Lewis Hamilton may well be on course for his 5th F1 world championship in Sunday’s 2018 United States Grand Prix after finishing Friday’s FP1 in the wet 1.3 secs faster than any other driver with a lap in 1 min, 47.502 secs.

The drenched Texas track meant most drivers were prevented from posting more than a few laps in the 2nd session.

The MercedesAMC driver will successfully defend his world title at the Circuit of the Americas Sunday if he wins and Ferrari’s (NYSE:RACE) Sebastian Vettel, 2nd in the standings, finishes 3rd or lower.

Valtteri Bottas was 2nd-fastest to team-mate in FP1 setting a second-session best of 1 min, 48.716 secs.

Mr. Vettel faces a make-or-break weekend at COTA, the wet conditions did not provide the practice performance he was looking for as he settled for 10th in 2nd practice.

Taking the wet weather into consideration there was only so much one could do in the early practice session. Much of the 1st hour was tentative for the drivers, who looked uncertain to test even the heavier tires on a wet track.

Most drivers managed to record around 10 to 15 laps despite the rain, Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen clocked 20.

MercedesAMG dominated early on in Austin, but the uncertain conditions mean that could all change Saturday, when both drivers and manufacturers hope for clearer conditions in Texas as their bravery and prowess were put to the test Friday in the wet

MercedesAMG have finished the last 2 F1 Grands Prix in Russia and Japan 1-2, and Friday’s 1st hints the same might come to fruition Sunday.
