Lewis Hamilton top in Bahrain Grand Prix practice as Alex Albon crashes

Alexander Albon suffered a heavy crash in second practice at the Bahrain Grand Prix, leaving his Red Bull career hanging by a thread. The British-Thai driver is trying to prove to Red Bull that he deserves to be kept on for 2021. But his crash, in which he was uninjured, was the latest in a series of incidents that are undermining his case. At the time, he was 0.7 seconds slower than team-mate Max Verstappen and trying to improve. “[I’ve] had a few of them so used to it,” said Albon. Hamilton’s fastest time was just over 0.3 seconds faster than Verstappen, with the Briton’s team-mate Valtteri Bottas 0.018secs behind the Dutchman.
