F1i's Driver Ratings for the 2022 Miami GP

Kevin Magnussen (P16): 5.5/10
Reality is starting to reassert itself for Kevin Magnussen after the early days of his dream return to F1. Although he was in the top ten in both of Friday's practice sessions and on Saturday morning, Haas just didn't really seem on it in Miami. The early pace indeed proved somewhat illusory when he missed the cut at the end of the first round of qualifying (while Mick Schumacher just scraped through). Although he made early progress and was up to P11 by lap 6, the decision to make an early pit stop sent him tumbling back down the order where he and Schumacher became stuck behind Sebastian Vettel, who was going for an extended first stint on hard tyres. Magnussen finally got past on lap 27 but then found himself behind Sebastian Vettel, and with Schumacher making life difficult by continually snapping at his heels and eventually passing him on lap 34. Magnussen made an extra pit stop under the safety car but it didn't pay off. Instead it was Vettel and Schumacher's late clash that helped the Dane, and a pass on Daniel Ricciardo boosted him to P13. Unfortunately a penultimate lap dispute with Lance Stroll resulted in a five second penalty that meant he was classified three places lower than expected.

Mick Schumacher (P15): 5.5/10
It was a lively weekend for Mick Schumacher, who seems to have finally reached the point in his F1 career where he feels able to throw the car into battle when opportunities present themselves. Although not always to good or wise effect, it has to be admitted. After a quiet Friday he was sixth in final practice and made the cut at the end of the first round of qualifying (unlike Kevin Magnussen) to line up in 15th position on the grid. Both Haas drivers made up three places on the first lap (admittedly in part thanks to the absence of both Aston Martins on the grid) and then opted to be among the first to stop for hard compound tyres. Schumacher followed in the tyre tracks of his team mate as they slogged their way through a congested midfield, and then took point for the first time on lap 34 putting him into 12th. He stayed out during the safety car and by lap 54 he was in ninth with points very much there for the taking - until he ran into the side of Sebastian Vettel going into turn 1. The Aston Martin limped to the pits to retire, with Schumacher's glittering points finish also a long distant memory by the time the chequered flag came out. He was lucky the stewards decided not to investigate the collision further.
