“German GP: Hamilton takes FP2 lead”

July 18, 2014

Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton strode to the top of times in today’s second free practice at the Hockenheimring.

The Briton set a quickest alp of 1:18.341; just 0.024s quicker than teammate and championship leader Nico Rosberg.

Hamilton set his quickest toward the end of his qualifying simulation. The Englishman ran fastest just after Rosberg suffered a brief off on his opening flyer on the super-soft Pirelli’s.
Rosberg did improve the next time by, but fell short of his archrival.

Daniel Ricciardo (Red Bull) was 3rd quickest for Red Bull, finishing a tenth down of the silver pair out front.

Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen was next on the timesheets, with Kevin Magnussen’s following through in 5th for McLaren.

The session was cut short for Caterham’s Kamui Kobayashi whose engine gave up at the halfway point, while Marcus Ericsson also suffered mechanical difficulties in the second green machine.
