Russian GP: Max Verstappen tops close practice

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen was a surprise pacesetter as he headed Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc in second practice at the Russian Grand Prix.
But they are poised for a difficult weekend because both Verstappen and team-mate Alexander Albon have a five-place grid penalty for using too many engine parts.
Bottas is always strong in Russia, where he has never been out-qualified by a team-mate, and he appeared to have an edge on Hamilton throughout the day.
He missed some of the session because of floor damage and when he did emerge to set a fast lap was more than two seconds slower than Verstappen.
