Max Verstappen fastest in French Grand Prix second practice

The Dutchman led Bottas by just 0.008 seconds, with Hamilton 0.253secs off the pace and complaining that there was “something not right with the car”. Verstappen and Hamilton set their fastest times – as expected – on the soft tyre while Bottas was on mediums. Bottas’ fastest time was set on the theoretically slower medium tyre as he failed to improve on the soft. And while Verstappen found an extra second’s worth of lap time when he switched to the soft tyre, Hamilton improved by only 0.1secs. Bottas ran a different tyre strategy for his race runs so his times were not directly comparable to the other two.
