F1 2024 Saudi Arabian GP – Practice 2 Results

The 2024 Formula 1 season continues with FP2 at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, the most representative session ahead of qualifying and the race


Fernando Alonso topped the timesheet in the second practice session at the 2024 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, with George Russell and Max Verstappen trailing closely behind. The session began with a slight delay and took place under more race-like conditions, with Alonso’s blistering lap setting him apart by 0.230s from Russell.

The session saw its share of drama, including Valtteri Bottas‘ early spin at Turn 1 and a potential impeding incident between Lewis Hamilton and Logan Sargeant, which will be investigated post-session. Amidst the competitive qualifying simulations, Alonso emerged fastest, solidifying his position with a 1m 28.827s lap.

The day concluded with notable performances across the board, as teams and drivers adapted to the nighttime conditions. With FP2 wrapped up, attention now turns to the final practice session and qualifying, where strategies and adjustments will be crucial for success in the upcoming race.
