Formula 1 Las Vegas GP

F1 Las Vegas GP qualifying - Start time, how to watch & more

Charles Leclerc topped the Friday practice times for Ferrari ahead of the Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix. Here’s how and when to watch qualifying.

On a frustrating day for F1, the opening action at the Las Vegas GP was ended after eight minutes of running in first practice after a water valve cover was dislodged by the cars.

The debris saw Carlos Sainz’s Ferrari and Esteban Ocon’s Alpine suffer serious damage, with the Spaniard controversially given a 10-place grid penalty for having to use an extra energy store for his Ferrari that was out of his allocation, with the stewards unable to avert applying the penalty in unusual circumstances. 

Further trouble followed when the track repairs delayed the start of FP2, that was extended to 90 minutes to make up for lost running in first practice, which meant fans had to leave the track before the session started due to security staff shifts ending. 

Despite the difficulty, Ferrari ended the day with a 1-2 led by Charles Leclerc, ahead of Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso in third. Sergio Perez placed his Red Bull fourth, with Alfa Romeo’s Valtteri Bottas fifth, in front of the other Red Bull of Max Verstappen in sixth.
