second session was interrupted, Kubica bangs against barrier – OA Sport


<! – ->


07.19: Adverse effects on the Williams Kubica barrier which, when leaving curve-2, loses stability. Fortunately, nothing serious for the Polish driver, but the car was badly damaged.

19:05: RED FLAG !!!

04.04: Bottas achieved an excellent time of 1/10 ″ 812 for hard tires. Behind him Sainz with 249 thousand delays on average, all three Giovinazzi with Alfa Romeo at 0 ″ 932 with an average.

19.03: First time to arrive: Antonio Giovinazzi leads with a time of 1-11 ″ 744 with a 960 thousand advantage over Ricciardo. Italy with medium tires and Australia with hard tires.

19.03: Also on the track are Mercedes from Valtteri Bottas with hard tires.

19.02: Giovinazzi's Alfa Romeo is on track immediately, followed by Norris, Raikkonen and Grosjean. Single seat on the track with medium tires.

19.01: In the first part of the attack-time will be simulated, then turn simulation of race steps.

19:00: GO TO FP2 !!

18.58: These are weather conditions:

18.57: 3 awal in the beginning, therefore, from a very important session in the dry season, after the FP1 rain. 30% risk of rain.

18.54: Pilots will meet a truly "green" path, without gums, for the first rain of the session.

18.52: We worked hard in the Red Bull box to repair RB15 Alexander Albon, after the FP1 accident.

18.50: There is currently no rain, therefore a ceasefire at Interlagos. Dry track session expected.

18.47: On this track the tire is subjected to high lateral and longitudinal forces, which increase the temperature of the compound which never takes too long to rest. High average downforce, with the same need for mechanical and aerodynamic grip, which leads to extra effort for tires.

18:45: very difficult conditions in the first half, it is hoped that the weather is mild for FP2.

18.43: The Power Unit, therefore, is specifically requested.

18.41: As far as the Power Unit is concerned, the Brazilian line will not be too demanding for endothermic units, but will keep the turbocharger under pressure. To compensate for the loss of power, it is estimated to be around 1.5%, due to the rarer air, the turbocharger unit must run at speeds of more than about 2,000 rpm.

18.39: Brazil's trajectories are usually moderate / medium-high downforce due to the large number of curves that are above all in the second sector, which somehow enhances the characteristics of car motorcycles. In fact, it should be noted that there are two long straight between the first and third sectors where it will be necessary to produce very high speeds both to minimize the loss of lap time and to be efficient in copying in the race.

18.36: In Monegasque's single seat, a new member is installed after key points were discovered in Austin a few weeks ago and therefore young champion Rossa has to serve ten penalty positions on the grid start on Sunday.

18.34: As is known, Charles Leclerc replaced "only" the endothermic engine at the 2019 Brazilian GP, ​​the second stage of the F1 World Championship being run at the Interlagos circuit.

18.32: It is interesting to understand, therefore, what the FP2's condition is like, it is important to describe the balance on the track.

18.30: Ferraris third and fourth, with Sebastian Vettel of Germany apart from 0.899 and Monegasque Charles Leclerc of 1.143 turning above all in the first phase of the session with the track still very wet. In the last five minutes the team from Maranello had sent the two single seats on the track neatly, but could not improve the time previously set with the intermediary cars.

18.27: Behind Albon we find the Finnish Mercedes Valtteri Bottas, second place at 0.551 from the peak at the end of the round where she shows excellent competitiveness with intermediate tires on wet asphalt also thanks to the high aerodynamic load that she releases W10.

18.25: At the closing stage, Thai Red Bull has installed a dry tire like many other tires, but will hit the barrier outside the corner of Junçao so that it damages the front right suspension and causes the red flag to end the session.

18.23: Alexander Albon closes FP1 at the top of the standings thanks to the excellent 1-116 ″ 142 which is obtained with an intermediate tire at the best moment of rotation as far as the track conditions are concerned

18.21: The first free training session was not very significant because of the ever-increasing wet asphalt which did not allow drivers to spend time with slippery tires at the last minute.

