Lewis Hamilton dominates to go fastest in Turkish Grand Prix first practice ahead of Max Verstappen… on weekend where he will suffer a 10-place grid penalty after engine change

Lewis Hamilton went fastest in first practice ahead of the Turkish Grand Prix, on a weekend where the Brit will take a 10-place grid penalty. Hamilton heads into the weekend with just a two-point lead in the world championship over Red Bull’s Max Verstappen and, despite the blow of the penalty, would have been boosted after the first session in Istanbul saw him dominate to go four tenths faster than his chief title rival. Hamilton was more than four tenths quicker than Verstappen with a time of 1:24.178 during the morning session, boosting hopes that he could have the pace to make overtaking cars on Sunday easier following his grid demotion.
