Bottas Sweeps Portuguese Grand Prix Practice

PORTIMAO, Portugal – Valtteri Bottas swept both Formula One practice sessions on Friday at Algarve Int’l Circuit during the opening day of activity for the Portuguese Grand Prix. Bottas turned the fastest lap of the day, a time of 1:17.940 around the 4.653-kilometer, 15-turn course, during FP2. The track was evolving lap by lap, and it got better throughout the day, but maybe it was reset slightly in between the two sessions, and with red flags in second practice there wasn’t that much useful running. The balance of the car was also pretty good,” Bottas added. Through all the chaos, Red Bull’s Verstappen was second-quick for the day, .595 seconds adrift of Bottas in the second practice.
