Turkish Grand Prix: Max Verstappen quickest on slippery Turkey track

Verstappen’s team-mate Alexander Albon was second, ahead of Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc and Pierre Gasly’s Alpha Tauri. Briton Hamilton will be champion as long as he does not lose more than seven points to Bottas. Hamilton, who can clinch a record-equalling seventh world title on Sunday, was more than five seconds off the pace. Verstappen was 0.241secs quicker than Albon, who was 0.189secs faster than Leclerc. There were a number of spins throughout the session as drivers struggled with the low-grip surface, with Bottas, Verstappen and Gasly joined by Alpha Tauri’s Daniil Kvyat and Williams’ Nicholas Latifi. It was a tough session for McLaren’s Carlos Sainz, who was called into the pits with an engine problem.
