Let's get started.
So it started off rocky because there was something wrong with Fernando's car which brought out a red flag.
The session restarted and then the other haas driver spun and brought out yellow flags. Also Charles spun but he managed to not hit the boards and there was no damged to the Ferrari
and kimi spun later on in turn 19 I think. There was some times deleted for track limits and there was a little collision with a haas and a red bull, it was mick and checo.
So that was FP1. Some more news valtteri will have a 5 place grid penlty for taking his sixth ICE (Internal Combustion Engine). George will also have a grid penlty so he will be starting in the back with sebby. Result time
So there was a lot of traffic. Also Fernando spun turn 19 late in the session.
There were deleted times just like FP1 for track limits and some of the drivers had problems with a part of the car touching them on the leg.
here are the results
Austin, Texas - October 22, 2021
📸: Dan Istitene
Lando has some issues with his car. I couldn’t hear what exactly properly.
Max and Hamilton are already racing each other this weekend.
If I was given a dollar for every time a driver calls other driver an idiot. I would be a millionaire by now.
No Penalty for Perez for his incident with Mick in FP1.
Considering how many laps times are getting deleted today. Qualifying tomorrow would be interesting.
Now Charles has some issues with his car.
There is something loose between my legs- Charles Leclerc
Helmets issues showing up again this time with Mazepin. Commentors recon everyone would need different helmets on this track than their regular ones.That’s what they said Right?
Watching Antonio’s onboard makes me sad. He deserves better than what Alfa Romeo is doing to him. Just give him an answer to his future Alfa!
A little incident for Lando.
Lance got something in his eyes apparently. He is doing surprising well this session.
Max and Lewis jumping one up each other wow. This is only practice not racing relax man.
Mick - What lap time did Giovinazzi do? Mick wanting to up a direct rival.
In the car development chart that they showed for the season, Mercedes are the fasters. Alpha Tauri are the only one who gained in time rest of the teams have lost times over the season.
There’s something at the end of the cockpit touching my leg in the corner- Esteban Ocon.
Fernando Alonso goes over the gravel into the barrier and he too manages to driver himself into the pit.
Again so many lap times are deleted. I can’t wait for the qualifying.
To conclude the session Antonio misses the pit entry after the checkered flag and had to reverse his car for the entry.
Perez, Norris and Hamilton the top 3 of the session.
Max is P8, again a rare occurrence.
Daniel P5, Charles P7, Carlos P9, Antonio P10, Pierre P12 and Yuki P16. Another good session for Antonio.
Sebastian Vettle does the most number of laps that is 30. Antonio and Latifi are next with 26 laps each.
Don't know if this has been posted but Fernando cosplaying as our brains yesterday: Max Max Max Max 😂
busy day for alpine mechanics today i see
nando is straight up not having a good time :(
fernando accumulating all his bad luck during the fp sessions so he can have a good race we love a clever king<3
I swear Im gonna kill someone at Ziggo if the dont release this full video tonight.... Dan singing makes me just.....
Fernando basket edition is so hot🥵🥺
Fernando Alonso loses power in his engine and gets session red flagged within 4 minutes into FP1. And then goes and sit casually on the barrier.
Charles has an incident at turn 5and gets stuck into the gravel before he freed his car to be able to drive it back to the pit. They don't think the damage is too bad.
I think Pierre got a couple lap time delete before he got the fastest sector 1. I know he got atleast one time deleted. 4 other drivers got their delete too at the beginning.
Bottas is going to take another engine upgrade this weekend taking a 5 place grid penalty. His 6th this season. Third in 4 races (Monza& Sochi). God knows what's going on in mercedes.
Sebastian Vettel and George Russell getting new power unit too this weekend. Both expected to start at the end of the grid.
Charles and alonso's car problems are fixed within the session and they got to do more laps .
Alex is Yuki's driver coach again this weekend.
Mazepin goes for a spin into the gravel .
Antonio has helmet issues.
I think Pierre continued to get his lap time deleted in the second half too. He was stuck behind the pack for a while. Or he was just struggling. I find that hard to believe considering his form this year.
Mick and Perez have a collusion.
Kimi loses control of the car right at the checked flag.
Bottas, Hamilton and Verstappen the top 3 of the session.
Daniel, Mick and Kimi tops the speed charts with Bottas and Pierre to follow.
Latifi, Russell, Hamilton, Antonio and Vettel are the other people in the speed charts.
Daniel Riccardo was in the same boat as Pierre. Either struggled or lap time deleted. Both of them certainly had the speed today.
Yuki struggling again.
Charles P4 and Pierre P6 in the end. They are my main men if you didn't know already.
Carlos P5 Lando P8 Antonio P9 Daniel P16 Yuki P18. Good for Antonio.
Esteban and Yuki got the most laps in with 22 laps each with Lance, Vettel, Carlos and Perez to follow with 20 laps each
New memes from Fernando Alonso US GRAND PRIX 🇺🇸🏁
europe as it waits all day for f1 to begin
Nando's alpine really said " ....... nope 😌" to running today
5 year old me sitting at the edge of the bed after peeing in it
nando sitting on the barriers..same bestie
Fernando zooming off on the back of a motorbike...
red flag 3 minutes in the fp1 pretty much sums up what it is like to be f1 fan
fernando’s alpine lasted about 2 seconds into fp1 before it just died.
5min in and Alonso is already out. Well OK then...
