The fastest driver of the second training session, Englishman Louis Hemilton, went on the track 13 minutes after the start of the training, but it did not prevent the “” Mercedes “pilot from driving 25 laps and showing the fastest lap time – 1: 23.246 seconds. A little more than two tenths behind the leader was his teammate Valteri Botass, who completed the track in his fastest lap in 1: 23.468 minutes. The third fastest in the second training session was the season leader Max Verstapen from the “Red Bull Racing Honda” team.
In the middle of the training session, Ferrari pilot Carlos Sains did not control his formula and crashed, putting up red flags and stopping the training runs. The accident of the Spanish pilot on his team’s home track posed a serious task for the Ferrari mechanics, who have a little more than three hours to put the Saints formula in order and the pilot could take part in the sprint race.
Already today, at 17:30, the 18-lap sprint will start, but the Italian “Grand Prix” stage will take place tomorrow at 16:00.
