Mercedes is faster than Ferrari during the second training session GP of China

At the end of the second training session for the GP of China, it was Valtteri Bottas who has the fastest time allowed note. Thus, he was just slightly faster than Sebastian Vettel.

After Ferrari have a comfortable lead and seemed to have after the first free practice for the GP of China, it was Valtteri Bottas who showed that Mercedes in the battle will mix in Shanghai.

The Fin was just a little faster than Sebastian Vettel. Max Verstappen drove to a third time, even though there was still room for improvement in his fast lap.

Furthermore, there is nothing remarkable to note. Both Lewis Hamilton as Charles Leclerc did not succeed in making out all the stops to pick up during their fast laps.

Renault and McLaren look very strong at the Shanghai International Circuit, making it the battle for ‘best of the rest’ seem to be going to contest in China.
