Friday Report – As usual

It was business as usual during Friday afternoon’s practice for the Italian Grand Prix with Mercedes teammates Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas at the top of the time sheets. Twenty minutes into the session the order was Gasly, Sainz, Leclerc, Stroll, Ricciardo and Giovinazzi. Just past the 30 minute mark all the drivers were in the pits as they prepared for their qualifying simulations and the top 10 were: Hamilton, Bottas, Verstappen, Gasly, Ocon, Sainz, Stroll, Albon, Ricciardo and Giovinazzi. It was Bottas who took the lead with a 1:20.454, but Hamilton beat that with his 1:20.192. Verstappen slotted into third ahead of Sainz, Kvyat, Leclerc, Stroll and Gasly. And so, with 35 minutes remaining, the order was Hamilton, Bottas, Gasly, Verstappen, Sainz and Kvyat. The top 10 at the end of FP2 were: Hamilton, Bottas, Norris, Gasly, Verstappen, Sainz, Kvyat, Stroll, Leclerc and Perez.
