15 Nov

At the end of it, Lewis Hamilton is a seven-time World Champion, but there's still plenty to be decided elsewhere in the standings. The first of the final three races is in Bahrain in two weeks time, and we'll be here to cover it from FP1 to race-day, so

15 Nov

Well, what a race weekend that was from start to finish. It's fair to say we won't see another quite like it for a long time.

15 Nov

Oh, and if Perez doesn't get a seat for next year, it's a huge injustice. Are you listening, Red Bull?

15 Nov

Something feels right about Vettel, argubaly the biggest rival of his career - and a close friend - sharing the podium with him for this moment.

15 Nov

Hamilton is emotional, and quite right too. What a drive, what an achievement, and what a driver. Statistically, and in the eyes of many, he's the best ever.

15 Nov

The full result: P1 Hamilton, P2 Perez, P3 Vettel, P4 Leclerc, P5 Sainz, P6 Verstappen, P7 Albon, P8 Norris, P9 Stroll, P10 Ricciardo, P11 Ocon, P12 Kvyat, P13 Gasly, P14 Bottas, P15 Raikkonen, P16 Russell, P17 Magnussen, P18 Grosjean, P19 Latifi, P20 Gi

15 Nov

Norris passed Stroll late on to take P8. The Canadian will be wondering how things went so wrong so quickly after leading comfortably for a good while. Ricciardo took the final point.

15 Nov

Verstappen, on the other hand, won't be pleased with P6, and the same can be said for Albon in P7. Both had the win within reach at one point.

15 Nov

Sainz ever so nearly passed Leclerc too, but will be happy with P5 nonetheless.

15 Nov

Leclerc tries to pass Perez but it's too ambitious and he ends up losing out to Vettel! Perez comes home in P2 and Vettel P3!

15 Nov

Lewis Hamilton wins the Turkish Grand Prix and his seventh World Championship! What a moment!

15 Nov

Leclerc right behind Perez...

15 Nov

Final lap. No rain in sight.

15 Nov

Mercedes wanted to pit Hamilton in case of rain, but he overrules the order and stays out.

15 Nov

Bottas, having been told there are four laps to go, replies: "I wish it was less." He's been lapped by Alex Albon.

15 Nov

Ferrari has just told Vettel heavy rain is expected for the final lap...

15 Nov

Leclerc's pass has now dropped off. The win is Hamilton's, barring disaster. The question is now whether Perez can stay out and take P2.

15 Nov

Verstappen spins while running behind Albon. He doesn't lose a place though.

15 Nov

Hamilton and Perez will surely pit, which will lose them around 20 seconds each. Leclerc is currently 25 seconds behind the leader and catching...

15 Nov

Norris dives down the inside of Ricciardo who subsequently spins. He's now down to P10.

15 Nov

With 10 laps to go, Hamilton looks to have the win wrapped up. Behind him, Perez is still in P2 with a decent gap behind to the Ferraris, but his tyres will be getting old...

15 Nov

Bottas made life rather difficult for his team-mate when finally letting him through. Toto may be having a word with him tonight...

15 Nov

Sainz passes Albon and moves up to P5. Not going well for Red Bull...

15 Nov

The Dutchman pits and comes out in P7, ahead of Stroll.

15 Nov

Leclerc uses DRS to pass Verstappen for P3. He's flying.

15 Nov

Latifi pulls in to the pits to retire after colliding with Grosjean.

15 Nov

Hamilton has lapped Bottas. Not a great moment for the Finn...

15 Nov

Sainz takes P7 from Stroll. He's sinking like a stone.

15 Nov

Bottas has spun. Again. Seriously. At this rate, Hamilton will lap him.

15 Nov

Albon now passes Stroll. It's all gone wrong for the Canadian.

15 Nov

Leclerc takes P4 from Vettel.

15 Nov

The Racing Points are both struggling now. It looks like both cars were set up purely for wet conditions.

15 Nov

Vettel passes Stroll, the Canadian tries to retake the place but goes wide and falls behind both Ferraris!

15 Nov

He's five seconds clear already. He's the big favourite for the win now.

15 Nov

Hamilton passes Perez in the DRS zone to take the lead!

15 Nov

Stroll pits! He puts on inters and comes out between Verstappen and Vettel.

15 Nov

Hamilton is rapidly catching the front two. Given Perez is quicker than Stroll, Racing Point would be wise to have the Canadian let him through before the Mercedes catches up.

15 Nov

Perez is just over a second behind Stroll, with Hamilton a further 3.5 down.

15 Nov

He's now pitted and has come out behind Vettel and just ahead of Leclerc.

