The second practice for the very first Miami Formula One Grand Prix started off a lot cooler than this morning's FP1.

After ten minutes the order was 1. Leclerc (1:31.131), 2. Gasly, 3. Sainz, 4. Zhou, 5. Ocon, 6. Alo, 7. Norris, 8. Ricciardo, 9. Stroll, 10. Tsunoda. Six drivers had not set a lap time. One of those drivers were Verstappen, Hamilton and Russell.

18 minutes into the session Carlos Sainz again wrecked the F1-75. He now spun round in turn 14 and damaged the left side of his car and had to step out of it. Again it took 10 minutes to recover the car and restart the session. Schumacher, Verstappen and Bottas had not record a lap time yet.

When Verstappen got out he said he wasn't able to steer. His rear brakes also were on fire. The Dutchman returned to the Red Bull pits to get the problem fixed and didn't got out anymore this session.

With 15 minutes to go George Russell was fastest with a 1:29.938 min driven with the upgraded Mercedes. Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc was second on +0.106 sec. Sergio Perez was 3rd on 0.212 sec.

13 minutes before the end another red flag was brought out to recover Nicholas Latifi's Williams who parked his car on the side of the road.

5 F1 Fan comments on “Second Free Practice Results 2022 Miami F1 GP

  1. ReallyOldRacer

    I understand that ignorance is not a character flaw, it's a learning opportunity. But, embarrassing question from social media, "Why are they using white flags? Is it because there is so much blue by the side of the track?" We've still got a bit to learn here in the promised land, but we'll get there.

    Best part of FP2 was the Andretti interview. If only everyone was so forthcoming. Oh, and the shot of the bikini clad mermaids by the 'pools' just for Swede.

    • Jere Jyrälä

      White is for slow-moving vehicles, although I've also found the random white usage weird since blue exists for that purpose generally.

      • ReallyOldRacer

        Jere, blue flag is displayed to a driver being overtaken, white is displayed to warn of slow moving vehicle ahead. More white in Miami because of the blind corners.
