With the prospect of rain for practice 2, FP1 took on a different role in the preparation for weekend.
Carlos Sainz brought out the red flags after mounting the curb coming out of the hairpin and colliding with the inside barrier.
All teams did long fuel runs and light fuel runs giving us a more indicative view into their actual performance.

The session commenced with miniature boat racing down pit lane. The rain was that heavy. With about 45 minutes left in the session, the track was declared safe for cars to begin their practice. Most teams ventured out of pit lane but returned back into pit entry after their sighting lap.
