Clearly, Mugello has previously staged F1 test events, but the Italian circuit was a welcome addition for drivers to the 2020 calendar as part the pandemic adjustment
And Friday offered the 2020 grid their initial chance to sample the circuit through first practice, with Bottas leading Mercedes to the head of the timesheets.
After sitting fourth following the opening runs on the medium-compound tyre in FP1, Bottas was able to go fastest of all after switching to the softs.
It was enough to give Bottas top spot by 0.048s from Verstappen, who had been the early pace-setter on hards for Red Bull.
Leclerc was able to make a strong start to Ferrari’s 1,000th grand prix weekend as he finished third overall, lapping just three-tenths slower than Bottas.
