Horner's Verstappen revelation

Max Verstappen picked up a fair chunk of damage in the Miami Grand Prix, according to Red Bull boss Christian Horner.

An off on Lap 22 at Turn 15 had Verstappen clout the bollard and sustain floor and front-wing damage, to go with that he felt he picked up through Sergio Perez's late-braking move at Turn 1 on the opening lap.

Verstappen finished second for the first time in over a year in a grand prix - as Horner detailed the extent to which the RB20 was wounded.

Perez's near-miss

Perez was fortunate not to collect Verstappen having gone deep on the brakes at Turn 1 on what was a scrappy day for the Mexican in Miami.

He took fourth in the end, but was fifth on the road, only being promoted because of Carlos Sainz's penalty for hitting Oscar Piastri.

He offered his reflections as he ceded more ground to Verstappen in the championship.
