F1 2024 Australian Grand Prix – Practice 1 Results

The 2024 Formula 1 season continues with FP1 at the Australian Grand Prix with Lando Norris leading the early running in Melbourne


McLaren driver Lando Norris was top of the timesheet after Free Practice 1 at the 2024 Australian Grand Prix, just 0.018s ahead of Max Verstappen in the Red Bull with two tenths of a second separating the top nine in Melbourne. 

Alex Albon brought out the red flag with 20 minutes to go in the session after he had a moment and hit the wall at Turns 6 and 7 spreading debris all across the track. 

Before that, George Russell and Valtteri Bottas both had moments at Turn 9 with the Mercedes running over the grass and the Sauber spinning at speed.

Aston Martin have an updated front wing in place at Albert Park and Fernando Alonso took to the circuit with high aero-rakes attached to his car, which along with the stoppage, interrupted his run plan.
