By Mike Sulka
Tightening at the front. Mercedes still best. Lewis Hamilton and his No. 44 Mercedes led the second practice for the 2017 Formula One F1 Spanish Grand Prix GP in Barcelona, Spain. Hamilton turned 39 laps with a fastest effort of 1:20.802.
Second quick was Valtteri Bottas and his No. 77 Mercedes who was just a tenth behind.
After being a second back in practice one, Ferrari picked up the pace with Kimi Raikkonen but he was still a solid three tenths off Hamilton. Sebastian Vettel and his No. 5 Ferrari was fourth quick and fourth tenths back.
Red Bull are closer than they were in the morning, but still over half a second back with Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo fifth and sixth quick respectively.
The top six were in the identical order they were in the first practice. Barcelona yields consistency due to familiarity.
Fernando Alonso made a few laps after another Honda engine blow-up in practice one.
Next up, practice session three for the 2017 Formula One F1 Spanish Grand Prix ahead of qualifying.
