But while Bottas did not improve he remained in first ahead of Hamilton (by one-tenth of a second), Gasly, Sainz, Leclerc and Perez. The session was red flagged with three minutes remaining when Leclerc hit the wall t. The top 10 at the end of FP2 were: Bottas, Hamilton, Gasly, Sainz, Leclerc, Perez, Tsunoda, Norris, Giovinazzi and Stroll.
