Two major accidents, a red-flag interruption, and several slips were interspersed with the Russian Grand Prix’s first free practice in Sochi in unusually warm weather.

The nearly 30-degree heat and the dirty, “green” asphalt made fun of quite a few riders, two of them also broke a car, first the MCL35 broke out from under the Carlos Sainz of McLarenes in corner 7, the spin was hurt by the rear wing, right, he was able to return to the pit lane on his own, all he had to do was order a virtual security car.

Williams rookie Nicholas Latifi didn’t do so well, not long after losing control in corner 10 in a very similar way, but that car had already crashed normally in the wall, circling the red flag for the duration of the rescue and cleaning. The pilot had no problem.

The fastest was Mercedes Valtteri Bottas, true, behind the first training result of last year’s Charles Leclerc in Finland. However, six-time world champion team-mate Lewis Hamilton, who is set to hit Michael Schumacher’s 91st race victory record on Sunday, only finished 19th – behind the English Sainz incident, he missed out on the fast lap.

Behind Bottas, to a minor surprise, renault’s Daniel Ricciardo closed, followed by former teammate Red Bull Max Verstappen and then Racing Point.

Esteban Ocon with the other Renault, Alexander Albon with the other Red Bull, both AlphaTauri and Ferraris Sebastian Vettel also made it into the top 10.

Romain Grosjean had a very struggling morning, felt the car almost undrivable, plus he had a misunderstanding with Leclerc and Perez in the corners. George Russell Williamse wasn’t on top either: in English, the brakes blocked every single pressure.
