Sprint qualifying is complete at the Miami Grand Prix, with Max Verstappen at the head of the grid for the second Sprint event of F1 2024.

Fresh off the first F1 Sprint weekend of the season in China, the format was back in use for Miami, as the drivers headed into qualifying action after just one hour of practice.

Williams duo Alex Albon and Logan Sargeant dropped out in SQ1, while the Sauber’s of Valtteri Bottas and Zhou Guanyu, plus Alpine’s Pierre Gasly, joined them in elimination.

SQ2 featured a shock double elimination for Mercedes pair George Russell and Lewis Hamilton, with Esteban Ocon, Kevin Magnussen and Yuki Tsunoda also out.

While McLaren’s Lando Norris had led the way up until SQ3, driver and team fell away dramatically upon the switch to soft tyres, leaving Max Verstappen to take pole for the Miami Sprint.
