BAKU: Mercedes' Finnish driver Valtteri Bottas steers his car during the first practice session ahead of the Formula One Azerbaijan Grand Prix . In-form Daniel Ricciardo edged ahead of Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen to top the times in Friday's second free practice session. The Australian clocked a best lap time of one minute and 42.795 seconds to outpace the Finn by just 0.069sec with his Red Bull team-mate Max Verstappen third, 0.116sec adrift. Bottas, who was fastest in the morning session, wound up fourth for Mercedes ahead of defending four-time world champion Lewis Hamilton, and two-time champion Fernando Alonso of McLaren. Esteban Ocon of Force India was seventh, ahead of Carlos Sainz of Renault, Kevin Magnussen of Haas and Germany's Nico Hulkenberg in the second Renault. Verstappen's lap came as a welcome final outcome on another turbulent day which had seen him crash into the barriers during the opening practice in the morning. Verstappen has crashed at all three Grands Prix this season and came into this weekend under pressure to regain his composure and some consistency but slid his Red Bull car into the wall after only half an hour.
