Confusion on Max Verstappen’s final qualifying lap played into the result. Verstappen took his foot off the pedal in Sector 1 on a potential final qualifying lap, while Leclerc sneaked in and took the fastest lap
Leclerc and Verstappen will each be angling for their third win of the season Sunday: Leclerc, though, holds a 86-59 lead in the driver standings over his Red Bull rival.
Here’s how they’ll line up in Miami:
George Russell was knocked out in Q2, but in quite the role reversal, Lewis Hamilton put himself in position for a chance at a run at a podium on Sunday.
The lineup for the race:
There are 22 events on the F1 schedule for 2022, one race shy of tying the mark for longest F1 calendar.
The season started in Bahrain on March 20 and will end with the now-customary Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, although a bit earlier than usual, in November. This will be the earliest end of the Formula 1 season since it ended on Nov. 4 in 2013.
Returning to the 2022 F1 slate are the Canadian and Japanese Grand Prix, both of which were canceled in 2021 amid fallout from the coronavirus pandemic.
The calendar also holds the maiden voyage for the Miami Grand Prix, the first of two races in the United States in 2022, with the United States GP taking place in October.
The Russian Grand Prix, originally scheduled for Sept. 25, was axed following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Here’s the latest schedule (subject to change):
