Lewis Hamilton set the pace with a blistering benchmark around Istanbul Park on the way to P1 in the second practice session on Friday.

The Mercedes driver's fastest time of 1m 23.804s put him over a tenth clear of Ferrari's Charles Leclerc and meant that the championship leader led both FP1 and FP2 to open the 2021 Turkish Grand Prix weekend.
