Turkish Grand Prix: Max Verstappen tops second practice as Mercedes struggle

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen led Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc as Mercedes struggled in second practice at the Turkish Grand Prix. This meant lap times were hugely slower than predicted – and even 13 seconds off those set in qualifying in 2011, since when Formula 1 cars have become several seconds a lap faster. Leclerc’s pace was encouraging for Ferrari, second fastest and just 0.4secs off Verstappen, while Alexander Albon had a positive day in the second Red Bull. Although the British-Thai ended the day a second off Verstappen, he set a series of fastest laps and looked more comfortable than he has of late.
