After the ‘coconuts’, to the great surprise of the day: Carlos Sainz finished an outstanding fifth place, just ahead of the first Red Bull, the Daniel Ricciardo. The other, of his former teammate Max Verstappen, it was not the eighth position. Just in front of the Dutch, almost the same time, ended Fernando Alonso.
The session had a red flag triggered unexpectedly by Jolyon Palmer. The british prodded with his Renault, nothing more start of these second free practice session. Has not been the best day for the Enstone, after the problems he had Esteban Ocon with the same car in the first free.
Although for problems, which had Jenson Button. The british driver was only able to go for six turns (one of them is timed), before seeing how his McLaren was left standing in the pit lane. The mechanics of the british team had to devote almost the entire session to fix the fault, before you leave to lack of a little more than 20 minutes for the banderazo to boxes. The car of Alonso also went by the pits to check it out, but the Spanish suffered no major difficulties.
