Ferrari’s Sainz and Leclerc Dodge ‘Torpedo’ Perez in Heart-Stopping Miami Grand Prix Start



Ferrari pair Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc express relief at avoiding a collision with 'torpedo' Sergio Perez at the Miami race's outset.

Ferrari racers Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc expressed their relief at narrowly avoiding a collision with the erratic Sergio Perez during the onset of the F1 Miami Grand Prix.

Red Bull's Perez misjudged his braking, missing the initial turn and veering off track, barely missing a collision with his team member Max Verstappen.

The Ferrari pair, Sainz and Leclerc, narrowly avoided a collision with Perez, with the Spanish driver dropping several positions after he decelerated to dodge the erratic Red Bull.

Ultimately, Leclerc secured a third-place finish, trailing behind Lando Norris and Verstappen, with his teammate Sainz crossing the line in fourth place.

"Sainz noted, "I believe today saw everyone pushing themselves to the limit."

"Initially, Checo surged forward at the beginning, reminiscent of the old times with Seb [Vettel], described as 'he charged like a torpedo' and almost dragged everyone along, causing me to drop two spots.

After that point, my pace increased significantly. I managed to conserve my tires and avoided catching up to the Safety Car for an entire lap, a strategy that might have secured us the victory.

Feeling agitated with Oscar, as he evidently led us astray and made us waste time with Charles and Max.

"I noticed that the officials were not strictly enforcing penalties today, which meant I had to take a more assertive approach to push forward."

Leclerc believed Perez was overly ambitious in his efforts to gain an early advantage.

"Following the initial circuit, I was astonished to find myself continuing in the competition given the incident at the first bend," he expressed.

"I believe Checo was overly hopeful. The situation was extremely challenging."

Following that, our speed simply wasn't sufficient. McLaren demonstrated incredible velocity during the race. Lando's performance was truly remarkable.

Our anticipation was high, as we foresaw their formidable strength, particularly Lando's. Interestingly, during SQ2, after Lando completed a lap, it was evident they had exceptional speed. However, that level of performance seemed to vanish, never to manifest again.

Initially, there was uncertainty about whether their performance was a one-off or not, but during the race, they definitely proved to be extremely formidable.

"Lando performed exceptionally well. I'm definitely thrilled for him. Achieving your first victory is always a memorable occasion, and he truly earned it. So, it's wonderful to witness him securing his initial win."
