FP2: Ocon leads Perez and Russell in final practice before Sao Paulo Sprint

Esteban Ocon led the way in the second and final practice session of the Sao Paulo Grand Prix, topping the timesheets before today’s F1 Sprint.

Ocon clocked a time of 1m 14.604s to lead Sergio Perez, who was in P2 by 0.184s, with the Mercedes of George Russell going third quickest in the session.
