Rosberg fastest once again in second practice for British GP as Hamilton finishes P4

CI_pHmsUEAAMLfEMercedes’ Nico Rosberg once again topped the timesheets during the second free practice session for the British Grand Prix on Friday, beating Ferrari drivers Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel into second and third place respectively.

After suffering a hydraulic leak during FP1 on Friday, Rosberg bounced back in the afternoon to record a fastest lap time of 1:34.155, giving himself an advantage of almost four-tenths of a second over Raikkonen in second place.

Championship leader Lewis Hamilton was unable to match the time of his Mercedes teammate during the second practice session, finishing the day in fourth place with almost half a second to find and less than impressed with the setup of the Mercedes car.

Red Bull found its feet to get both Daniil Kvyat and Daniel Ricciardo into the top six during FP2, whilst Max Verstappen finished seventh for Red Bull. Nico Hulkenberg, Carlos Sainz Jr and Felipe Massa rounded out the top ten.
