Australian Grand Prix: The second part of the free races

Australian Grand Prix: The second part of the free races

March 15, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

Already in the first training, the riders drove faster than a year ago, and in the second state of the route improved, the asphalt was covered with waste rubber, and the speeds increased.

The temperature of asphalt has increased, many have worked in long series of circles, assessing tire wear in conditions closer to those expected on Sunday – the forecast promises hot weather on the day of the race.

The session was calm. Debutant Toro Rosso Alexander Elbon flew in the 15th turn, but unlike the morning workout – without consequences for the car. Antonio Giovinazzi was also deployed there – and also without consequences. Russell barely avoided contact with the barrier after taking off in the third turn.

At the last minutes of the Ferrari, Charles Leclaire spun in the fourth turn after hitting the curb, Monegasque returned to the pits.

The results in the middle group turned out to be very dense – the position was determined by the hundredths, and the places from the 3rd to the 16th divided just a second.

The protocol was headed by Lewis Hamilton, driving a lap in 1: 22.600 – a second faster than a year ago in the second training session.
