United States grand Prix 2015: Results of the free practice sessions

Rosberg GP de AustinStarts an end of a difficult week for the F1, with a climate threat with this hurricane that has swept across the american continent. The GP of the united States is in the air for the climatic conditions that has brought this temporary. According to the forecast, today is the best day of this weekend, with prognosis more negative for the session of free 3, qualifying and race. And the storm has brought some ridiculous rumors such as the possibility of Red Bull to be powered by Honda in 2016, what does seem more certain is that Ferrari from motorize to Toro Rosso as in the past.

In terms of the competition, the first session of free shooting bit by the heavy rain that had left the track quite wet. Some areas were beginning to dry, but in others it accumulated a lot of water. The circuit is not drained well the water and not even shooting continuous the car did a lane on the track. All went out on intermediate tyres to be able to draw the back, which have been adversely affected by the dry areas appearing. But the humidity has not stopped speculation about the mate Maldonado for 2016, that seems to be Kevin Magnussen with a major sponsor that brings it under the arm.

GP de Estados Unidos HuracánReturning to the climate, the local TV has given some guidelines for the attendees to the circuit to claim the money from your entry if it finally is suspended. And as I say, the weather threat the next sessions of the GP of Austin. In fact, the second session of free has been suspended, first slowed down due to the risk of lightning for the commissioners and later was suspended because under these conditions, the medical helicopter can’t get out if an accident occurs.

Red Bull finally not mount the engine and the explanations officials are not convinced too. Toro Rosso don’t want to penalize you and try the Renault engine with those 11 tokens invested in the improvement, and that looks pretty bad, according to Carlos Sainz Jr., the improvement is of only 1 tenth. If it is true, Renault does not he lift up the head of a face-to 2016, what better is Honda. And yes you mounted the engine in the McLaren of Alonso with his 4 tokens, which are estimated to have earned 20CV extra. Ferrari also penalize you to mount your new engine in that they have exhausted their last tokens of this season…

Results of the free 2


We will be attentive to the forecasts for tomorrow. It is being studied to delay the session to find a lull in the rain, or directly suspend the two sessions of the sabbath and perform the classification on the Sunday before the race. If this option nor can you run because the weather does not leave, another possibility is delaying the race to Monday, something tedious for televisions, but that, although there have been cases in F1, yes it has happened in Indy (although this involves a problem of logistics to send the material to the neighbouring country before Wednesday). It is also feared by the GP of Mexico the next weekend, the storm is affecting the preparations to complete the circuit.