15 Nov

Albon spins! What a disaster for the Red Bull who had a win in his sights. He's now in P4 behind Hamilton.

15 Nov

Ferrari has seen that pace and thus brought Vettel in for the same. However, it was a poor stop.

15 Nov

Leclerc has pitted for fresh inters and is now fastest on track. He's currently P9.

15 Nov

DRS being enabled is usually an indication that the track is dry enough for dry tyres. That being said, the drivers all say it's still way too slippery.

15 Nov

We're halfway through the race, and DRS has just been enabled...

15 Nov

Verstappen is to be invesigated after the race for crossing the line at the pit-exit.

15 Nov

Just to make things more interesting, Vettel is now flying. He's pulled away from Hamilton and is quickly catching the front three.

15 Nov

Both of them have caught Stroll hugely. The Canadian is now only four seconds ahead. The fight for the win is on.

15 Nov

Right then, Albon has caught Perez. Could this battle determine who drives for Red Bull next season? No pressure, Alex.

15 Nov

Bottas goes for his third spin of the day. He must be getting dizzy...

15 Nov

Verstappen is udner investigation for crossing the line at the pit-exit. That usually results in a penalty...

15 Nov

Albon is flying. If he can pass Perez quickly, he could be in with a chance of the win...

15 Nov

Albon is now in P3 and catching Perez. Vettel is a further 10 seconds back and still holding off Hamilton.

15 Nov

He got too close to Perez at the wrong part of the track. Considering how much quicker he was, holding back until the straight may have been wise...

15 Nov

He flatspotted his tyres and has now pitted, rejoining in P8.

15 Nov

Verstappen spins! He was all over Perez and tried to pass at Turn 11 but lost control!

15 Nov

Bottas spins and drops down to P15. The fat lady is starting to sing for the 2020 title fight...

15 Nov

Albon has now passed Vettel and is pulling away from both of them.

15 Nov

Hamilton tries to pass Vettel but goes too wide and loses a place to Albon!

15 Nov

Racing has now resumed. Stroll has a nine second lead over his team-mate, who has Verstappen right behind him.

15 Nov

We have a VSC while his car is moved by the marshalls.

15 Nov

Giovinazzi becomes the first retirement of the race with a mechanical problem.

15 Nov

The Red Bull has been rewarded for excellent pace on his wets and is now pulling away from Vettel, who seems to be struggling on inters.

15 Nov

Verstappen pits and comes out ahead of Vettel!

15 Nov

Hamilton has just gone three seconds quicker than the Dutchman though and is all over Vettel and Perez, the latter of whom had a poor stop.

15 Nov

Perez follows suit a lap later. Verstappen now leads and wants to stay out. He's flying on his wets right now.

15 Nov

Stroll comes in for inters. Perez and the Red Bulls stay out.

15 Nov

Can Verstappen pull off the overcut on Vettel now? He's put in a good first sector.

15 Nov

Vettel does the same, as does Hamilton.

15 Nov

Bottas dives in for inters.

15 Nov

He's gone purple in his first lap on them...

15 Nov

Leclerc pits for intermediates. That's a gamble for Ferrari. If his pace is good, expect the pitlane to get very busy very quickly.

15 Nov

Perez is starting to pick up the pace and catch his team-mate. The gap has dropped by a second in the last few laps...

15 Nov

With no DRS and no grip, Verstappen just can't find a way past Vettel. To his credit, the German is driivng flawlessly so far.

15 Nov

Replays show that, after spinning at Turn 1, Bottas then hit Ocon and went round again at Turn 9 on the first lap. He's currently P16.

15 Nov

He's now back on the gearbox of Vettel, and needs to pass him ASAP if he wants to win this race. Stroll is running away with it at the moment.

15 Nov

Verstappen has a big moment and now has his team-mate all over him.

15 Nov

Everyone seems to be sliding around everywhere, asides from the Racing Points. Stroll leads Perez by four seconds and there's a seven second gap between the Mexican and Vettel.

15 Nov

Hamilton goes wide and is passed by Vettel and the Red Bulls!

15 Nov

Verstappen is in P5 behind Vettel who got away excellently.

15 Nov

Bottas spins while Hamilton is up to P3!

15 Nov

And we're off! Stroll gets away well as does Perez but Verstappen bogs down and drops back!

15 Nov

Every driver is starting on full wets asides from the Williams pair. The formation lap is underway.

15 Nov

It looks like the race won't be starting behind the Safety Car...

15 Nov

With the track drying ever so slightly, it looks like most will start on inters rather than full wets. Five minutes until lights out and I've no idea what to expect.

