Leclerc did it again!

Already best time in the first free practice session of the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix earlier in the day, Charles Leclerc, at the wheel of his Ferrari, was once again the fastest during the second session. free practice at Imola on Friday evening. The Monegasque beat Oscar Piastri (McLaren) and Yuki Tsunoda (Racing Bulls). Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly finished 14th and 15th respectively.

Again repeated for Charles Leclerc. Earlier in the day, the Monegasque driver of the Ferrari team was the fastest during the first free practice session of the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix, dominating George Russell and his Scuderia teammate Carlos Sainz. Leclerc did it again during the second free practice session of this seventh round of the world championship season. Even better time, the driver who finished third in the Miami Grand Prix on May 5 even improved his time again, this time completing his best lap in 1’15”906.

On this Imola circuit bearing the name of his team (Enzo and Dino Ferrari), the current third in the general driver standings behind the two Red Bulls of Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez lapped faster than the Australian Oscar Piastri ( McLaren) and the surprising Japanese Yuki Tsunoda, who completed the podium in these EL2s at the wheel of his Racing Bulls, whose headquarters are located around ten kilometers from Imola. The two Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton and Russell follow, while Sainz, third in the first time, signs the 6th fastest time ahead of the triple Dutch world champion.

The French far from the Top 10 but confident

Annoyed by the lack of grip in his car – he even ended up in the gravel – “Mad Max” mainly clashed with Hamilton, who came to hinder him by driving too slowly while he was launching into a fast lap . Perez, Verstappen’s teammate, finished a notch behind (8th). Nico Hulkenberg (Haas) and Fernando Alonso (Aston Martin) close this Top 10 which does not include Lando Norris (McLaren), the hero of the Miami GP, only 11th, nor any of our two French drivers.

And for good reason: Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly rank 14th and 15th respectively. Gasly nevertheless displayed great optimism on the eve of qualifying. “We learned a lot over the two sessions and we will work hard to prepare for tomorrow (Saturday) (…) I look forward to what comes next and hope that we can continue to move in the right direction. »
