Australian GP, Practice Two: Lewis Hamilton fastest, Mercedes ahead | F1 News

Lewis Hamilton enjoyed the perfect start to his F1 2019 season by topping both of the Australian GP’s opening practice sessions, with Mercedes opening up a significant advantage over their rivals.

After Hamilton only marginally edged out the Ferraris in first practice, the world champion led a dominant Mercedes one-two in Practice Two.

Valtteri Bottas finished 0.048s behind Hamilton’s 1:22.600 in the sister W10, but Red Bull’s Max Verstappen was the closest non-Mercedes, eight tenths of a second off the pace in third and just ahead of team-mate Pierre Gasly.
