After a two-week break, Formula 1 continues and this time the Portuguese Grand Prix, which was last held in 1996, is coming up. SPOX explains to you where you can watch the 1st and 2nd free practice on TV, live stream and live ticker.
1. Free practice in Portimao: Mercedes sets the tone
As expected, the Mercedes duo set the tone for the start of the Grand Prix premiere in Portimao on Friday. The Finn Valtteri Bottas set the best lap time ahead of the Englishman Lewis Hamilton. On his best lap, Bottas was a good three tenths faster than the world champion. Behind Hamilton there was an even greater time gap. Third-placed Dutchman Max Verstappen in the Red Bull lost almost eight tenths to Bottas.
The lap times were not in the foreground during the first 90 minutes. It was rather about getting to know the circuit and exploring the limit area. The search for the limit was not an easy task, because the recently paved track did not yet offer the usual grip. Lance Stroll, who last had to pass in the race at the Nürburgring, was also there. He had tested positive for the corona virus just under two weeks ago.
For the first time in 24 years, a Grand Prix of Portugal will take place on the track in the Algarve in the south of the country, which was inaugurated twelve years ago. Between 1984 and 1996, the premier class was a guest in Estoril, west of the capital Lisbon.
