Formula 1 – Brazilian GP Practice: Valterri Bottas Overcomes Lewis Hamilton
Valtteri Bottas driven Lewis Hamilton to a Mercedes one-two in second practice at the Brazilian Grand Prix.
Bottas was simply 0.003secs speedier than Hamilton, and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel was only 0.073secs off the pace in third.
However, Ferrari, who still have any desires for wresting the constructors’ title from Mercedes, demonstrated significantly more grounded pace in race trim.
