The fastest cars in the world went to the Imola track this Friday, with the first two free practice sessions for the Emilia Romagna GP. Mercedes responded to the critics, with Valtteri Bottas leading the two sessions ahead of Lewis Hamilton. But, before the weekend continues, the Brazilian Motorsport.com team selected a few more betting tips after both practices, based on what the teams showed.
Pierre Gasly showed a good pace in both practice sessions this Friday, placing 5th in the FP1 and 3rd in the FP2. Since the pre-season tests, AlphaTauri has shown a good pace, using the Honda engine. If he is not involved in any confusion at the start of the race, everything indicates that the French driver can bring a good result home. Top-6: Pierre Gasly
A target of criticism since arriving in F1, Nikita Mazepin has confirmed the projection of the worst driver on the grid, not only due to the performance of Haas, but also with the accidents he has been providing since Bahrain GP practices, totaling seven incidents. With that, it is likely that the young Russian will be the first to bid farewell to Sunday's race. First driver to retire: Nikita Mazepin
Ferrari, not even close, remembers the 2020 season, with results that left the tifosi with nightmares every race weekend. This Friday, once again, the duo Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz showed good consistency, despite the Monegasque's accident at the end of the 2nd free practice. With that, you can believe that the two red cars will be in the top-10. Both cars in points: Ferrari
