FREE PRACTICE 1: Vergne sets early benchmark in first Misano practice

The DS PENSKE duo of Jean-Eric Vergne and Stoffel Vandoorne dominated the timesheets in first and second positions during the championship’s first visit to Misnao. Troubles down at Mahindra Racing saw home hero Edoardo Mortara unable to set a single lap, with Maserati MSG Racing’s Maximilian Guenther facing problems during the first Free Practice. His teammate Nyck de Vries did get out and picked up some data for the team, but didn’t set a timed lap until over 15 minutes into the session when he went 1m20.576s to go into 17th. The five-time race winner limped back to the pits and stated a brake failure was to blame. Tomorrow it’s on to race day on Saturday 13 April as Free Practice 2 kicks off the day at 08:00 local, qualifying follows at 10:20 local with lights out on Round 6 at 15:00 local.
