Abu Dhabi GP: Bottas fastest again in incident-hit second practice

Valtteri Bottas completed a ‘double top’ in Friday’s incident-hit practice for the Abu Dhabi grand prix when he out-paced Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton under the lights at the Yas Marina Circuit.The 30-year-old Finn, who was quickest ahead of Red Bull’s Max Verstappen in the opening session, followed that up by outpacing six-times champion Hamilton in the later ‘twilight’ session as Mercedes produced a resounding one-two.He made good use of a new power unit that had been installed following his engine failure in Brazil and which led to him taking penalties that mean he will start Sunday’s race from the back of the grid.And that’s a wrap for FP2TOP 10:1 BOT2 HAM3 LEC4 VET5 VER6 ALB7 GRO8 PER9 KVY10 GAS#AbuDhabiGP ???? #F1 pic.twitter.com/teJVIB9fJB— Formula 1 (@F1) November 29, 2019 Bottas, who on Thursday announced he was splitting from his wife Emilia, also crashed into Haas’s Romain Grosjean late in the second session of an eventful day.
