Second free practice session of the Russian Grand Prix this Friday afternoon. Discover the standings of this 60-minute session on the Sochi circuit. A flagged session following an Antonio Giovinazzi crash in the middle of the session.

Very good performance from Pierre Gasly during these free practice 2 with a 3rd place behind Bottas and Hamilton. Esteban Ocon is 5th while Fernando Alonso is 8th.

A second session which could be of capital importance for the race on Sunday. Indeed, heavy rains are announced for Saturday with a possibility that free practice 3 and qualifying cannot take place. And in the event that qualifying cannot take place, it is these FP2 (or FP3 if they take place) which would serve as the starting grid for Sunday’s Grand Prix (from 2 p.m. French time). Note that Max Verstappen and Charles Leclerc will start from the last row because they have changed several elements of their car. Especially the engine.

This session was marked by a big crash for Antonio Giovinazzi’s Alfa Romeo. Which interrupted the session for about ten minutes.