15 Nov

Add another penalty to the books. Gasly will now start from the back of the grid after his team breached Parc Ferme rules overnight.

15 Nov

It's stopped raining, but the track is wet, and the forecast and clouds in the sky suggest it won't stay dry for long...

15 Nov

As you're probably aware, Hamilton can win title number seven today. There are many permuations, but to put it simply, all he has is to do is make sure he doesn't score eight points less than Bottas. If he does that, the World Championship is his.

15 Nov

Latifi will also have to start from the pits as he's changing the setup on his car. Not the best start to the day for Williams...

15 Nov

It's hard to expalin just how treachourous the track at Istanbul Park is this weekend, but Giovinazzi and Russell have done an excellent job of showing it. Both have crashed on the way to the grid. The Italian got stuck in the gravel but has escaped and m

15 Nov

With penalties for Lando Norris, Carlos Sainz and George Russell applied, this is the full starting grid for the Turkish Grand Prix: P1 Stroll, P2 Verstappen, P3 Perez, P4 Albon, P5 Ricciardo, P6 Hamilton, P7 Ocon, P8 Raikkonen, P9 Bottas, P10 Giovinazzi

15 Nov

He'll be disappointed to be starting so far back, but he still has an excellent chance of taking the title today, and that's becuase the only man that can stop him, Valtteri Bottas, starts even lower, in P9. Esteban Ocon and Kimi Raikkonen seperate the tw

15 Nov

'Where is Hamilton?' I hear you ask. Well, by his standards, low down. He struggled to switch on his tyres during qualifying and therefore couldn't do better than P6, just behind the Renault of Daniel Ricciardo.

15 Nov

Perez himself starts in P3, and will be keen to make amends after being beaten by his team-mate yesterday. Just behind him is the Red Bull of Alex Albon.

15 Nov

Starting just behind the Canadian is Max Verstappen, and he's not happy about it. He was the fastest man all weekend, topping every session, and took P1 early on in Q3. He was then set to improve on his time but, seeing how quickly Sergio Perez had gone

15 Nov

Lance Stroll starts on pole. No, really. The Canadian has always impressed in wet conditons, and did so more than ever yesterday, putting in the best lap of anyone to secure his and Racing Point's (in it's current form) first ever pole position.

15 Nov

So, let's take a look at said mixed up grid...

15 Nov

This, combined with a bit of rain, made qualifying yesterday a completely chaotic affair that gave us the most mixed up grid in quite some time. Oh, and did we mention that it's just started raining in Istanbul?

15 Nov

Why? Where to start... For one, the track has had absolutely zero grip all weekend, rain or no rain. The low temperatures and brand new tarmac have made it akin to driving on ice. Therefore, keeping a car on track is a genuine challenge.

15 Nov

Hello and welcome to live coverage of the Turkish Grand Prix! We say this a lot, but this race is set to be a cracker, and we're more sure of that than ever before.

14 Nov 2020

Just announced that all lap times set under yellow flags in Q1 are to be investigated after the session. Latifi had gone off into the gravel.

14 Nov 2020

Latifi, Grosjean, Russell, Kvyat and Magnussen are the drivers to drop out after a mammoth Q1 session.

14 Nov 2020

It's Verstappen on top at the end of Q1, Hamilton just survives in P14. The Briton's time was deleted due to track limits but fortunately, he hadn't gone faster anyway.

14 Nov 2020

The track is improving! Verstappen goes P1 with a 1:57.4

14 Nov 2020

Verstappen in P15 and Leclerc in P16 are right on the bubble of elimination as the session starts again.

14 Nov 2020

Another red flag due to Grosjean's beached Haas. Three minutes left in the session.

14 Nov 2020

Grosjean is out! He has beached it in the gravel at Turn 1 and finds himself P17 and in the elimination zone.

14 Nov 2020

And already Raikkonen has gone flying across the grass! He gets away it though and continues.

14 Nov 2020

Away we go, the green light shines to restart Q1. All the drivers are on full wets.

14 Nov 2020

Get in! Session to restart in 4 minutes.

14 Nov 2020

The Safety Car has gone out again.

14 Nov 2020

Still no update on when or if the session will restart.

14 Nov 2020

We have a track sweeper out there. Send the F1 cars out, no better hoover of water than 20 of them.

14 Nov 2020

The Safety Car seems to be faring okay out there, Bernd Mayländer should give the thumbs up soon.

14 Nov 2020

The rain has now stopped, hopefully, the 10-minute warning for the session restarting will arrive soon.

14 Nov 2020

There is blue sky coming over the horizon, so we should be able to get going again soon.

