F1 Miami Grand Prix: Time, TV and Results

So now it’s a two-horse race. Or a two-Bull race. Whatever.

Sergio Pérez’s victory last weekend in Baku, Azerbaijan, was his second of the Formula 1 season, and it allowed him to match the victory total of his Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen. More important? The result allowed Pérez to close Verstappen’s lead in the drivers’ championship to a mere six points as the series arrived in the United States for Sunday’s Miami Grand Prix.

Since the one sure thing in Formula 1 at the moment seems to be that a Red Bull will finish first, each week now looms as a hinge moment. Pérez starts Sunday with the advantage: He is on pole position, and knows a win will give him the lead in the points race. Verstappen, surely seething after qualifying ninth, will be looking to reassert himself. Driving angry seems to suit the reigning world champion, but weaving through the field — which he did impressively in March in Saudi Arabia — is inherently dangerous.

Buckle up.

Time: The Miami Grand Prix starts at 3:30 p.m. Eastern time. (Global start times are here.)

TV: The race will air on ABC in the United States, which is — DVR alert — a switch from its usual home on ESPN. Coverage starts at 2 p.m. Eastern. Not in America? A full list of Formula 1 broadcasters, wherever you are, can be found here.
