2021 Formula One Saudi Grand Prix, 2nd Free Practice

The second free practice of the 2021 Formula One Saudi Arabian Grand Prix has already started in the light, with an air temperature of 28 degrees Celsius and an asphalt temperature of 30 degrees.

The field, which had begun in the light, continued on the Corniche race track in Jeddah, with the difference that this time the conditions were more authoritative: the Sunday race will start after dark. After sunset, the number of errors multiplied, we could see more braking and leaving the track. In addition to these, the traffic was also a problem for the pilots, they had to give up a number of quick laps to the riders due to the slow dusting in front of them. All this, coupled with unpredictable bends, has given birth to dangerous situations more than once.

George Russell of Williams was hampered once at work by a brake circuit problem, but he didn’t have to miss much about it either. Mick Schumacher touched the wall with the Haas, the German had just avoided the snap. His teammate Nikita Mazepin spun at a slow pace once, but nothing and no one was harmed.

Aside from all this, the practice went smoothly until the last minute, when the back of Charles Leclerc’s Ferrari slipped out and there wasn’t much left of the car after it slammed into the wall. He got out of the wreck in Monaco.

With that snap, Lewis Hamilton won the training in front of Valtteri Bottas. Behind the Mercedes pair was not the energy drink car everyone was expecting: Pierre Gasly was third, not a tenth of a second behind the seven-time world champion.

Max Verstappen finished fourth with Red Bull, and his gap was not two-tenths. He was followed by two Alpine riders, Fernando Alonso and Esteban Ocon. Ferrari’s best was Carlos Sainz in seventh place, and Cunoda Juki (AlphaTauri), Sergio Perez (Red Bull) and Leclerc were in the top ten.

The complete result list

The program of the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix will continue with the third free practice from 3 pm Hungarian time on Saturday, the time trial will start at 6 pm.
