Red Bull's Max Verstappen clocked the fastest lap in both of Friday's practices ahead of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix Sunday, but ended the second session in the wall after spinning off. Verstappen topped first practice with a time of 1:44.410, with teammate Daniel Ricciardo finishing four-tenths behind him to ensure a Red Bull one-two, before the Dutch teenager capped an excellent day with an improved time of 1:43.362 in the second session.The Finn, who hit a Formula One record top speed of 373kmh last year, went into a spin at Turn 10 during the first practice, but recovered to finish second, a tenth behind Verstappen, in the evening's session.Hamilton recorded the best time in each of the three practice sessions in Baku last year, before a crash in qualifying ruined his chances of success.He looked uncomfortable Friday, had a near miss with Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen on Turn 1 and finished the second practice in tenth, 1.163 behind Verstappen.
