The Oracle Red Bull Racing-team had a strong weekend in Miami. But, despite winning the sprint race and taking pole position for the Grand Prix, Max Verstappen was beaten on Sunday by Lando Norris, who took his first Grand Prix-victory, with Max finishing in P2.

Team principal Christian Horner reflects after the race: "Firstly, congratulations to McLaren and Lando. They ran a great race and it’s a well deserved victory. Max was a little unfortunate to sustain floor damage when he hit the bollard around the 21st lap, he did well to maintain his position, but it was difficult for him to recover from there."

Horner continues: "We were also a little unfortunate with the safety car today but that’s racing, we still scored the most points in the Drivers' Championship and in the Constructors' so can take that with us back to Europe and the fact that it’s still been a strong weekend."
