Charles Leclerc has ended the second practice session from the Las
Vegas Grand Prix on top of the timesheets. After a delay of two and
a half hours, the second practice outing got underway at 02:30
local time. FP1 was abandoned when Carlos Sainz and Esteban Ocon’s
cars sustained damage after running over loose drain covers in the
early stage of the session. Following a track inspection, the
second practice outing got underway and was extended to 90 minutes
to compensate for the missed track time from earlier in the
evening. Ferrari managed to repair Sainz’s car and got him back out
on track for FP2, albeit with a grid penalty for taking on new
parts. The Spaniard ended the session in second place behind his
team-mate while compatriot Fernando Alonso rounded out the top
three. FP1 concerns not repeated With FP1 seeing next to no
running, teams were keen to log as much data as possible during the
second practice outing. As the track got faster and the drivers
dialled themselves into a new race track, the times constantly
ticked down with no concerns raised over loose manhole covers. In
the early stage of the session, a number of drivers locked up and
ran wide but were able to avail of the run-off area to keep out of
the barriers. As they got up to speed on the track, Red Bull’s best
efforts saw it end up in fourth and sixth with Sergio Perez leading
Max Verstappen. Valtteri Bottas split the pair, with Nico
Hulkenberg ending up in seventh place running the old-specification
Haas car. Lance Stroll was eighth, while Lewis Hamilton and
Alexander Albon rounded out the top 10.
