FP2 REPORT: Bird goes quickest ahead of São Paulo qualifying

NEOM McLaren’s newest signing managed to finish the Free Practice session quickest. The Brit, who stood on the podium here last year, set a time of 1:12.773s in a session that was impacted by a red flag for Mahindra Racing’s. The session got off to a dramatic start, when Mitch Evans started crabbing around this bumpy 2.93km circuit. Evans was last year’s winner here, and the guy who topped the timesheets in FP1 yesterday, however he reported problems with his Jaguar just minutes into session, radioing that “the wheel keeps kicking back, I don’t know what it could be.”. The session did get back to green flag racing for the last minute, but left no time for setting fast laps. Instead, the grid completed some practice starts ahead of today’s race.
