The stewards have been called to deliberate over Carlos Sainz and
Esteban Ocon’s cars after they sustained damage during the first
free practice in Las Vegas. A loose manhole cover caused the
session to be abandoned after both cars were left with damage
minutes into the session. The fate of FP2 in Las Vegas is not yet
known with the session currently delayed while a track inspection
is carried out. Following the incidents, the respective teams have
been forced to make changes to the cars ahead of the remainder of
the weekend. For Sainz’s Ferrari, the Italian squad has been forced
to swap in a new Survival cell, Internal Combustion Engine, Energy
Store and Control Electronics. Ocon’s Alpine also requires a new
survival cell. The matter has been referred to the stewards as such
changes would incur grid penalties under normal circumstances.
