Free Practice 2
A Steady Start To The Weekend For Honda Power In Turkey
There were encouraging signs but still work to do for both Honda-powered teams after a solid Friday practice in Turkey.
On a track offering much more grip than a year ago - to the tune of six seconds per lap in FP1 - much of Friday was spent trying to understand car balance on a very different circuit compared to our last visit.
The two Red Bull Racing cars were looking resplendent in their special Honda liveries for this weekend and Max duly kicked off proceedings with the second quickest time, while Sergio was tenth. For Scuderia AlphaTauri, Pierre started the weekend with the eighth fastest time, while Yuki built up his confidence on another new track for him and was 18th.
