5:08 p.m. FINISH: Max Verstappen takes the win, with Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz rounding out the podium.

5:06 p.m.: Max Verstappen is in the driver’s seat for the win at Miami, unless he hits a wall. A very nice day for Red Bull — and also for Ferrari, who will finish 2-3.

5:04 p.m.: Mick Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel collide in Lap 56. Vettel’s day is done. Schumacher sounds broken up on team radio.

5:00 p.m.: Leclerc is pushing Verstappen for first. Within a second with four laps to go. Sainz holding off Perez in third.

4:43 p.m.: Safety car is deployed on the following lap to give the marshals an opportunity to clean debris off the track.

4:36 p.m. VSC: Lando Norris loses a tire and goes spinning around the track. He looks OK. Pierre Gasly didn’t see Norris, and made contact with him coming out of a turn. Lots of drivers pitting for fresh tires, including Russell, who called his shot earlier in the race.

4:31 p.m.: 19 laps remain, and Verstappen put the hammer down on a 1:32 lap. Leclecr nearly eight seconds behind the leader in second.

4:28 p.m.: Rain in the forecast, but it might not make a difference with the track temperature.

4:25 p.m.: Fastest lap is currently held by Charles Leclerc. George Russell is up into fifth place now. Quite the drive from him.

4:16 p.m.: Carlos Sainz with a slow, slow stop, and Sergio Perez enters the pits right behind him. The gap closes a bit.

4:14 p.m.: Verstappen enters and exits the pits with a clean stop, and now on the hard tires.

4:11 p.m.: Charles Leclerc heads into the pits for a fresh set of hard tires after a radio message criticizing the car. Leclerc exits the pits in fourth.

4:08 p.m.: Hamilton comes in for a clean pit-stop. He exits the pit for a fresh set of hards.

4:07 p.m.: The top five entering Lap 23: Max Verstappen, Charles Leclerc, Carlos Sainz, Sergio Perez, Valtteri Bottas. Hamilton and Russell follow in sixth and seventh.

4:04 p.m.: Sergio Perez is adamant he’s losing power on team radio, but his race engineer assures him there’s no issue. Perez says he’s losing power on the straights, and he’s currently sitting in fourth.

4:02 p.m.: A slower pit stop for Lando Norris, who currently sits in 15th place. Teammate Daniel Ricciardo.

4:01 p.m.: George Russell up into the points now with the hard tire settling in on this track.

4:00 p.m.: Fernando Alonso gets stuck in the pit, with issues with his right rear tire.

3:58 p.m.: A lot more overtaking than some may have expected entering this race, with the back half of the grid fighting for position.

3:54 p.m.: George Russell inching closer to the points, now sitting in 11th place after starting 12th. He dropped three spots early in the race.

3:52 p.m.: The first pit stop of the day, with Yuki Tsunoda pitting for hards on Lap 12.

3:48 p.m.: Even with DRS and the advantage of a slipstream, the Ferrari doesn’t have the pure straight-line speed that Red Bull has. Still a 3-to-4 mph advantage for the Red Bull on the straights.

3:46 p.m.: With Leclerc having some tire damage, Verstappen takes the lead in Lap 9. Straight-line speed from Red Bull makes the difference.

3:44 p.m.: We have our first retirement of the day, with Zhou Guanyu heading into the garage for an unknown issue. Rough for the Alfa Romeo driver.

3:42 p.m.: Leclerc still in first, with Verstappen hot on his tail. Gap at 1.1 seconds in Lap 7.

3:40 p.m.: First-lap replay shows Alonso and Hamilton coming together for some light touching.

3:35 p.m.: Alonso off to a great start, picking up four spaces. Meanwhile, due to a pre-race fuel issue, Lance Stroll and Sebastian Vettel fall to the back of the grid.

3:33 p.m.: It’s lights out and away we go. Leclerc and Sainz get off to a good start, but Verstappen takes second after the first turn. Great start for the Red Bull driver.

3:00 p.m.: Pole-sitter looks pretty comfortable:
