Red Bull remained the fastest car for the second practice session in Baku, although Valtteri Bottas was able to split the teammates this time, with Ricciardo dropping back to third. Pérez brushed up against the turn eight barrier once more but was relieved to escape unscathed this time. It was not the same story for Jolyon Palmer who did end up in the tyre barriers at that notorious corner.

Elsewhere, Fernando Alonso brought his McLaren to a halt once again reporting an engine problem, whilst there were near misses for Ocon, Kvyat and Massa who all got to the end of the session despite brushing the barriers on occasion.