18.19: Hello and welcome back to LIVE LIVE for free practice 2 from the Brazilian GP, ​​the second round of the 2019 F1 World Championship. On the Interlagos track, racers and teams will try to find the ideal setting in a short time given tomorrow's qualifications and Sunday's race.








16.33 Everything for this first session with a little action on the track. An appointment for 7pm with FP2, hoping the track stays dry. Then, greetings from OA Sport.

16.32 Therefore the last rank did not change from twenty minutes ago:

1 Alexander ALBON 1: 16,142
2 Valtteri BOTTAS +0.551
3 Sebastian VETTEL +0.899
4 Charles LECLERC +1.143
5 Carlos SAINZ +1.644
6 Nico HULKENBERG + 1,757
7 Daniel RICCIARDO + 1,843
8 Pierre GASLY +1.958
9 Daniil KVYAT +2.132
10 Lando NORRIS +2,417
11 George RUSSELL + 2,637
12 Kevin MAGNUSSEN +3.105
13 Lance STROLL +3.272
14 Kimi RÄIKKÖNEN +3,390
15 Antonio GIOVINAZZI +3.458
16 Nicholas LATIFI + 3,868
18 Sergio PEREZ

16:30 The session ends here, Albon stays ahead of everyone and Hamilton and Verstappen stop this eternal FP1.

16.28 Albon in the barrier !! RED FLAG and FINAL SESSION! Too bad!

16.27 Hamilton and Bottas chose yellow, Ferrari and Red Bull for soft. Leclerc's thorn in curve 1 and directly behind it Verstappen spins, without consequences. His condition is very close.

16.26 Even Leclerc and Vettel came out with dry tires, then Hamilton and Albon. Everything happened in the last few seconds.

16:25 And Hamilton also returns to the cockpit. We finally started with slick, thanks to Verstappen !!!

16.22 Raikkonen is on track but still with an intermediary, while Verstappen prepares for a last minute effort. Will he be the first to throw himself with a red-haired girl?

16.20 Only Russell is on track, the team is waiting for the right moment, 10 minutes are still available.

16.18 The only immortals are Grosjean, Perez, Verstappen, and Hamilton. Albon also confirmed that it was time to move slippery, promising to be a panic attack last time!

16.16 There is still plenty of time and the trajectory is always clearer, the impression is that the red rubber will make an appearance.

16.14 1.16.399 for Thailand which places itself ahead of everyone taking advantage of the best asphalt conditions compared to rivals.

16.12 Albon was also launched, the first official effort also for Red Bull, while his colleague Verstappen was still silent.

16.10 Twenty minutes to the end. Is Hamilton willing to be public in the past or has he resigned to wait for FP2?

16.07 Rear wing on the Leclerc SF90 has changed. Version with a more spoon-shaped profile, slightly empty, has been replaced by a more linear one and "loading".

16.05 Bottas put 348 thousand in front of Vettel in his first real effort. 1: 16,693 of the time.

16.03 Now that Bottas is launched, the track is practically dry in many places.

16.02 Only Russell is in action, it is possible that many are waiting for the evolution of the track to try the possibility of red in the final.

16.00 At one hour from the start of the round here there are thirteen drivers who recorded the time:

1 Sebastian VETTEL 1: 17,041
2 Charles LECLERC +0.244
3 Carlos SAINZ +0.745
4 Nico HULKENBERG +0.858
5 Daniel RICCIARDO +0.944
6 Pierre GASLY +1.136
7 Lando NORRIS +1.518
8 Daniil KVYAT +1.523
9 George RUSSELL + 2,179
10 Kevin MAGNUSSEN +2.206
11 Kimi RÄIKKÖNEN +2,491
12 Antonio GIOVINAZZI +2.559
13 Nicholas LATIFI +4,479

15.58 Ricciardo's attractive radio team announcing that he is starting to damage his tires, a symptom that the asphalt is getting a little damp and there is also the possibility of seeing slick tires at the end of the session.

