With the US market ever more clued into Formula One, the inaugural Miami Grand Prix this weekend brought the names of Charles Leclerc and Max Verstappen front and centre to the excited US fans. Monaco, its Monegasque ace and Ferrari are now more than ever brand names in the United States.

They were ahead of Verstappen who made a costly last-lap error dropping him from winning pole to third.
