Formula 1 – Brazilian GP Practice: Valterri Bottas Overcomes Lewis Hamilton

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.

Renault’s Nico Hulkenberg had an overwhelming accident at the dubious Juncao corner.

The tight left-hander is a standout amongst the most vital curves on the track, as it leads on to the long, tough pit straight. Hulkenberg ran somewhat wide and held his foot down as the auto kept running off the kerb on to the grass, which pitched him into the divider.

The episode drew out the warning for six minutes as the destruction was cleared. It was the main real episode in the session.

The Red Bulls of Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen were fourth and fifth, in front of Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen, with Haas’ Romain Grosjean best of the rest in front of Sauber’s Charles Leclerc.
