F1 2023 Brazilian GP – Practice 1 Results

Carlos Sainz was fastest in Free Practice 1 at the 2023 Brazilian GP. Full FP3 results from Interlagos in Sao Paulo


Ferarri’s Carlos Sainz was the class of the field in Free Practice 1 at the 2023 Brazilian Grand Prix, just 0.108s ahead of teammate Charles Leclerc

All the teams were concentrating on race simulations given that no real changes can be made to the cars from Qualifying onwards, given the sprint weekend format. Both Ferrari cars did soft tyre runs towards the end and set the best last sector times. 

Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez in the Red Bull cars never did any soft tyre running across the session. And George Russell in the Mercedes was just 0.133s behind Sainz, though the Brit’s time was set on the medium tyres. 

Nico Hulkenberg and Lando Norris has a moment when the slow Haas car whacked the side of the McLaren, luckily there was no damage to either car. McLaren did go out on the soft tyre, but never completed a full lap.
