Max Verstappen was celebrated by the international press after his victory at the Miami Grand Prix. The show has seemed a bit unfocused in recent episodes in the US.
International Press Comments on the Miami GP:
USAT today: “South Florida got the first impression of Formula 1. Of course many came to Miami with interest, and of course many went to the fans. This is a fitting link. With a ten-year contract, Miami still has a lot of time to finish the event.
The Wall Street Journal: “Formula 1 found Miami in search of American glamor. Thanks to the popular Netflix series, First Class came to Florida and met many celebrities with its screwdriver image on the dock.”
AD.nl: “Max Verstappen is more American than the Americans. With a football helmet on his head, he’s not a Formula 1 world champion, but he’s celebrated on stage like a quarterback from Limburg. Of course America did it so badly.
D Telegraph: “Master of Concentration. Max Verstappen is cool even in American madness.”
Gazette Dello Sport: “Ferrari is half happy. Verstappen wins, Leclerc fights like a lion. He must settle for a bitter second place.”
