Oliver Rowland topped the timesheets in the first FIA Formula 2 Championship free practice session today with a blistering lap under scorching conditions

He led the way for most of the session by less than a tenth from Artem Markelov and Charles Leclerc.
Rowland stopped the clocks at 1:42.221 just nine minutes into the session.

Behind the top three were Antonio Fuoco, Norman Nato, Luca Ghiotto, Nyck De Vries, Johnny Cecotto and Nobuharu Matsushita, who all posted times within a second of the top spot, and will be hoping to find a small margin in the cooler conditions for this evening’s qualifying session.
