The first practice session of the Portuguese GP is complete, with Valtteri Bottas on top of the time sheets, followed by Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez.

Charles Leclerc in P4, followed by Lewis Hamilton in P5 and Pierre Gasly in P6. Another really strong FP1 appearance for George Russell, who placed his Williams in P7. Lando Norris in P8, followed by his former team mate Carlos Sainz in P9, and Esteban Ocon in P10, completing the Top 10.

Earlier this week, Callum Ilott joined Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN as additional Reserve Driver for the 2021 season.
