United States Grand Prix: Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc head practice sessions

Sainz led Red Bull’s Max Verstappen, who clinched his second title at the last race in Japan, by 0.224 seconds in the first session. Leclerc topped second practice, run as a test to assess 2023 tyres. Leclerc’s fastest time was set on 2022 Pirelli tyres – he was one of the few drivers to be able to run this year’s tyres for some of the second session because he did not take part in the first, in which his car was driven by Ferrari development driver Robert Schwartzman. In the second session, Alfa Romeo’s Valtteri Bottas and McLaren’s Daniel Ricciardo were second and third fastest, also with times set on the 2022 tyres.
