Max Verstappen is the quickest driver of second free practice session of the Canadian Grand Prix.

After a two-hour break, racing action at Montreal’s Circuit Gilles Villeneuve continued.

Both Mercedes drivers were not in their race cars at the start as the mechanics seemed to be making changes.

Sebastian Vettel almost collided with Kevin Magnussen at the pit lane while leaving the garage. The incident would be investigated by the stewards after the session.

Bouncing was still making its impact. Carlos Sainz said via team radio that the situation worsened compared to FP1.

Virtual Safety Car was briefly deployed in order to remove a can that was on the track surface.

Meanwhile, Valtteri Bottas faced problems on a Friday again. The Alfa Romeo driver suffered a issue related to anti-stall, which did not allow him to set a lap time.

After working on one-lap performance, drivers switched to race simulations in the final third of the session.

Max Verstappen set the fastest lap of FP2. Charles Leclerc was second, while Sainz completed the top 3.
