Formula 1 returned to Turkey after an eight-year hiatus at Istanbul Park, which was re-asphalted before the Turkish Grand Prix and even washed down before Friday’s first practice.

On the already very smooth, very cold asphalt in the shady places, there was still water in many places when the cars rolled out, so everyone immediately signaled that it was like, and even worse than, driving on ice, you couldn’t even go straight at full throttle.

The red flag also came out after five minutes after Charles Leclerc carried the buoy with noble simplicity because he could not turn around at the boxing entrance properly. The situation did not improve for a long time, the surface dried and rubberized very slowly in the first hour, the lap times only started to improve in the last half hour, but still lagged far behind the 2005 record of 1: 24,770 – the last time in 2011. ben Sebastian Vettel scored pole with 1: 25,049 – and Red Bull Max Verstappen finished with 1: 35,077 in the lead.

The Dutch and many others also spun, we saw pirouettes from Valtteri Bottas, Pierre Gasly, Kevin Magnussen, the sliding was continuous.

While Bottas struggled bravely with the impossible from the first moment, Lewis Hamilton didn’t force things, didn’t even complete a measured lap for a very long time, eventually finishing only in 15th place.

Surprisingly, no one broke a car, mclarenes Carlos Sainz was the only one who didn’t finish the circuit in the garage, but he was forced to step aside on the track due to an electronic fault.
