Max Verstappen shows off just how good a driver he is as he saves himself from a crash during FP3 of the Miami Grand Prix. The Red Bull driver hit a kerb during what was looking to be a very quick lap as Sergio Perez led the timesheet.

Slamming on the Bull’s brakes after it lost control over a kerb, Verstappen managed to stop inches away from the wall suffering no damage apart from a couple of flat spots on his Pirelli tyres.
This came not long after Esteban Ocon lost control of his Alpine at Turn 14 of the track, smashing into the barrier. Fortunately, the driver was okay and has been checked over at the medical centre.
