Azerbaijan F1 Grand Prix 2017 Qualifying: Results, Times from Friday's Practice

On a day of heat and many incidents, including a red-flagged halt to the action in both sessions, Verstappen's Red Bull Australian team-mate Daniel Ricciardo was third fastest in second practice ahead of Finn Kimi Raikkonen and his Ferrari team-mate championship leading five-time champion German Sebastian Vettel.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen set the fastest time in first practice at the 2017 Azerbaijan Formula One Grand Prix in Baku on Friday as he posted a lap of one minute, 44.410 seconds. He finished the session last, 4.4s off the pace.

"We can still be in the fight for pole", Hamilton said.

Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas of Finland steers his auto during the first free practice at the Formula One Azerbaijan Grand Prix in Baku, Azerbaijan, Friday, June 23, 2017. "It's just a case of getting our heads together tonight to work out exactly how to extract that pace". "Today was a good day obviously for myself and Max and hopefully tomorrow we can stay at the front where we are". Vettel, meanwhile, went off at Turn 8.

The only negative for Red Bull on Friday was Verstappen locking up and hitting the barriers at Turn One in the closing seconds of Practice Two, causing significant damage to the left-hand side and rear of his vehicle.

Palmer's crash brought out a red flag that meant a number of drivers could not get in a quick lap time on the super-soft tyre, promtping a mixed up timesheet.

Trump Cheerleaders Turn on Special Counsel Mueller
Spicer had said that Ruddy was at the White House Monday to meet with White House aides, but did not speak with the president. Mueller, "he has no intention to do so", the White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters late Tuesday.

McLaren's problems also continued and both of their drivers, Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne, will start from the back of the grid on Sunday due to engine penalties. Vettel went straight on at Turn 1. McLaren are the only team yet to score a point this season and their relationship with Honda is now at an all-time low. Despite running this compound, Verstappen was running 3rd and Ricciardo 6th as the session approached its halfway point.

The first practice got underway under a clear sky with track temperatures at a blistering 54 degrees C (129 degrees F). But he could only do a time that put him in fourth with a 1:44.309.

It promises to be a tricky one. The Renault driver's mistake proved particularly costly as he shunted at Turn 8, making the same error that Sergio Perez made in the opening practice session on Friday.

Drivers were being severely tested in other sections, too. Romain Grosjean set the first timed lap of the day, but only after locking up his brakes on his way round, suggesting Haas are still struggling to get on top of their perennial brake issues.

The session was an unhappy one for the Englishman as he struggled to "hook up" his vehicle to the required set-up for the circuit, but at least he kept away from the walls.
