I rated it a 6 because it was a mostly average race which gains an extra point or two for the unexpected winner. Some good battles down the field though.

Lets give it a 9, why not. I've grown to like the track, bar its surroundings, and a non Verstappen win is rare enough. Plenty of action throughout the field too.

7. First decent race of the year. Still, not a classic. I am sure some people will give it an extra point because Norris won, and maybe another extra point because Verstappen didn't win.... but it was merely a decent race... and yes, I really liked that Norris won and Verstappen did not.

I'm going with a 7 too.

Not memorable as a race. Norris didn't deserve to win *this* race. Before the SC he was nowhere. He got lucky. But an overall deserved win in terms of his career.

The race itself had a bit of track action. More than previous races? (Crap, I can't remember any of them.) It wasn't terrible.

I only had a shorter than usual delayed highlights so I probably shouldn't score it. I'd give it a good 8 or 9 if I did though ;)

9. Best race of the year so far. And the only Miami GP I have enjoyed. Maybe the race itself is a 7, but +1 for non-Max win and +1 for first time winner in Lando! I really enjoyed Piastri's run in the openning laps. He would likely be on the podium (admittedly 3rd) if it was not for the Sainz incident.

There are race highlights available on youtube.

Here are the Miami GP highlights.
Ignore that is says video unavailable,.....just click the "Watch on Youtube" button in the link below and it will open

They are only 8 minutes or so but you get to see the main bits whilst you wait for more comprehensive highlights you mention usually show up on your TV.




Also here are the Sprint Race highlights if you want to atch them.
As above just click the "Watch on YouTube" button

7 Nice to see a new winner

There was lots of passing but most was either messy slow corners or on the straights.

In contrast Vegas had some very high speed passing opportunities that were more reflective of the great road circuits vs the parking lots.

7 for me. Good to see a Lando win at last. Oscar in second for a while, a lot of battles down the field. But not much passing up front and Lando got lucky, so not higher than a 7.

Also I don't know how often the Safety Car comes out at the wrong time, but it seems to happen a lot. Still.
