Rosberg, mark the best time on a track too resbaladiza

rosberg-marca-el-mejor-tiempo-en-una-pis

Nico Rosberg was the best time of a few seconds in free practice very moved due to the unknowns that still surround the Great Prize of Mexico. In addition to a track that did not know, the lack of grip meant that they were to see many runway excursions, and even an accident. Behind him, the Red Bull of Kvyat and Ricciardo, with a Lewis Hamilton covered in fourth position.

The session had a first red flag nothing more to boot. Max Verstappen, precisely the one that marked the best time at the first session, it crashed against the wall of the curve of entrance of the old peralta, with which the session was halted for a few moments.

the track conditions not only not improved with respect to the first free, but the asphalt was very slippery. Thus, in addition to Verstappen, other drivers such as Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Räikkönen or Valtteri Bottas proved the loopholes… and even the wall. The finn crashed his Williams at turn 1, in an incident that recalled much to the shock of Sainz in Russia.

throughout the session, many teams were testing solutions to solve the problems in the brakes. In Mercedes, Williams and Ferrari tried to solve this by removing the tire from the drum, but that didn’t stop us to see more outputs of the track. In case outside little, the rain also made its appearance, which, coupled with the appalling conditions of grip made it almost all the pilots to try the loopholes. In fact, the problems in the brakes caused the second red flag of the day, when Romain Grosjean had to park his Lotus on the outer area of the track.

on the part of the spaniards, good session. Especially for Fernando Alonso, that in spite of complaining of problems of batteries -something that also affected Jenson Button-, he managed the eighth best time, and gave 36 laps. Carlos Sainz was the most hard-working of the day, with 41 turns to the circuit.
