F1 2023 Miami GP Starting Grid – Final Grid Positions

Red Bull’s Sergio Perez produced the best time in qualifying to start first on the grid for the 2023 Miami GP, ahead of Fernando Alonso in the Aston Martin


In a dramatic qualifying session for the 2023 Miami GP, it was Sergio Perez of Red Bull who produced the fastest time to take firs place on the starting grid, with Fernando Alonso in the Aston Martin alongside the Mexican on the front row in Florida. 

The Miami GP qualifying session was brought to an abrupt halt when Charles Leclerc stuck his Ferrari into the barrier, before the field could start their second flying runs, and before Max Verstappen has posted a time in his Red Bull

That meant those who did manage to put a time up earlier on in Q3 benefitted, namely Perez, Alonso, and Carlos Sainz in the second Ferrari, as well as Kevin Magnussen in the Haas who starts fourth on the grid. 

Verstappen, who leads the driver standings by six points from his Red Bull teammate Perez, will start from ninth on the grid, just behind Leclerc. Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton had a disastrous qualifying session, failing to make it out of Q2, and will line up 13th on the grid.
