Rosberg goes fastest again

German dominates at Hockenheim

Nico Rosberg once again bettered team-mate Lewis Hamilton as he went fastest in the second practice session for the German Grand Prix at Hockenheim.

Rosberg, who won his home grand prix the last time it was hosted at the famous track back in 2014, was comfortably faster than the Briton once again as he posted a fastest lap time of 1:15.614secs, a full 0.394secs ahead of the reigning world champion who appeared to be well below his best.

Sebastian Vettel was third for Ferrari, one-fifth of a second behind Hamilton, with Red Bull pair Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo fourth and fifth respectively ahead of Kimi Raikkonen in the other Ferrari.

It was a decent session for Force India as Nico Hulkenburg was seventh fastest 1.167secs off the pace, while Sergio Perez finished ninth just behind McLaren’s Jenson Button who was later taken to hospital as a precaution with an eye irritation after complaining of overheating in the cockpit.

Fernando Alonso, who turned 35 today, was tenth.
