Canadian driver Lance Stroll obtained the best record of the second free practice session of the British Grand Prix, held this afternoon at the Silverstone Circuit. The RP20 showed its strengths as anticipated on this high-speed track.

With a time of 1: 27.274, Lance Stroll outscored another young driver, Thai Alexander Albon, by 0.090s. However, for the Red Bull driver it was not a satisfactory day, as he lost control of his car and ended up against the protection barrier at turn 13, better known as Stowe. The blow was strong but luckily he is well. This generated a red flag for several minutes.

Third place was left to Finnish Mercedes Valtteri Bottas, followed by Charles Leclerc of Ferrari and teammate Lewis Hamilton. The current championship leader reported balance problems in the car due to strong winds.

Sixth place went to Carlos Sainz of McLaren, who improved his position compared to the previous session. Behind him was Nico Hülkenberg in the second session with Racing Point replacing Sergio Pérez. This time it was 0.636s from the time set by teammate Lance Stroll.

The top 10 was completed by Frenchman Pierre Gasly of AlphaTauri, Australian Daniel Ricciardo of Renault and Finnish Kimi Räikkönen of Alfa Romeo.

Max Verstappen led the first session, but in this he finished thirteenth. The Dutchman lost his fast lap because Romain Grosjean was in the middle of the track at the Becketts corner. This caused the Red Bull rider a great deal of discomfort and then went on to do the job for long runs.

Meanwhile Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari did not have an easy day. In the morning he was unable to turn due to issues with the power unit’s intercooler, and then in the afternoon a throttle problem occurred that left him out for a significant amount of time.

Today the ambient and track temperature was quite high, causing significant tire degradation. For the day of tomorrow a cooler climate is expected.

Tomorrow at 11:00 am Silverstone will start the third and last free test session and later at 14:00 pm the classification of the British Grand Prix with LIVE broadcast of F1Latam.com.
