Max Verstappen is ahead of Charles Leclerc and Lando Norris in the rain-affected second practice session of the Belgian GP.

After a two-hour break, the Formula 1 action at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps continued with FP2.

Drivers began the session on slicks. However, Carlos Sainz reported the track was more damp than expected.

One of Sainz’s flying laps was affected by Sebastian Vettel who was in front of him on a long run.

Lando Norris had to go off the track to avoid Lance Stroll who was slow at the Bus Stop chicane. The McLaren driver went to the pits moments later.

Pierre Gasly went into the gravel at turn 8. The Frenchman rejoined the track shortly after.

Sergio Perez’s session was affected by a hydraulic leak. The Mexican spent a considerable amount of time in the garage before coming back to the track.

The rain appeared at the race track again in the final third of the session. Nevertheless, drivers kept running on slicks.

Mick Schumacher lost the rear of his car and went into the gravel. He did not damage the car and returned to the track. Several more drivers went off the track at Les Combes.

Max Verstappen topped the standings of FP2. The Dutchman was followed by Charles Leclerc and Lando Norris.
