Leclerc leads Ferrari one-two in practice

26th July 2019, 16:14 by Craig Smithson

Ferrari dominated second practice at the German Grand Prix as Charles Leclerc led Sebastian Vettel in a one-two finish.

The 21-year-old Monegasque driver topped the timesheets with a 1:13.449, a tenth of a second ahead of Vettel in high temperatures at Hockenheim on Friday.

Mercedes' driver and current championship leader Lewis Hamilton was 0.146secs behind Leclerc as the Scuderia dominated on the opening day.

Vettel had earlier edged out Leclerc in first practice with Hamilton also third in that session, while his team-mate Valtteri Bottas was fourth in P2 after trading places with Red Bull's Max Verstappen from P1.

Verstappen's team-mate Pierre Gasly lost control at the last corner and smashed into the barrier on the outside of the track, badly damaging his Red Bull car during second practice.