14 Nov 2020

The rain splodge on the radar isn't as big as the one in FP3, but it certainly is as intense.

14 Nov 2020

That now means the clock stops at 6:56s, unlike practice where it continues.

14 Nov 2020

Session red flagged!

14 Nov 2020

As it stands Leclerc, Grosjean, Gasly, Russell and Latifi are in the elimination zone.

14 Nov 2020

"It's raining crazy now" says Hamilton.

14 Nov 2020

The rain is falling hard now, qualifying is definitely under threat. Nightfall is only a few hours away.

14 Nov 2020

Basically, the track is undriveable with this combo of rain and new tarmac.

14 Nov 2020

A 2:07 from Bottas takes him P1, we're being serious.

14 Nov 2020

The dark clouds are closing in on Istanbul Park again.

14 Nov 2020

Verstappen tries to stay out on the intermediates for his first flying lap but he's going off all over the place.

14 Nov 2020

Already Verstappen spins on the inters, he corrects the RB16 and continues.

14 Nov 2020

A nice mix of intermediate and full wet tyres as the drivers creep out of the pit lane.

14 Nov 2020

And indeed the rain does appear to be falling again, but on goes the green light, Q1 begins!

14 Nov 2020

11c air temperature, 13c track temperature. These conditions are far from ideal for these Pirelli tyres. 90% chance of rain, the same as in FP3, and it certainly arrived for that session.

14 Nov 2020

Just a few minutes to go now until Q1 gets underway, in this session the five slowest drivers will be eliminated, and those five literally could be any of the 20 set to take part. The threat of rain remains.

14 Nov 2020

Mercedes are going into Q1 on the back foot. The dominant Silver Arrows have only had a car in the top three once, that being Valtteri Bottas in FP2. Lewis Hamilton failed to set a time in that wet FP3.

14 Nov 2020

Even the Safety Car is having a bit of trouble out there. The conditions are treacherous but there should be no delay to qualifying.

14 Nov 2020

We have a dog that has decided to run the track before Q1, they may want to lure it off the circuit with the session set to start in 12 minutes.

14 Nov 2020

Ferrari was also looking strong throughout practice. Charles Leclerc is yet to finish outside the top three in a session this weekend!

14 Nov 2020

Max Verstappen heads into Q1 with all the momentum having topped all three practice sessions.

14 Nov 2020

We have no idea what to expect in this session. The new tarmac was so slippery on Friday that the drivers could barely put the throttle down, while heavy rain descended on FP3. The rain has eased off considerably but it's still very damp out there.

14 Nov 2020

Hello and welcome back to Istanbul Park! Qualifying for the Turkish Grand Prix is just 30 minutes away. All times are local.

14 Nov 2020

Norris, Vettel, Sainz, Leclerc and Gasly miss out on the shootout for pole. A big well done to Alfa Romeo who have two drivers in Q3! Giovinazzi finishes Q2 all the way up in P5, Raikkonen P8.

14 Nov 2020

Verstappen leads another Red Bull 1-2. Hamilton the closest challenger in P3.

14 Nov 2020

Sainz is out, he only improves to P11.

14 Nov 2020

Sainz and Perez will be called to the stewards after the session for an impeding incident.

14 Nov 2020

Verstappen is now 3.5s clear of Bottas in P2! This is a masterclass so far.

14 Nov 2020

Albon makes it a Red Bull 1-2 again. As it stands Sainz, Gasly, Norris, Leclerc and Vettel are the drivers in danger of elimination.

14 Nov 2020

Verstappen back on top as he sets a 1:53.4. Only Perez gets within a second of that.

14 Nov 2020

Make that Albon in P1 who sets a 1:56.721, though he is quickly knocked off by Stroll on a 1:55.730.

14 Nov 2020

Verstappen, Raikkonen, Perez, Stroll and Bottas are the top five after the first runs. Hamilton usually the king of these conditions is struggling.

14 Nov 2020

Norris goes P1 but has time deleted for going wide at Turn 6.

14 Nov 2020

Everyone has gone out on the full wets except for the McLarens. Good luck to Sainz and Norris.

14 Nov 2020

It's Q2 time! Yellow flags still out as the marshals continue to remove Latifi's Williams.

14 Nov 2020

Talk about a high bar for the race to aim at, but what a Turkish Grand Prix we have in store. Make sure to join us tomorrow!

14 Nov 2020

Wow, qualifying doesn't get any better than that, thank you Turkey! If it rains tomorrow then we are set for a fascinating battle between Racing Point and Red Bull. Mercedes were nowhere near. What an opportunity this is for Racing Point in their battle f

14 Nov 2020

Perez will start from P3, sharing the second row with Albon. Ricciardo, Hamilton, Ocon, Raikkonen, Bottas and Giovinazzi complete the top 10.

