The second practice session of the year was very different for Mercedes. This sesson they had the 2 fastest drivers and the Mercedes W05 didn’t breakdown. Lewis Hamilton was even faster then Nico Rosberg this time.
Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso was 3rd fastest and even 1,7 sec faster then the first session. Kimi Raikkonen was 7th and even 2 seconds faster then the first session.
A lot of drivers had to work hard to keep their car on the track and where going wide and breaking out. We saw Daniel Ricciardo who went wide a lot with his Red Bull RB10. Nico Hulkenberg who parked in the gravel and Romain Grosjean who hit the barriers with his Lotus E22 broke his left rear suspension and parked in the gravel.
