Charles Leclerc narrowly edges Ferrari team-mate Carlos Sainz in practice for the Spanish GP while Lewis Hamilton comes sixth, finishing a second off the pace at the Circuit de Catalunya

Championship leader Charles Leclerc edged out Carlos Sainz as Ferrari completed a one-two in practice for the Spanish Grand Prix. Leclerc, who heads Max Verstappen in the standings by 19 points, saw off Sainz by 0.079 seconds at Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya. World champion Verstappen finished third, one spot ahead of Mercedes’ George Russell with Lewis Hamilton sixth – almost one second off the pace. Hamilton is already 68 points behind Ferrari’s Leclerc with his dreams of a record-breaking eighth crown all but over for the year. However, both Hamilton and Russell did not appear to be bouncing up and down as vehemently as other races this year.
