After scoring a ninth-place finish in the Miami Grand Prix, thanks partly to Fernando Alonso’s penalty, Albon said his points-scoring finishes

“I don’t even call it luck” that was producing Williams’ good results.

“Clearly less overtaking” than expected in Miami – Gasly

Pierre Gasly felt the Miami Grand Prix didn’t deliver as much overtaking as was expected before the race weekend began.

The AlphaTauri was passed by Lewis Hamilton early in the race. “The battle with Lewis was quite short,” said Gasly. “Then after that, Fernando was stuck behind me for quite a few laps.