14 Nov 2020

Verstappen can't do it! Lance Stroll takes pole for the Turkish Grand Prix. The first pole position of his career!

14 Nov 2020

Stroll provisional pole!

14 Nov 2020

Verstappen splits Racing Point but it isn't P1, he will get one more chance!

14 Nov 2020

Stroll improves to P2, a Racing Point front-row lockout as it stands.

14 Nov 2020

Faster still for Perez, a lot faster! It's a 1:49.321.

14 Nov 2020

Albon moves up to P3.

14 Nov 2020

Verstappen is stuck in traffic, he won't beat Perez on this lap. Two minutes to go.

14 Nov 2020

Mercedes double-stack to put Bottas and Hamilton on the intermediates as well.

14 Nov 2020

Red Bull call Max off the lap he was on, even though he went purple in the first two sectors, to put him on to the green-striped intermediates as well.

14 Nov 2020

Hang on! Perez goes P1 on the inters. What a lap! A 1:52.037.

14 Nov 2020

A 1:52.3 for Verstappen. Give him pole now. Albon is four seconds slower but goes P3 for now. Bottas in P2 is also four seconds slower.

14 Nov 2020

Ocon is feeling brave and will start this session on the intermediate tyres, as will Perez.

14 Nov 2020

Q3 time! Can anyone stop the dominant Verstappen as he looks to take pole for the Turkish Grand Prix, a weekend he has dominated so far?

13 Nov

FP2 will begin at 15:00 local time, and coverage here will start 30 minutes beforehand. Join us then.

13 Nov

Well, that wasn't a particularly useful session for anyone. Teams and drivers alike will be hoping temperatures are more optimal this afternoon, especially considering it's set to be even colder for the final practice session tomorrow morning.

13 Nov

The full FP1 order: P1 Verstappen, P2 Albon, P3 Leclerc, P4 Gasly, P5 Vettel, P6 Kvyat, P7 Norris, P8 Giovinazzi, P9 Bottas, P10 Ocon, P11 Latifi, P12 Perez, P13 Stroll, P14 Grosjean, P15 Hamilton, P16 Raikkonen, P17 Magnussen, P18 Ricciardo, P19 Sainz,

13 Nov

The top three and Vettel did their fastest laps on hards, the rest of the top 10 did so on mediums.

13 Nov

Kvyat took P6, just ahead of Norris and Giovinazzi, while Bottas and Ocon completed the top 10.

13 Nov

Leclerc was third quickest, and Gasly seperated him and the other Ferrari of Vettel.

13 Nov

Red Bull end it in P1 and P2, but in all honesty, none of the times set this morning were particularly relevant or reflective given the track temperature.

13 Nov

And with that, FP1 is over. A strange session, indeed.

13 Nov

Verstappen goes top right at the end with a 1:35.077, pulling off a nice overtake on Giovinazzi in the process.

13 Nov

No offence to Mercedes, but seeing them down in P9 and P14 is a welcome chance. Don't expect them to stay there, though.

13 Nov

Albon goes purple with a 1:35.318, cruelly taking away a rare chance of a 1-2 finish for Ferrari.

13 Nov

Hamilton finally sets a time and it's enough for P9.

13 Nov

Gasly goes P3, just over a second down on the Ferraris.

13 Nov

Vettel and Leclerc are currently the two quickest on track and are now P2 and P1 respectively, sitting in the 1:35s.

13 Nov

Leclerc now takes P2. He and Vettel are both on hards.

13 Nov

Sainz has pulled over at the side of the track, reporting an issue with power steering. We have a VSC.

13 Nov

Vettel does! He splits the two.

13 Nov

Verstappen goes four tenths quicker. Anybody else want to get in on the fun?

13 Nov

We're into the 1:30s! Courtesy of Bottas, who now does a 1:38.915.

13 Nov

Hamilton is the only driver yet to set a time today.

13 Nov

The Finn now does a 1:40.114.

13 Nov

Bottas does a 1:40.806. The track is, ever so slightly and ever so slowly, warming up.

13 Nov

Verstappen goes top with a blistering 1:41.741.

13 Nov

Gasly spins, and the only surprising thing about it is that it's the first of the session.

13 Nov

To make betters worse - or perhaps better in terms of entertainment - tomorrow and Sunday are meant to be cloudier and colder than today...

13 Nov

For a bit of perspective, we're expecting lap times this weekend to drop below 1:20. At the moment, Bottas is still fastest with a 1:43.

