Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton returned to the top of the timesheets in second Spanish Grand Prix practice Friday, with the charging Red Bulls of Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen hot on his heels.Vettel, who will be chasing his fourth successive pole position Saturday, was fourth and Hamilton's team mate Valtteri Bottas fifth.Bottas set the day's overall fastest lap in the opening session with a time of 1:18.148 seconds on the soft tires, a remarkable 0.849 faster than Hamilton who won from pole in Spain last year.Hamilton has not felt fully comfortable with his car and recognized that his championship advantage owes a lot to luck.The virtual safety car was deployed in the morning when Ricciardo's car ran across the gravel and into the barriers.Kubica's car had a newer floor than Stroll's, however.
