The format for the press conferences in Miami is known. Max Verstappen takes his seat in the second group of five drivers and is joined by Valtteri Bottas, among others.

On Friday morning, the drivers will once again line up for the press conference. Although there has been much criticism of the format, it remains in place for now. Before the first free practice, the drivers have to report in groups of five for the press conference and the journalists have half an hour to ask questions.

Verstappen is in the second group this weekend with Bottas, Yuki Tsunoda, Esteban Ocon and Kevin Magnussen. The Dutchman is looking forward to the weekend in Miami and arrives in America with a good feeling. The Red Bull driver won the last race by a large margin and the RB18 seems to suit his driving style better and better.

On Saturday there is also a press conference for the team bosses. There it is two groups of three. First, Laurent Rossi (CEO Alpine), Zak Brown (CEO McLaren) and Toto Wolff (team principal Mercedes) sit down, then Frederic Vasseur (team principal Alfa Romeo), Guenther Steiner (team principal Haas) and Christian Horner (team principal Red Bull) are given time to answer questions.
