F1 Testing 2024: Results from Day 2 Morning Session

Find out the Formula 1 results from the Day 2 morning session of 2024 testing in Bahrain


The second morning of F1 pre-season testing at the Bahrain International Circuit concluded abruptly due to a required track inspection following an incident. Charles Leclerc, leading for Ferrari, ran over a drain cover on the approach to Turn 11, leaving debris on the circuit.

Lewis Hamilton, making his 2024 testing debut, also struck the debris. After replays showed the incident, a track inspection was initiated, leading to a delay of around 40 minutes.

The decision was then taken to end the morning session an hour early and extend the afternoon running, which would now take place from 14:00 to 19:00 local time, 11:00 to 16:00 in the UK.

Leclerc finished the session just over half a second clear of McLaren’s Oscar Piastri, with the Williams of Logan Sargeant, the Red Bull of Sergio Perez, and the Aston Martin of Fernando Alonso completing the top five.

Perez, making his first appearance of the week, experienced a couple of wild moments as he got to grips with the RB20, locking up heavily into Turn 8 hairpin and then just about managing to hold a slide through the high-speed Turn 7.

Hamilton wound up sixth after his meeting with the debris, leading to detailed garage checks for himself and Leclerc, followed by Sauber’s Zhou Guanyu and Alpine’s Pierre Gasly.

The morning order was completed by Haas driver Nico Hulkenberg and RB’s Yuki Tsunoda, with more than six seconds covering the field as teams carried out a wide range of programs.
