Italian Grand Prix - Free practice 2: Charles fastest, Seb third

6 Sep 2019

Charles Leclerc was once again fastest in the second free practice session for the Italian Grand Prix at Monza. In the other Scuderia Ferrari car, Sebastian Vettel was third quickest.

Dodging the rain. In the second 90 minute session, all drivers used dry weather tyres and so Charles and Sebastian were able to evaluate all the compounds available, also simulating a qualifying run, which is when they did their best laps. Charles posted a 1’20”978. He was the only driver to get under the 1m 21s barrier, while Sebastian was third quickest with a 1’21”179. The later part of the session was given over to long runs and by the end, Leclerc had completed 37 laps and Sebastian 39.

Saturday. Tomorrow sees the final free practice session get underway at noon CET, followed by qualifying at 15. The Italian Grand Prix starts at 15.10 on Sunday.
