Valtteri Bottas tops first practice in Tuscany

Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas was fastest from Red Bull’s Max Verstappen in first practice at the Tuscan Grand Prix. The Finn was 0.048 seconds quicker than Verstappen around the spectacular and rapid Mugello circuit, which is hosting a grand prix for the first time. Hamilton’s lack of pace was a surprise – he is renowned for his ability to get up to speed quickly on new tracks and uncertain conditions – but he had a messy lap, running wide at the first corner. And for the first time in this coronavirus-affected season, spectators were allowed into the grandstands. The track is owned by Ferrari, and the race is named as well for the team’s landmark of reaching 1,000 F1 world championship grands prix.
