During our first Formula 1 practice before the US Grand Prix, we saw as many as five drivers on the track who aren’t racing the motorsport queen on a daily basis. Many teams have chosen Austin as the place where the young drivers are called. Alex Ballou, Robert Schwartzman, Theo Burshire and Logan Sargent sat in the cockpit.

Quite unexpectedly, the problems were created by a driver with a lot of experience, because he spent three seasons in competition. This is Antonio Giovinazzi, who crashed Haas after a few minutes of driving.

The damage to the car of the American team turned out to be so severe that the Italian did not return to the track. In addition, the judges had to interrupt the hearing with a red flag for a while.

Mercedes, on the other hand, brought a slew of corrections to Austin, so Lewis Hamilton completed the first laps of practice before the US Grand Prix with special aerodynamic equipment. When the seven-time world champion was able to run at a normal pace, he was 0.1 seconds closer to driving Max Verstappen.

However, information has come from the F1 circuit that the new flooring prepared by Mercedes does not comply with the regulations, so the team will not be able to use it in the later stages of the US Grand Prix, as well as in other races of the 2022 season.

Carlos Sainz unexpectedly matched Verstappen and Hamilton. The Ferrari driver took a time of 1:36.857 which eventually put him first in F1 training ahead of the US Grand Prix. Although the Red Bull Racing leader appeared on the track in the final stage of the course after a long break, the double world champion was unable to beat Sainz’s result. Verstappen turned out to be 0.224 seconds slower.
