- Carlos only completed two installation laps on full-wet tyres around the Circuit of the Americas in Free Practice 2, since the wet-tyre allocation is limited and they may be required for Qualifying.
- Despite the lack of running, the feeling overall was positive as he worked on a baseline set-up for damp conditions which may reoccur on Saturday.
"I was pretty happy with the car in the morning session and managed to put some decent laps together. Conditions at the end of FP2 were similar and I only did a quick out and in lap to test a couple of things and gather info. Tomorrow will be interesting; we think it’s going to be wet so it will be a good challenge for the drivers. I’m really looking forward to it".
Free Practice 3 and Qualifying will follow at 13:00 and 20:00 local time on Saturday, 20:00 and 23:00 Spanish time. Until then, you can be up-to-date with Carlos on social media and on his official website www.carlossainz.es.
