Mercedes And Red Bull In Near Dead Heat After Second Practice Session Of 2021 French Grand Prix


After Mercedes led the way in the first practice session, Red Bull returned with a quicker time in the second practice session and created a near dead-heat with Max Verstappen edging Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas by a mere 0.008 seconds.

Meanwhile, Bottas’ Mercedes teammate, seven time-defending Formula One world champion, Lewis Hamilton, was not far back – only 0.253 seconds – but was complaining that there was “something not right with the car”.

Both Verstappen and Hamilton set their fastest times on soft tires – as Bottas did in the first practice session – but Bottas switched to the medium tires in the second practice session.
