The team Red Bull started off on the right foot the weekend of Turkish Grand Prix, 14th date of the 2020 World Cup F1, being the main protagonist of Friday's training sessions led by the Dutchman Max Verstappen, which was the fastest in both sessions.

The first training session helped drivers and teams get in tune with the Istanbul Circuit, which the category visited for the last time in 2011. Verstappen led the trial with 1: 35.077 and was 241/1000 ahead of his Thai teammate Alex Albon, whose continuity in the structure is still being evaluated by the managers of the Austrian team.

With the track more rubberized, the times were much better in the second practice. Verstappen was the benchmark again, but with 1: 28.330. Behind was the Monegasque Charles Leclerc (Ferrari) at 401/1000.

This first day of activity showed in an unusual place the pilots of Mercedes, that in the past Emilia Romagna GP achieved his seventh Builders Cup consecutive. Finnish Valtteri Bottas he was the best in the two trials with 9th and 3rd place; while the English champion Lewis Hamilton finished 15th and 4th.

Hamilton, precisely, this Sunday will have the first chance to liquidate the fight for the title in his favor. So that this does not happen in advance, Bottas should win and hope that his teammate does not score points ...

The activity will continue on Saturday with the last training and classification, which will take place from 9 to 10 in Argentina. The race, meanwhile, will be held on Sunday from 7.10 in our country.
