The Knight brought his A-game to the second practice session of the day. Hamilton found himself second on the timesheet, behind his Mercedes teammate, Valtteri Bottas.

Additionally, the Brit can have some breathing space for Sunday’s race, as his arch-rival and title contender, Max Verstappen will be starting from the back of the grid as he got a new power unit.

Hamilton is well aware that he will have to use this opportunity to grab maximum points from the Russian Grand Prix if he wants to regain the lead in the championship.
