Charles Leclerc led Ferrari teammate Carlos Sainz to a front row lockout at the 2022 Miami GP with a blistering lap in Qualifying.
After Max Verstappen had laid down a marker in the first runs, Leclerc went two tenths faster in the final moments, with Sainz also leapfrogging the Red Bull driver after he pulled out of his final run.
It was heartbreak for Mercedes’ George Russell and the McLaren of Daniel Ricciardo in Q2, with the pair eliminated along with Sebastian Vettel in the Aston Martin, and Fernando Alonso just missing out in 11th.
