Lewis Hamilton continued his strong form as he clocked the quickest time during the second practice session for the Canadian Grand Prix.

The Mercedes driver moved to the front of the pack with a time of 1:14.212, set on the Ultra Soft tyres, ensuring he completed a clean sweep of Friday’s sessions.

Hamilton finished the session 0.257s clear of Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, with Nico Rosberg third for Mercedes, half a second behind his team-mate.

Red Bull finished fourth and fifth with Max Verstappen 0.012s in front of team-mate Daniel Ricciardo, albeit with the pair almost a second down on Hamilton.

Valtteri Bottas and Jenson Button posted identical times for Williams and McLaren respectively, 1.001s behind Hamilton.

Button spent the first stages of running in the pits after an engine change following problems in the first session.

Kimi Räikkönen was a low-key eighth for Ferrari, as Nico Hülkenberg and Carlos Sainz Jr. rounded out the top 10.

Fernando Alonso collected 11th spot for McLaren, ahead of Sergio Pérez, Felipe Massa and Daniil Kvyat as just four-tenths of a second separated Verstappen in fourth and Kvyat in 14th.

Romain Grosjean was 15th for Haas, half a second adrift of Kvyat, with Renault’s Kevin Magnussen in 16th position.

Sauber drivers Felipe Nasr and Marcus Ericsson were 17th and 19th, sandwiching Haas’ Esteban Gutiérrez.

Joylon Palmer finished 20th for Renault, with Pascal Wehrlein and Rio Haryanto completing the field for Manor, the Indonesian 3.2 seconds behind pace setter Hamilton.
