Racing Point continues to surprise this season at the Formula 1 World Championship. Friday afternoon, Lance Stroll took the best time of the second free practice session in 1’27”274 ahead of Alexandrer Albon ( Red Bull Racing) at 0”090 but the latter was the victim of a track excursion. Valtteri Bottas (Mercedes) completes the top three, at 0”157. On the French side, Pierre Gasly (AlphaTauri) points to 8e rank, Esteban Ocon (Renault F1) at 12e and Romain Grosjean at 16e.
