An update from free practice at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace for the Brazilian Grand Prix.
It was a very rainy Friday morning in São Paulo which limited running in Free Practice One at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace. The tricky conditions required extreme wet tyres at the start of the session with some drivers opting to try the intermediate tyre towards the end.
Alex set the fastest time of the session, a 1:16.142, on those intermediate tyres and completed 9 laps in total. Max only completed the 3 laps and did not set a time. Some teams tried slicks at the very end of the session including both Bulls. But the track proved to be too wet still with several drivers spinning off including Max and Alex. Both of them are ok and will be hoping conditions improve for the second practice session this afternoon...
Fortunately the track did dry out for Free Practice Two and the drivers were able to head out on slick tyres for the afternoon session. Max completed a total of 33 laps with a best time of 1:09.351 putting him P3. Meanwhile, Alex completed 31 laps with a best time of 1:10.275 putting him in P9.
Saturday's final practice session saw Max finish P2 completing a total of 18 laps with a best time of 1:08.346. On the other side of the garage Alex compelted a total of 17 laps finishing P5 with a 1:09.136.
