Hamilton hits back by topping second practice in Malaysia

CBFmetgWQAAlxLWLewis Hamilton overcame a delayed start and telemetry issues to top the timesheets in the second practice session in Kuala Lumpur on Friday afternoon.

The reigning world champion had to wait until the 38th minute of the session before taking to the track, as Mercedes dealt with the engine issue that curtailed his running in FP1. However once he did get going, Hamilton worked his way down to 1m 39.790s on the medium tyre to eclipse Kimi Raikkonen’s best effort for Ferrari.

Nico Rosberg was third quickest in the second Mercedes, with Red Bull’s Daniil Kvyat and Williams’ Valtteri Bottas completing the top five.
