Hamilton dominates Silverstone practice

Lewis Hamilton proved too strong for his rivals as he posted the fastest time of the afternoon in the second free practice session for Sunday's British Grand Prix.

Hamilton clocked a 1:31.660 lap to finish the session at the top of the timesheets, but he was the only Mercedes driver to set a time as his team-mate Nico Rosberg failed to take to the track after a water leak was detected on his car.

Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo was 0.391seconds behind Hamilton with his team-mate Max Verstappen third.

Sebastian Vettel was fourth fastest for Ferrari, one-tenth clear of his team-mate Kimi Raikkonen, while Fernando Alonso enjoyed a good afternoon as he brought his McLaren home in sixth.

Williams' Valtteri Bottas was seventh ahead of Romain Grosjean in the Haas and Jenson Button in the second McLaren. Felipe Massa completed the top ten.
