Good afternoon! We are ready to tell you everything that happens on the modified Yas Marina layout. Free Practice 2 of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix starts at 2:00 p.m.. That is, we have another 60 minutes of activity on the track. The teams will test things for tomorrow, where the matter is already getting serious with a classification that seems fundamental to the future of this race and, therefore, of the F1 World Cup.

It must be taken into account that in Free Practice 1 a impeccable and relentless since the beginning of this last event on the ‘Great Circus’ calendar. The Dutchman was first with a 1’25”009. For its part, it could not be even a second. His teammate Valtteri Bottas has surpassed him.

There are many unknowns to solve yet. This has only just begun. The two World Cup leaders are tied at 369.5 points and they know that they must calibrate every step they take.

Already in the morning, the possibility of Mercedes putting another engine in Hamilton’s car is being discussed in Abu Dhabi. A risky bet that has already paid off in Brazil. We will see what happens in this regard.

It is clear that no one here wants to show their cards. This is like a poker game where the stakes are very, very high.

For its part, has shone at the start of this great prize. The Spaniard has even dominated Free 1. In the end he was sixth. The plan of the two-time F1 world champion is to star in a good closing of the course. And then try to make the Alpine in 2022 a car capable of adding podiums and victories.

As to Carlos Sainz, the ’55’ has not felt comfortable, but has managed to react at the end of the first session to conclude within the ‘Top Ten’ (he has finished ninth).

And without further ado we started our live of Free 2.