13 Nov

Oh dear. Russell has had a new engine fitted and has therefore exceeded his allowance. Grid penalty for him.

13 Nov

We're already 1/3 of the way through this session, and we've had next to no significant running. Come on boys, head out and warm that track up.

13 Nov

The Finn manages to stay within track limits for an entire lap to give us our first time of the day, a 1:44.979. Valiant effort.

13 Nov

The track is current 20'C below target temperature, and it shows.

13 Nov

Bottas is the first man back out and he's all over the place, going wide at every turn.

13 Nov

We're back underway.

13 Nov

We knew it would be a tricky track, but we thought we'd get a bit longer than seven minutes before the first stoppage...

13 Nov

The latter's incident has left the bollard lying on the edge of the track and has therefore caused a Red Flag.

13 Nov

Sainz goes wide at Turn 1 and Leclerc takes out a bollard at the final corner in this, the inaugural episode of "Formula 1 on ice."

13 Nov

Norris agrees, saying he can't even go flat out on the straight. No matter, once all the cars are out, the track should warm up pretty quickly.

13 Nov

"It's like driving one ice," says Verstappen.

13 Nov

Birthday boy Lando Norris is one of the first out, and the first to go off.

13 Nov

Right then, let's get to it. FP1 is underway.

13 Nov

The big talking point heading into this weekend is that Lewis Hamilton can secure his seventh World Championship here. How? Well, there are many permutations, but in the simplest terms possible, all he has to do is not score eight points less than team-

13 Nov

They'll take some consolation in the fact that the weather forecast seems to have cleared up for them. As recently as yesterday, rain was said to be on the horizon, but that now doesn't look to be the case. Shame.

13 Nov

Even with plenty of practice, taking on Istanbul Park is still a daunting challenge for the the drivers. It's considered one of the best circuits built this century, but also one of the toughest thanks to the high-speed corners and elevation changes. The

13 Nov

Given that F1 hasn't been here in nine years, it will be a new track for most of the grid. Given this, they'll be glad we're going back to a full three day, three-practice-sessions format. First up is FP1 in just under half an hour.

13 Nov

Good morning and welcome back to the Istanbul Park for Formula 1's first visit to Turkey in nine years. Turn 8 here we come!

13 Nov 2020

It will begin at noon local time, so join us here half an hour beforehand and stick with us all the way through to qualifying. What better way to spend a Saturday?

13 Nov 2020

Next up is, of course, FP3, and considering it looks as if things will be colder then than they were today, we could see quite a few more spins and drifts...

13 Nov 2020

The full FP2 result: P1 Verstappen, P2 Leclerc, P3 Bottas, P4 Hamilton, P5 Albon, P6 Kvyat, P7 Gasly, P8 Vettel, P9 Stroll, P10 Norris, P11 Perez, P12 Ocon, P13 Giovinazzi, P14 Sainz, P15 Ricciardo, P16 Raikkonen, P17 Russell, P18 Grosjean, P19 Magnussen

13 Nov 2020

It was certainly a better day for Albon, who finished FP1 in P2. However, given his early pace in FP2, he'll be disappointed to end it so far behind his team-mate.

13 Nov 2020

Bottas ensured that Mercedes didn't go an entire day without finishing in the top three - God knows when that last happened - and Hamilton was close behind him.

13 Nov 2020

Verstappen topped FP2 as he did FP1, and is looking strong. So to is Leclerc, who finished P3 this morning and went one better this afternoon.

13 Nov 2020

Because of that, we didn't see times anywhere near where we expected them to be. Nevertheless, teams still gathered some useful date and drivers got some decent running in the second session in particular.

13 Nov 2020

Well, that was a strange day to say the least. I don't think anybody could have predicted just how little grip there was going to be on the track.

13 Nov 2020

That's that for Friday running.

13 Nov 2020

Five minutes to go.

13 Nov 2020

The track has undoubtedly improved this afternoon, but we're still some way off 2011 times, which - considering the pace difference between the cars from those eras - is quite something.

13 Nov 2020

Raikkonen now loses the rear. Not too much else happening on track, most are on longer runs on the soft compound.

13 Nov 2020

Yellow flags as Russell and Latifi both go spinning.

13 Nov 2020

Bottas immediately leap frogs his team-mate.

13 Nov 2020

The Brit now takes P3. And there we were thinking we'd go a whole day without a Mercedes finishing in the top three...

13 Nov 2020

Leclerc goes two tenths quicker to take P1. Meanwhile, Hamilton moves up to P4.

13 Nov 2020

Verstappen does a 1:28.984.

