F1 2024 Bahrain GP – Practice 2 Results

The 2024 Formula 1 season got underway with FP2 at the Bahrain Grand Prix, the most representative session ahead of qualifying and the race


Lewis Hamilton and George Russell raised plenty of eyebrows as they finished one-two in Free Practice 2 ahead of the 2024 Bahrain Grand Prix, with the seven-time champion almost half a second faster than Max Verstappen in the Red Bull. 

While there are rumblings in the paddock that Red Bull are not utilising the full extent of their engine power, excitement for qualifying is palpable given Verstappen could only manage sixth fastest in the most representative session of race conditions. 

Fernando Alonso in the Aston Martin was third fastest, just over two tenths behind Hamilton. Carlos Sainz was the quickest Ferrari in fourth place, just ahead of McLaren’s Oscar Piastri.
