Hamilton stays ahead in second practice

By on

Lewis Hamilton continued as he started the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend by setting the fastest time during second practice. Nico Rosberg once again proved second fastest with Sebastian Vettel now the closest non-Mercedes runner in third.

Conditions proved to be much hotter than in first practice with track temperatures reaching 55°C. Despite the difference, Hamilton set the fastest time on both tyre compounds, going 0.386s faster than Rosberg on the medium and later 0.238 faster than his teammate on the soft tyre.

Just like the morning session, it proved eventful but without major drama. Only Felipe Massa and Kamui Kobayashi spun their cars while some others made smaller off-track excursions.
