F1 Practice Session Guide

( 1 Vote )

The event usually begins on Friday (except in Monaco where it begins on Thursday) with two free practice sessions, from 10:00 to 11:30 and from 14:00 to 15:30 (except in Singapore where it is 19:00 to 20:30, 21:30 to 23:00), for the drivers to learn the circuit and for the teams to experiment with their cars to figure out the best settings for the particular track.

Third drivers for teams that finished outside the top four of the previous season's World Constructors' Championship are allowed to take part in Friday's free practice sessions.

Another free practice session takes place on Saturday from 11:00 to 12:00 (19:00 to 20:00 in Singapore).

These practice sessions helps teams to build strategies, work on pitstop, drivers testing the new components, learning the track and behaviour on track put into different conditions.

In this season, main challenge for the drivers and team during the practice sessions remains the testing of New Pirelli Tyres, DRS Wing and KERS. Beside that Indian Grand Prix will debut on F1 Calendar whose insight can only be taken through the practice session only.