15.56 Vettel takes first place now at 1: 17,041, flying on T2 and T3.

15.55 Ferraris still on track, drier track.

15.53 Great third time for Hulkenberg who are only 8-tenths behind Leclerc. Germany does not yet have a seat for next year and its future is almost certainly marked.

15.50 The third lap is canceled for Hamilton who prefers not to keep official time. Verstappen in total tranquility without suit.

15.48 The second position is for him with a delay of 459 thousand.

15.47 Fast pitstop for Sebastian who puts green (medium) and runs for his lap.

3:45 p.m. Germany is slow given the selected compound, the right tire is certainly medium.

15.44 Leclerc asked its mechanics to be able to do a few more turns than expected, so that they became accustomed to the conditions and tested the new engine. Vettel also returned to its tracks with wet tires.

15.42 Hamilton and Verstappen did not complete their round. Leclerc immediately destroyed its time, falling almost 4 seconds and making a limit of 1: 17,285.

15.40 Leclerc improved another seven-tenths (1: 21,259) before returning to install intermediaries in turn.

15.38 And the first two to come out with intermediaries are Hamilton and Verstappen! Session turned on.

15.36 First temporary position for Monegasque who deducts a few tenths for Sainz and gets 1: 21,971

15.34 Lewis Hamilton's moment also seems to have arrived. The new British sporting helmet is dedicated to Brazil and Senna, and seems ready to come out for the first time.

15.32 Return to the Leclerc route. The initial test is definitely effective for him coming out of the hole.

15.30 Meanwhile, the repair work continues in various boxes. At Red Bull we currently act by comparing the two different front wings brought here.

15.27 There are 23 degrees currently in São Paulo, a good temperature that can help dry the track.

15.25 Bottas radio team confirms that the asphalt situation is improving very quickly and soon you can see someone installing an intermediary.

15.23 Carlos Sainz was the first person to cross the finish line after launching his lap, 1: 23,689.

15.22 No one has finished the official round and so we look forward to the initial stages.

15.20 And the time has come for the world champion. Valtteri Bottas was the first Mercedes to try it, an initial test straight out of the pitlane, certainly not perfect for Finnish drivers.

15.19 Now the rain has fallen substantially and many teams have taken their course. Full wet rubber for everyone.

15.17 Verstappen is still without the upper part of the suit, quietly talking to the engineers.

15.16 Grosjean is now in action. It is interesting to note that only Ferrari-powered vehicles have tried gambling so far.

15.14 There is a lot of work in the pitlane by mechanics to dry each bearing to its full potential, so that it can make the most of the situation if we can start thinking of installing at least the medium.

15.12 Alfa Romeo follows the Reds strategy, without completing the round. Small signs of the current rain, the weather situation must be monitored.

15.10 Bottas meanwhile decides to fill … coffee. The winner of two of the last three races will try to continue the period of his great performances.

15.08 Initiate trial for SF90 # 5, to seek redemption after poor results (even if innocent) from the US GP when the unreliable suspension conditions the first round until the last withdrawal.

15.06 As expected, Germany was soon included in the pitlane. Wipe the installation simple for him, even if he continues without interruption. Leclerc, who had followed his friend, stopped.

15.04 It was Sebastian Vettel himself who warmed the enthusiasm of the fans by coming out with full wet tires to understand the condition of the asphalt.

15.02 For now no one has decided to act, calm down in the hole for the first few moments.

3:00 p.m. Green light! The Interlagos weekend has begun. FP1 starts.

14.58 Rain is expected throughout the day and will therefore also be very burdensome to FP2 tonight, while tomorrow the situation is more uncertain and, at the moment, qualifications can be dry.

14.55 Exactly a year ago we all remember episodes involving Verstappen and nicknamed Ocon, which led to a rival round and consequently Hamilton's victory in its place. France paid quite a fortune for the episode because from then on the hopes were left to remain in the circus this year if they left. But the talented former Force India is ready to return to the car starting next season with Renault.

14.53 A news from the last hour is the confirmation of the presence of Mercedes even after 2020. There is no great doubt about it but it was confirmed a while ago by Ola Kallenius, CEO of Mercedez-Benz.

