2018 United States Grand Prix – Free practice

LEWIS HAMILTON COMFORTABLY FASTEST FOR MERCEDES ON FRIDAY IN FP1 
USING INTERMEDIATE TYRES ON A RAINY DAY IN AUSTIN

VERY LITTLE RUNNING IN FP2, USING THE FULL WET TYRE 
AND ALSO INTERMEDIATES

NO DATA YET COLLECTED ON THE SLICK TYRES, WITH SUNDAY’S RACE EXPECTED TO BE DRY FOLLOWING A WET QUALIFYING TOMORROW

MARIO ISOLA - HEAD OF CAR RACING

“There wasn’t so much that could be done in today’s conditions, although we did see quite a lot of running in the morning using the intermediate tyre. In wet conditions, the teams receive an extra set of intermediates, bringing their total allocation for the weekend up to five sets of intermediates and three sets of full wets. These full wets could be needed tomorrow, when more rain is expected for qualifying before a dry race on Sunday. This should obviously lead to an interesting situation in the race, with the teams lacking slick tyre data. Understandably, in today’s slippery conditions the teams preferred not to take any risks with the cars, although they were able to understand more about the crossover point from wet to intermediate.”
