An extended Free Practice 2 finally had cars out on track in anger, as Ferrari showed their hand in Las Vegas.
Charles Leclerc was the fastest in the heavily-delayed and disrupted second practice session for the Las Vegas Grand Prix, leading a Ferrari one-two. The first practice session had to be abandoned after just eight minutes due to a loose water valve drain cover, which caused damage to Carlos Sainz’s Ferrari and necessitated a chassis change for Esteban Ocon. The second session finally began two and a half hours late and was extended to 90 minutes. Leclerc set the fastest time of 1:35.265, with a gap of 0.517s over Sainz, who was driving a new Ferrari chassis. Fernando Alonso finished third, while Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton placed sixth and ninth respectively.