14.51 Nobody prepared this moment to be on track, as expected. A lot of work on the car will probably make at least one training round during the session, to verify that everything is OK.

14.49 For Sundays there should be no risk of heavy rain (conditions in Brazil are always a must) and therefore for many teams there may not be a risk of risking an accident to collect data that might not be useful.

14.47 The sky is very dark and the rain has been falling for several hours. Activity on the track may not even be much because the conditions are very dangerous.

14.45 Fifteen minutes before the start of the session.

14.42 Ferrari is not the only one to bring renewal, Red Bull is actually presented with modifications to the front wing that have been seen on the occasion of Monte Carlo at Verstappen RB15. For the Austrian team, the goal is to naturally undermine two big rivals as much as possible, even on a path like this that is less profitable for them.

14.40 We remind you that because the time zone between Brazil and Italy the race will start on Sunday at 18:10 local time.

14.38 For Lewis Hamilton it is the official first prize release. England is in very good condition and can begin to concentrate towards 2020 where he will look for Michael Schumacher's historical record.

14.35 In this case, expectations for this new specification on the SF90 brought by Leclerc are very high. However, Interlagos must be a better path for SF90 than in Austin and therefore the prospects for the Reds are very encouraging.

14.33 The fight for third place in the world ranking between the same two Ferraris and Verstappen remains wide open. Leclerc started with a number of points up front (14 on Max and 19 on its partners), but this weekend he has to pay a 10 position penalty on the grid to replace his power unit.

14.31 Ferrari returned from an opaque weekend in America and, after the controversy that arose mainly from the words of the Dutch Verstappen, was called for immediate redemption. Who, better than a track, can respond to accusations?

14.29 World titles have been given, to Lewis Hamilton of England and his Mercedes, and in the last two rounds we will try to test some new things in connection with winter. Everyone's desire to do well stays high and waits for the green light is very high.

14.27 We return to the track one week from Austin for the final appointment of an intense season, marked by the dominance of Mercedes in the first phase and by a good recovery from Ferrari in the second. Today also includes the second session which will start at 19:00 Italian time.

2.25 pm Good afternoon, back at OA Sport, ready to take the first free practice approach for the 2019 Brazilian Grand Prix, which will start at 3:00 pm


Brazilian GP Program (November 15) – Presentation of the Brazilian GP – Leclerc with the 2020 engine?

Hello and welcome back to LIVE DIRECTLY from the 1st free practice of the Brazilian GP, ​​the second round of the 2019 World F1 Championship. On the Interlagos track, drivers and teams will try to find the ideal setting in a short amount of time given tomorrow's qualifications and Sunday's race.

Ferrari must deal with a penalty for Charles Leclerc. Monegasque will actually be subject to sanctions for 10 positions on the initial grid because it has replaced its Red Power Unit. The Horse Prancing technicians, in fact, could not help but change the second unit used in Austin (United States) and at the same time they failed to recover the EV03 engine that was damaged during FP3 in Texas. Therefore a weekend with disabilities was planned for Charles, but he could have a propeller in the 2020 version.

A circuit, on paper, which is supposed to smile at SF90, with great power. A topic that has become hot in recent weeks, given that many teams (including Mercedes and Red Bull) have asked the FIA ​​to clarify the use of gasoline related to maximizing engine performance. The Federation's second directives on this topic sparked controversy, given that Ferrari found itself at the center of the case, without ever breaking the rules in practice.

However, more than this, Germany Sebastian Vettel willing to stand out, want to exploit partner / rival problems and launch challenges to Mercedes, with Lewis Hamilton already a world champion and Valtteri Bottas ready to give an encore after what happened in America. Teutonic, for its part, must cancel the withdrawal suffered in the US and Brazil has the opportunity to make up for it.

OA Sport offers you LIVE LIVE for the 1st free practice of the Brazilian GP, ​​the second round of the 2019 F1 World Championship: real-time news and constant updates. It starts at 3:00 p.m.. Have fun! (Photo: LaPresse)
