Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc stayed on top in FP2 of F1 Spanish GP with Mercedes duo of George Russell and Lewis Hamilton doing a better job in second and third.

Much like how FP1 was, the FP2 session in F1 Spanish GP was sedate as well with Ferrari’s Leclerc leading the standings after setting a 1m19.670s lap. He led the two Mercedes duo in a surprise finish with Russell (1m19.787s) second and Hamilton (1m19.874s) third.

Leclerc’s teammate Carlos Sainz (1m19.990s) slotted in fourth with the first of Red Bull of Max Verstappen (1m20.006s) in fifth whereas his teammate Sergio Perez (1m20.632s) was seventh behind Alpine’s Fernando Alonso (1m20.203s).

The Mexican had his first chance this weekend after Juri Vips got his chance in FP1. After a difficult first part Aston Martin’s Sebastian Vettel (1m20.703s) was eighth from Alpine’s Esteban Ocon (1m20.745s) and Haas’ Mick Schumacher (1m20.757s) in the Top 10.

The German’s teammate Kevin Magnussen was 12th behind AlphaTauri’s Pierre Gasly with his teammate Yuki Tsunoda in 14th behind Aston Martin’s Lance Stroll. McLaren’s Daniel Ricciardo slotted in 15th with Alfa Romeo’s Valtteri Bottas in 16th.

The Finn though couldn’t see-through the season due to engine issue as he stopped on track causing a Virtual Safety Car. He was ahead of his teammate Guanyu Zhou as he led Williams pair of Alexander Albon and Nicholas Latifi.

The Thai racer is under investigation for impeding Sainz earlier in the session. The standings was rounded out by McLaren’s Lando Norris whose off moment damaged his floor and for that he couldn’t do more than three laps in the session.
