One F1 fan comment on “First Free Practice Results 2022 Mexico F1 Grand Prix

  1. Jere Jyrälä

    Williams messed up Sargeant’s minimum distance requirement by not maximizing laps early in the session.
    They clearly didn't take into account possible red interruptions caused by others, something teams should always consider when forming their practice run plans, especially when someone needs SL points, but also generally.
