George Russell led a Mercedes one-two in first practice at the Dutch Grand Prix on Friday.
Russell recorded a time of 1:12.455, a quarter of a second quicker than his teammate Lewis Hamiltlon.
Hamilton was coming back after a spat with Fernando Alonso at last weekend’s Belgian race, but on Thursday the pair settled their differences as Hamilton gave his former teammate a signed cap by way of apology. Alonso was eighth fastest.

Elsewhere, Red Bull’s second driver Sergio Perez was seventh quickest, Lando Norris was fourth fastest in his McLaren.
