F1 2024 Australian Grand Prix – Practice 2 Results

The 2024 Formula 1 season continues with FP2 at the Australian Grand Prix as Charles Leclerc takes Ferrari to the top in Melbourne

-

Ferrari fans can rejoice as Charles Leclerc put in a sensational lap in Free Practice 2 at the 2024 Australian Grand Prix, a full 0.381s ahead of Max Verstappen in the Red Bull. Verstappen‘s session started late due to Red Bull addressing floor damage from FP1, while Alex Albon missed FP2 entirely following a crash in the first session.

Carlos Sainz was third, marking a strong return for the Spaniard after recent surgery. The session saw competitive times from Aston Martin’s Lance Stroll and Fernando Alonso in fourth and fifth, while Mercedes’ George Russell managed sixth amid off-track excursions by various drivers.

Logan Sargeant faced challenges with an early spin and multiple off-track moments but finished the session in 13th. Meanwhile, home crowd favorite Daniel Ricciardo landed in 12th place, with teams like Sauber working to overcome recent pit stop issues.

As the Melbourne track action wrapped up on Friday, teams and drivers geared up for Saturday’s final practice and qualifying, analyzing data to refine their strategies and setups for the weekend.
