Valtteri Bottas completed the second practice session with a 1:33.330 completing 37 laps.

The Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel was 0.027 seconds away.

Charles Leclerc run of bad luck continues as he managed 7th quickest (0.828s) behind Valtteri Bottas.

The Ferrari team are investing a fluid leak on his car, which indicates a possible cooling issue.

Reliability will be key this weekend, fantastic back straight and high temperatures will make the power units quite vulnerable.

Ferrari I feel are under the most pressure to deliver this weekend and that's when the team loose the processes and make mistakes.
