Max Verstappen has finished on top in the second free practice session for the Miami Grand Prix, ahead of the two Ferraris of Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc, followed by the second Red Bull of Sergio Perez. It was another good day for Aston Martin as both of their drivers finished in the top ten. Unfortunately, local hero Logan Sargeant was the slowest of the runners in his Williams in FP2 and 19th in the earlier session.
In a heartwarming moment prior to the start of practice, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Tyreek Hill experienced a once-in-a-lifetime moment by sitting in the cockpit of Pierre Gasly’s Alpine during the team’s pitstop practice. Wearing bespoke fire-proof overalls, the ‘Cheetah’ was also enrolled as the Frenchman’s Performance Engineer for the day and helped Gasly warm-up with his tennis ball reaction challenge before he got into the car. Tyreek then watched the action in FP1 unfold from the Alpine garage and gave his friend a good luck message over team radio while he was out on track.
The track action continues tomorrow with FP3 at 12.30pm followed by qualifying at 4.00pm local time.