13 Nov 2020

As the track evolves, the soft tyre is starting to get quicker and more durable. That being said, Vettel just flat-stoppted his, sending chunks of rubber flying.

13 Nov 2020

Leclerc now goes within 0.017 of P1. Tight.

13 Nov 2020

Verstappen goes 0.007 slower than his team-mate.

13 Nov 2020

The Thai driver improves by three tenths. It's been the best day in a long time for him, although given track conditions, take that with a pinch of salt.

13 Nov 2020

On his softs, Albon goes top with a 1:29.627.

13 Nov 2020

The Ferrari man still isn't happy with the softs though, feeling that they're pretty much worn out already. Sainz is saying similar things.

13 Nov 2020

Leclerc is the first man to really switch the compound on and has gone top by just over a tenth.

13 Nov 2020

A number of drivers have put on the soft tyre, but so far it's slower than the mediums, with few going green.

13 Nov 2020

Hamilton moves up to P2, doing a purple final sector.

13 Nov 2020

The times continue to drop, but we're still some way from the laps expected this weekend. Albon now leading with a 1:30.872.

13 Nov 2020

Albon does a 1:31.916.

13 Nov 2020

All of those on quick laps are running mediums. The hard doesn't seem to be particularly popular here.

13 Nov 2020

Verstappen improves with a 1:32.836, and he was held up by Gasly. Are we going to get into the 1:20s?!

13 Nov 2020

Leclerc and Verstappen now go P1 and P2. We now have faster lap times than any of those in FP1.

13 Nov 2020

Hamilton quickly ruins my point by splitting the two in P2.

13 Nov 2020

Raikkonen goes purple by just over a tenth before Bottas retakes top spot. The Finns experience of driving on ice is paying off.

13 Nov 2020

Have Pirelli mixed up the wet and dry tyres? I've never seen so little grip on a dry track in F1. The Drivers have to be so tentative.

13 Nov 2020

Bottas improves to do a 1:35.107 as Raikkonen goes two second down.

13 Nov 2020

Drivers weren't able to take the famous Turn 8 flat out this morning, and they're still lifting through it now. When they can go full throttle there, it'll be a glorious sight.

13 Nov 2020

The track is far from optimal, but Bottas has already gone quicker than he did in FP1 with a 1:38.443. Progress...

13 Nov 2020

Right then. FP2 is underway.

13 Nov 2020

Another reason for the lack of the grip on the track is the fact that it was recently resurfaced. Given this, Pirelli has concerns about what would happen if it rained. Fortunately for them, the forecast has cleared up.

13 Nov 2020

While the track will almost certainly be slippery at the start of the session, it should warm up quicker in the warmer afternoon sun. If not, tomorrow will be interesting indeed...

13 Nov 2020

Therefore, this afternoon's session is crucial. It will most likely be the best chance to gather data and experience prior to qualifying.

13 Nov 2020

That's far from ideal preparation at a track that teams haven't raced on in nine years and many of the drivers have never raced on at all. To make matters worse, things are set to be even colder for FP3 tomorrow.

13 Nov 2020

As a result, the fastest time this morning, courtesy of Max Verstappen, was 10 seconds slower than the pole-position lap last time F1 raced here in 2011, and a second slower than the GP2 pole that year.

13 Nov 2020

It's fair to say FP1 was a strange session. With track temperatures extremely low, grip was near impossible to find, with many drivers saying they felt like they were driving on ice.

13 Nov 2020

Hello and welcome to live coverage of the second practice session of the Turkish Grand Prix! All times are local to Istanbul Park.

14 Nov

Join us in just under two hours' time for what we hope will be the start of qualifying.

14 Nov

Well, four hours of practice and the drivers are yet to get any real feel of Istanbul Park. Hopefully, the forecasted break in this rain arrives, because as it is qualifying would almost certainly be delayed.

14 Nov

Ricciardo, Sainz, Giovinazzi, Gasly, Grosjean, Raikkonen, Kvyat, Russell, Latifi and Hamilton complete the order.

14 Nov

Ocon is P4, followed by Norris, Vettel, Perez, Bottas, Magnussen and Stroll.

14 Nov

The chequered flag falls on FP3. Verstappen tops the session ahead of Leclerc and Albon, making it a clean sweep of practice for the Dutchman.

14 Nov

The rain looks to be falling heavy again. "There's just no grip out here, shocking," says Hamilton.

14 Nov

Hamilton and Bottas have gone back out with three minutes to go.

14 Nov

Giovinazzi spins again. Really don't see what the value was of sending the Italian out.

