F1: Lewis Hamilton dominates in Montreal (+photos)

By ,

Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso set the fastest time in Friday’s first free practice session but it was business as usual in FP2 when Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton went even quicker.

This morning, under grey skies, Alonso set the pace on 1m17.238 to head up the timesheet by just 0.016 seconds from Hamilton.

Ferrari has brought several updates here in Montreal. The F14 T features numerous changes under the bodywork in addition to new, low downforce front and rear wings.

Hamilton ranked second ahead if his teammate, Nico Rosberg.

On this high-power circuit, the Red Bulls could only rank 4th with Sebastian Vettel and 6th with Daniel Ricciardo.

After the lunch break, the battle resumed. Hamilton drove like a man possessed and set the best time at 1m16.118.
