    They have a bit more time to dial in and gather some more data tomorrow but it's going to come down to one or two flying laps in Q3 for qualifying.

  4. Chequered flag

    There's the chequered flag and Lewis Hamilton finishes fastest in second practice for the Spanish Grand Prix.

  5. Post update

    Daniel Ricciardo is told that the wind is picking up. It shouldn't be too much of an issue with just two minutes of the session remaining.

  6. Post update

    Romain Grosjean reports a loss of power and dives back into the pits. That's possibly a disappointing end to what has been a good day for him.

  7. Post update

    Valtteri Bottas runs wide at Turn 12 and kicks up a load of gravel onto the track - something for the other drivers to keep an eye on with 10 minutes of the session remaining.

  8. Post update

    "Both axles, zero grip," reports George Russell. "It is like driving on ice!"

    Russell is propping up the timesheet with 1:19.391. He's two tenths slower than the next slowest time.

    I think he was having more fun in P1 when he was part of the pit crew.

  9. Post update

    Lewis Hamilton continues to hold the fastest lap time with the 1:16.883 set midway through the session. He's currently on a long run on mediums, while Valtteri Bottas is on the hards for his race sim.

  10. Post update

    A ticking off for Carlos Sainz as he uses an old part of the track at Turn 13. He's currently seventh quickest with 1:18.214.

  11. Post update

    "The wear balance feels better," says Valtteri Bottas about his tyres.

    He did 15 laps on the softs before moving back onto hards.

  12. Not a lot in it

    The times are so close from fifth down to 16th - six tenths of a seconds - and that is someone going out in Q1 and someone qualifying in fifth position on the grid! It's not a lot.

  13. Post update

    Lewis Hamilton does a practice start at the pit lane exit as Valtteri Bottas continues to circulate on the softs. He's 12 laps deep on them now.
