Friday Report – Bottas times two

Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas topped both Free Practice 1 and Free Practice 2 on the opening day of the Tuscan Grand Prix weekend. Bottas was quickest in FP1 with a time of 1:17.879, which was 0.048 of a second faster than Verstappen. At the 20 minute mark the order was: Verstappen, Norris, Perez, Stroll, Ocon, Albon, Grosjean, Kvyat and Vettel. Ricciardo turned a 1:18.039 to get second behind Bottas who had yet to do a qualifying sim. That brought out the red flags with 51 minutes remaining in the session. Hamilton, on the softs, was one of the first to head out. Then, with 16 minutes remaining, the session was red flagged again. Verstappen, Albon, Ricciardo, Ocon, Perez, Gasly, Raikkonen and Leclerc rounded out the top 10.
