Bottas ends Friday on top of the timesheets

Valtteri Bottas was the fastest driver in both sessions on Friday at Silverstone, leading his teammate. In the afternoon session, Kimi Räikkönen was third fastest but he was also one of the many drivers that found himself spinning. Ricciardo and Verstappen both also spun, as did Sainz, Palmer and many more.

Sauber were still struggling for pace, whilst Williams seemed to have a split in their performance, with Massa up in eighth and Stroll down in 15th. But it was a quiet day overall, not a lot in the way of drama, and the rain holding off to leave all running unhindered.
