            <p>SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS, Belgium - Ferrari&#39;s Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc were fastest on Friday in the first free practice session of the Belgian GP, ​​the 13th round of the F1 World Championship.

In warm, sunny weather, they beat Max Verstappen's Red Bulls and Alexander Albon, who made his debut for the team after being "swapped" with Pierre Gasly, who took his place in the sister team Toro Rosso. The Frenchman achieved the 18th time of this session.

Valtteri Bottas' Mercedes and current World Championship leader Lewis Hamilton are next, ahead of Quebec's Racing Point Lance Stroll and Daniel Ricciardo's Renault.

Note that the French team has decided to equip its cars with a new engine for this race, which will be worth to Ricciardo and his teammate Nico Hulkenberg a penalty of 5 places on the grid.

Other drivers penalized for the same reason include Alexander Albon (10), Lance Stroll (10), Daniel Kvyat (10) and Carlos Sainz (5).

Another notable feature was the participation of two Canadians in this session, with Nicolas Latifi leading the Williams, usually assigned to George Russell, who will resume driving for the rest of the GP, which will start on Sunday. Latifi made the penultimate lap in front of his teammate for a day, Robert Kubica.
