Ferrari starts with double in free practice at Monza weekend

Ferrari started the weekend in Monza, where the Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix is ​​being held, with a double in the first free practice sessions, with the Monegasque Charles Leclerc in front (1:22.410) and the Spanish Carlos Sainz second, behind 77 thousandths of a second.

The Italian team, which celebrates its 75th anniversary at home with a change of decoration on its car and the incorporation of yellow, could not have started better in front of the tifosi, although Sainz had an exit from the track in the last moments.

The first free practices of the weekend were preceded by a minute’s silence in memory of Queen Elizabeth II in the pit lane of the Monza circuit.

The Dutchman Nyck de Vries, Formula E champion in the 2020/21 season, drove the Aston Martín of the German Sebastian Vettel in what was his third test this year, all with different cars, after the ones he had in Spain with Williams and in France with Mercedes. He felt like it and started leading the table, although for a short time.

It wasn’t the only seat change in free practice, as Italian Antonio Giovinazzi tested Mick Schumacher’s Haas.

Drivers used the first part of the session to set up their cars and the second to test performance over one lap and in the race.
