RED BULL’S DANIEL RICCIARDO SETS FASTEST TIME IN FP2 ON ULTRASOFT, BREAKING MEXICO LAP RECORD FOR CURRENT CIRCUIT LAYOUT

31.10.2017

Free practice in Mexico was characterised by a high degree of track evolution on a slippery surface, but the all-time track record for the current layout was already broken in FP1 before being lowered further by Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo in FP2.


Ricciardo used the P Zero Purple ultrasoft tyre, brought to Mexico for the first time, to set his best time in the afternoon nearly two seconds faster than last year’s FP2 time and was also a pacesetter when it came to the long runs that simulated race stints.


The performance gap between the supersoft and ultrasoft compounds is in the region of 0.6 seconds so far. Weather conditions were mild but dry throughout the day in Mexico, with ambient temperatur es around 22 degrees centigrade and track temperatures peaking at 43 degrees.

For much of the day the track was very slippery, which made it quite hard to obtain representative data, although the grip improved as expected with more running. Nonetheless, as has already been the case at a number of other races this year, we saw the track record broken first in FP1, then lowered again in FP2, thanks as well to our nomination of a softer compound here compared to previous years. We expect the track to continue to evolve throughout the weekend as there is no chance of rain, and judging from the initial long run times in free practice, it seems that we should be in for a closely- fought weekend among the frontrunners. We’ve seen runs with all three compounds meaning that, as was the case in Austin, all three are suitable for the race.
