Need To Know

Can Sergio Perez bag another win over his teammate?
07:00, 03 May 2023

Red Bull went ‘back to Bak’ in style as Sergio Perez closed the gap on teammate Max Verstappen to six points in the title race with an impressive victory in the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, as the Dutchman was forced into second after an unfortunate safety car. Red Bull may be by far and away the quickest team on the grid this year, but Checo has added some intrigue to what many thought was a foregone conclusion. If Verstappen is to pick up his third consecutive title, he will have to be on top form to hold off his teammate. 

Next, Red Bull’s internal battle heads Stateside as the second ever Miami Grand Prix gets underway. This time, there is real water in the marina, an increased appetite and one of the most celebrity-packed events of the season. Martin Brundle will once again be let loose on the unsuspecting A-listers, with most F1 fans hoping for a repeat of what happened this time last year.

From Brundle to Beckham, here’s everything you need to know about the Miami Grand Prix.
