Valtteri Bottas tops timesheet ahead of team-mate Lewis Hamilton in Mercedes one-two as Silver Arrows dominate first practice at Spanish GP

Valtteri Bottas led team-mate and Formula One championship leader Lewis Hamilton in a Mercedes one-two after first practice before Friday’s Spanish Grand Prix. Valtteri Bottas has set the early pace at the Spanish GP, topping first practice in Catalunya. Hamilton, who has a 30-point lead over Verstappen, has won the last three Spanish Grands Prix and is going for his fourth win in six races this season on Sunday. Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc was fourth fastest, 1.185 slower than Bottas, with German team mate Sebastian Vettel fifth and only 0.011 off the Monegasque’s pace. Vettel has a new chassis for the race after Ferrari found a crack in the one he had used last weekend.
