Bottas Leads Hamilton in Final Practice for Hungarian GP

BUDAPEST, Hungary (AP) — Valtteri Bottas led from his Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton in final practice for the Hungarian Grand Prix ahead of qualifying later on Saturday.

Championship leader Bottas was .042 seconds ahead of the Formula One champion in overcast conditions on the Hungaroring track.

Sergio Pérez was third fastest for Racing Point, which uses Mercedes engines, while Ferrari's Charles Leclerc was fourth ahead of Perez's teammate Lance Stroll.

Red Bull's Max Verstappen was sixth best and spun midway through the gloomy session after losing the rear of the car coming out of Turn 12.

Bottas won the season-opening Austrian GP and six-time F1 champion Hamilton clinched the Styrian GP the following week in Austria after a brilliant pole position in teeming rain.
