Toto Wolff confirmed that Mercedes have brought more upgrades to the 2024 Spanish GP, and it seems they are working well with Hamilton just 0.022s ahead of Sainz in the FP2 results. After topping FP1, Lando Norris was just 0.055s adrift of Hamilton in his McLaren.

Despite the upheaval at Alpine, which has seen Flavio Briatore join the team as an advisor, Pierre Gasly ended the second practice session fourth, ahead of Red Bull driver Max Verstappen, who was 0.240s behind Hamilton’s time at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalyuna.

Fight for pole position

As second practice commenced, most teams opted for medium or hard compounds. Logan Sargeant had an early scare, managing to regain control of his Williams, which this weekend mirrors Alex Albon’s specification.

The session’s focus then shifted to soft tyre runs. Sainz was the first to top the timesheets, delighting his home crowd in the Ferrari, before Hamilton took P1 by just 0.02s with a 1:13.264s lap.

Meanwhile, Verstappen reported understeer issues with his RB20, remarking, “This car doesn’t bite” eventually coming in fifth.

Charles Leclerc secured sixth for Ferrari, followed by McLaren’s Oscar Piastri in seventh and George Russell in eighth, scattering the top four teams across the top eight positions. Esteban Ocon of Alpine and Valtteri Bottas of Sauber completed the top ten.

Kevin Magnussen and Nico Hulkenberg, the latter getting his first running of the weekend after Oliver Bearman drove his car in FP1, were 11th and 12th for Haas. Sergio Perez, who had a delayed switch to soft tyres, finished 13th.

Fernando Alonso, 11 years after his last F1 victory at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, placed 14th for Aston Martin. RB’s Yuki Tsunoda and Daniel Ricciardo followed in 15th and 16th, respectively. Zhou Guanyu, reverting to an older chassis to rebuild confidence in his C44, was 17th for Sauber, with Lance Stroll’s Aston Martin in 18th.

Williams teammates Albon and Sargeant finished at the back in 19th and 12th.
