Last Sunday Max Verstappen defended himself from the pressure of Charles Leclerc in the last part of the race and took victory in the Formula 1 Miami Grand Prix. Although it was a very exciting day, those of the McLaren team did not they had the expected performance and Lando Norris and Daniel Ricciardo were left with the desire to integrate the podium. However, they confessed that they enjoyed the city and even had crazy parties.
The Grand Prix ended with Verstappen’s victory escorted by Leclerc, Sainz Jr., Pérez and George Russell’s Mercedes completed the top five. In the meantime, Ricciardo added 11 points in the five races that have been disputed to date and the British is in seventh position with a total of 35 points, thanks to the podium harvested at the Imola GP.
Beyond the fact that the performance is not ideal, they allow themselves to enjoy other spaces and, according to the Daily Star news portal, both took advantage of the facilities. At first they were partying in the hotel pool, but both pilots ended up expelled shortly after arriving.
“First, they kicked us out of the pool. We were being naughty and got kicked out. So afterwards we went up to the rooms and had a nice party. I apologized if there were disturbed people upstairs and downstairs. But yes, it was a lot of fun.” Norris said in the interview.
Although neither of them wanted to give many details about their stay, Ricciardo was encouraged to reveal: “I didn’t just trash the room, I trashed the entire floor.” It will be necessary to see if the team rejects or supports this type of activity, but so far there has been no type of statement.
Meanwhile, in the championship, Charles Leclerc remains the leader with 104 points, followed by Verstappen with 85 and Pérez with 66. The next Formula 1 date will be May 22 at the Spanish Grand Prix.
