Free Practice 1 this morning with clear blue skies! Ambit air temperature is 84.2°F, while the track temperature is a little warmer at 98.6°F. The absence of Sergio Perez – due to a positive Covid-19 test – was the big news ahead of this race, before ex-Renault and Force India racer Hulkenberg was called up at the last minute to replace him. The German was one of the first drivers out of the garage when the session began and finished ninth fastest on his return. Alfa Romeo’s duo had an eventful session, with Kimi Räikkönen, P18, going off at Luffield moments before Antonio Giovinazzi, P17, spectacularly spun at Chapel and then rejoined the track with a shower of gravel, rubber and carbon fibre trailing his C39.

Nicholas Latifi spun out and missed the wall but worn with flat spots on his tires in the end of Q1. Lewis Hamilton spins and brings gravel onto the track, track is Red Flag to get it cleaned Q2!

Why have they allowed them Mercedes boys to use that DAS system? they say it just to get the tires to warm up more even, it changes the Tow and makes for less rolling resistance down the straights allowing for higher speeds. If I was the other teams I would have had it by now. Once qualifying starts the cars are supposed to be in "Perc Ferme" and you are not supposed to change any suspension settings, every time they use it they are changing the tow setting so it should be illegal.
