Mexico Grand Prix - Practice 2: Seb fastest, Charles third

25 Oct 2019

Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow’s Sebastian Vettel set the fastest time in the second free practice session for the Mexican Grand Prix, with team-mate Charles Leclerc third.

Quick laps. Both drivers began the 90 minute session still on the Medium tyres: Sebastian posted a 1’18”697 getting down to 1’17”960 on a second run. Charles did a 1’18”183. Once the session resumed after it was red flagged when Alexander Albon went off track, the SF90s went back out on Soft tyres for the first time, as they ran a qualifying simulation. Vettel was quickest at this stage in 1’16”607, with Charles fractionally slower in 1’17”072.

Long run. In the final third of the session the programme as usual switched to race preparation, doing runs with a heavy fuel load. Sebastian started on Medium tyres, before finishing on the Softs, while Charles did the opposite. By the end of the day, the team had got through all its programme without any problems.
