Charles Leclerc set the pace in a heavily-delayed and extended second practice session as track action at the F1 Las Vegas Grand Prix finally resumed following early manhole cover dramas.
Following a delay to repair damaged water valve covers and the cancellation of FP1, second practice began with a 2.5-hour delay at 2.30am local time. FP2 was extended by half an hour to give teams more track time. Charles Leclerc topped the timesheets with a 0.517s lead over teammate Carlos Sainz, who received a 10-place grid penalty. Fernando Alonso finished in third place. Sergio Perez was the fastest Red Bull driver, followed by Valtteri Bottas in fifth and Max Verstappen in sixth. The session took place without fans in attendance due to logistical considerations.
