With practice time limited due to the Sprint weekend format, the biggest loser from the session was Charles Leclerc, who span at Turn 16 just nine minutes into FP1.

While he avoided the barriers, he was unable to engage reverse gear on his special-liveried Ferrari and get the car facing the right direction, prompting the red flags to be flown as he exited the car.
