F1 2024 Japanese Grand Prix – Practice 2 Results

Oscar Piastri of McLaren was fastest in a washed out FP2 at the 2024 Japanese Grand Prix


Oscar Piastri emerged fastest in a rain-impacted FP2 session at the 2024 Japanese Grand Prix, with only a handful of drivers, including Lewis Hamilton and Charles Leclerc, setting a timed lap.

The inclement weather and reduced tyre allocation led to a cautious approach from most teams, keeping drivers predominantly within the confines of their garages. Yuki Tsunoda initially led the timesheets for RB, until Piastri‘s last-minute dash on softs pushed him to the front.

Despite the absence of heavy rain, typical for Suzuka, sporadic drizzles sufficed to severely limit track action during FP2. Early attempts by Daniel Ricciardo to galvanize on-track activity were quickly dampened by worsening conditions, leading to prolonged inactivity.
