Leclerc messed it up in Free Practice 2 which was converted into a Pirelli test in Mexico


They have to be a quiet Free Practice 2, unrelated to what will happen in the F1 Mexican GP. The second free practice sessions of the Mexican GP were, as was the case in Austin, some Pirelli tests, and nothing else. The teams will have to follow a detailed program of tests with experimental tires without typing to provide information to Pirelli so that the World Cup tire supplier can create the 2023 tires. . But Charles Leclerc made that mistake. The Monegasque driver had an accident at turn 8 of the Hermanos Rodríguez Autodrome and was forced to stop the session due to a red flag.

The Ferrari driver smashed the rear of his F1-75 in a wall crash and gave his mechanics a job they could have saved to get the car ready for Friday’s Free Practice 3 contest.

Other than that, the session went off without a hitch. Russell was fastest ahead of Tsunoda and Ocon as they were the only ones with Albon who could fit 2022 tires who missed FP1 as they were replaced by non-starters in early practice. The rest rolled and rolled with unknown tires without revealing the type of compound, something that prevented any comparison or conclusive data.
