2024 Miami Grand Prix race report and highlights: Lando Norris beats Max Verstappen for breakthrough maiden F1 victory in action-packed Miami Grand Prix

Written by on May 6, 2024

A Virtual Safety Car was soon deployed to allow a marshal to hop over the wall and retrieve the out-of-place bollard, prompting ‘cheap’ stops for Ocon, Alonso and Magnussen under the caution, with leader Verstappen then pitting at the end of Lap 23 after the VSC had ended.

Piastri, Sainz and Norris all continued up front, rather than immediately following Verstappen onto new tyres, while TV cameras picked up a thrilling four-way scrap involving Ocon, Hulkenberg, Alonso and Gasly as cars filtered back in from their pit stops.

“It’s impossible to see the kerb now in the chicane,” reported Hamilton over the radio, following Verstappen’s moment, before he followed team mate Russell into the pits – the seven-time champion taking on mediums, and the younger Briton moving to hards.

On Lap 27, race leader Piastri decided it was time to pit, followed by Sainz, as both drivers switched to hard tyres and gave Norris a run at the head of the field – leaving the latter, Tsunoda, Zhou and Ricciardo as the only drivers yet to stop.

Moments later, the yellow flags came out – and then a full Safety Car was deployed – for an incident involving Magnussen and Sargeant, playing brilliantly into the hands of Norris, who was now able to complete his pit stop with a much smaller time loss.
