We saw more action in the Mugello FP2 than we have in most of the races this season, with not one but TWO red flags!
Bottas leads a Mercedes 1-2 in the Mugello FP2, with Verstappen coming in as third behind Hamilton by 0.039 seconds.
Romain Grosjean was the first retirement of the practice session due to electrical issues only 5 laps in, placing him at P20.
Ferrari’s FP2 didn’t go as well as FP1, unfortunately. Leclerc spun into Turn 12 and ended up coming 10th while Vettel reported issues with his engine at the end of the session, landing him P12
McLaren’s Lando Norris ran off the track at the exit of Turn 3 and spun into the wall. The impact broke off the MCL35’s front wing and the red flags were brought out to clean up the debris. Fortunately, Norris was safe and unhurt by the crash. He ended up as P14, right behind his teammate by 0.007s.
The second red flag was brought out when Raikonnen and Perez collided at Turn 1 just as Perez was exiting the pit lane, clipping Checo’s front wing as a result. Both drivers are safe and stand in P9 and P7 respectively.