14 Nov

Giovinazzi goes off into the gravel on the approach to Turn 3 but he gets his C39 going again. No idea how he didn't end his session right there. At least the rain will quickly clean off the mud.

14 Nov

We have cars on-track. Kvyat and both Alfa Romeos have ventured back out to assess the conditions.

14 Nov

Lando just hit the cover over McLaren's pit wall and got a face full of water. Oops!

14 Nov

All quiet out there, it's the perfect weather for ducks but seemingly not for Formula 1 cars.

14 Nov

Ricciardo is P11, Sainz P12, Giovinazzi P13, Gasly P14, Grosjean P15, Raikkonen P16 and Kvyat P17. Russell, Latifi and Hamilton haven't set a time.

14 Nov

So Verstappen, Leclerc and Albon are the top three, followed by Ocon, Norris, Vettel, Perez, Bottas, Magnussen and Stroll. This probably will remain the top 10 for the rest of the session.

14 Nov

Okay, now it's raining, very very heavy! The covers are going on at the Mercedes pit wall.

14 Nov

Sainz stayed out but just went for a big slide over the grass. Very lucky to keep it out of the wall.

14 Nov

As for the current leaderboard it's Verstappen on top again, followed by Leclerc and Albon.

14 Nov

The rain is coming down quite heavy again as the drivers head back to their garages. 30 minutes remain in the session.

14 Nov

"It's very slippery for sure but if we have this in the race we need to train and you know that I want practice in these conditions". Well said Charles Leclerc.

14 Nov

Vettel is going for a lap on the full wets. His last time was deleted for exceeding track limits at Turn 1 believe it or not. Seb gives himself a slap on the helmet for that one.

14 Nov

And already Hamilton returns to the garage.

14 Nov

Kvyat goes for a spin while Hamilton now ventures out on to the track for the first time in this session. He is on the blue-striped wet tyres.

14 Nov

And with that Verstappen peels off into the pits.

14 Nov

"It's getting a bit tricky now, quite slippery, more rain everywhere," says Verstappen over team radio.

14 Nov

Carlos Sainz pits to fit the full wet tyres, the rain is getting heavier.

14 Nov

Leclerc looks to go up the inside of Esteban Ocon but instead sends the Frenchman into a spin. No damage for either driver, fortunately.

14 Nov

A 1:50.358 from Red Bull's Alex Albon is quicky bettered by Verstappen and Leclerc. It's Verstappen on top with a 1:48.4 early on.

14 Nov

The Mercedes in particular seems to be struggling. Any application of the throttle and Valtteri Bottas' wheels spin up. Good job he loves a spot of rallying.

14 Nov

Around goes Sergio Perez as he tries to apply the throttle. He quickly gets his RP20 pointing in the right direction again and carries on.

14 Nov

The onboard with Leclerc is frightening enough, he nearly loses it after a big snap despite literally crawling around the circuit.

14 Nov

Weather reports say that the heavy rain is going to miss the circuit, but this drizzle is set in for the next 90 minutes.

14 Nov

It is very very slippery. Grosjean is struggling just to slow the VF-20 down for the corners.

14 Nov

We have a green light. Out on to the track goes Grosjean in the Haas on the intermediate tyres. Leclerc follows.

14 Nov

15c track temperature and 12c air temperature greets the drivers.

14 Nov

90% risk of rain for this session, we've heard that one before. Just two minutes to go now until we get the green light.

14 Nov

AlphaTauri will also be looking forward to the rest of the weekend, they look a solid contender for the top 10. P6 in FP2 was quite the achievement for Daniil Kvyat considering he hadn't raced at this track before or completed any simulator work.

14 Nov

Ferrari was also looking strong on Friday as Charles Leclerc made it into the top three in the morning session before finishing runner-up to Verstappen in the afternoon.

14 Nov

Lewis Hamilton called the surface "sh*t with a capital s" on Friday as he finished the afternoon session down in P4. The Mercedes driver has one more session before qualifying to get it right on a weekend where he is favourite to secure a seventh World Ch

14 Nov

On Friday Max Verstappen was king of the drifters, topping FP1 and FP2. But the Red Bull man said he is still "miles off" his true performance because of the surface.

14 Nov

Organisers had been using road cars overnight to try and rubber in the circuit, pretty sure we heard Romain Grosjean mention that idea first. But the rain has washed that away so we are back to square one, or maybe minus one since the track is now wet too

14 Nov

The drivers got plenty of running done yesterday, but little of it was meaningful thanks to the ice-like new tarmac, but at least Lando Norris enjoyed his "drift school" birthday present. Plans to wash the track again were abandoned overnight, but it has
