Due to drain incidents causing the cancellation of Free Practice 1, the start of Free Practice 2 for the 2023 F1 Las Vegas Grand Prix will be delayed. In the initial minutes of the session, Carlos Sainz had a collision with a loose drain cover on the Strip, resulting in the destruction of the Ferrari. Esteban Ocon also encountered debris, necessitating a chassis change for Alpine. As a result, the red flags were deployed and the remaining part of the session was cancelled.
Following these incidents, the FIA, F1, and engineers conducted track inspections to examine the drains around the circuit. They identified a single water value cover failure as the cause of the loose drain. However, there is currently no specific time frame for the start of FP2 or its duration.
