Austrian Grand Prix: Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton fastest in second practice

Last updated on Less than a minute agoLess than a minute ago.From the section Formula 1. Lewis Hamilton set the pace in second practice at the Austrian Grand Prix to give Mercedes hope of clawing back some lost ground to Red Bull. Hamilton beat team-mate Valtteri Bottas by 0.189 seconds, while title rival Max Verstappen was 0.217secs back. The Red Bull driver moved 18 points clear of Hamilton in the championship after dominating Sunday’s Styrian Grand Prix on the same Red Bull Ring track. In the hotter conditions last weekend, Mercedes always looked to be behind Red Bull from Friday practice onwards. He managed to get back on to the track but returned to the pits for his car to be cleaned up and managed to get out again for some more race preparation.
