Mexico Grand Prix - Practice 1: Charles 2nd, Sebastian 6th

25 Oct 2019

Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow drivers, Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel finished second and sixth fastest respectively come the end of the first free practice session for the Mexican Grand Prix.

Wet start. At the start of the session Charles and Seb both took to the track on intermediate tyres, given that the track still had some damp patches after heavy overnight rain. The first half hour was therefore given over to practice starts and “out and in laps” without setting times. When the track was dry enough, both SF90s were fitted with the Medium tyres, the only compound the team ran this morning.

44 laps. Charles did a total of 23 laps, the quickest in 1’17”446, the second fastest of the session. Sebastian was sixth, doing 21 laps, the best in 1’18”218. The second session gets underway at 14 local (17 CET.)
