German GP: Vettel puts Red Bull on top in second practice

Sebastian Vettel moved Red Bull to the top of the timesheets in second practice for the German Grand Prix at the Nurburgring.

The German seized control of the session on his first soft-tyre run, working his way down to a 1m30.416s that would stand for the remainder of the session.

Team-mate Mark Webber, on pole here in 2009 and ’11, had been fastest in the early medium-compound running and again when the field first switched to softs.

He was bumped down however, first by Vettel and then by the Mercedes of Nico Rosberg, who got to within a quarter of a second of Vettel’s time.

Webber did put it one of the stronger long-run stints, managing over 20 laps on mediums and at times gaining almost two seconds on the soft-shod Vettel.

Free practice one pacesetter Lewis Hamilton did not match team-mate Rosberg’s improvement on the option tyre, and while he initially slotted into fourth he was gradually eased down to eighth as Lotus’ and Ferrari’s drivers improved.

Romain Grosjean beat Kimi Raikkonen to fourth by just five thousandths of a second, while Fernando Alonso – now free of the electrical gremlins which dogged him in first practice – shaded Massa by an even smaller margin in the fight for sixth.

Hamilton ended two tenths down the road in eighth, and as the final man to get within one second of the ultimate pace.

Jenson Button was next up, fractions ahead of Force India duo Paul di Resta and Adrian Sutil, the latter of whom lost time in the garage following a wild exit at the final turn.

The order below was largely grouped into teams, with Sergio Perez in 14th the only exception as Toro Rosso shaded Sauber, Williams, Caterham and Marussia.

Valtteri Bottas and Pastor Maldonado staged the closest of the inter-team fights, with the Finn edging out his stable-mate by just one thousandth of a second in what was a fight for 17th.

Jules Bianchi, back at Marussia in place of free practice one stand-in Rodolfo Gonzalez, sat out the final 30 minutes of running due to illness.

German GP: Lewis Hamilton leads Nico Rosberg in first practice

Lewis Hamilton edged out team-mate Nico Rosberg as Mercedes took command of the first German Grand Prix practice session.

The Briton finished more than one second clear of the entire field bar Rosberg, with whom he traded fastest laps as the Brackley-based squad hit the front at the halfway stage.

Hamilton eventually settled the fight with a 1m31.754s which put him two tenths clear of Rosberg, victorious last time out at Silverstone.

Red Bull’s Mark Webber prevailed in what was a much tighter fight for third, eclipsing the lead Force India of Adrian Sutil by just 0.033s.

Kimi Raikkonen, Felipe Massa and Jenson Button all got within four tenths of Webber’s time.

Despite Massa’s pace it was an unhappy session for Ferrari however, as Fernando Alonso failed to complete a lap due to electrical issues.

The Spaniard lost power and abandoned his car just four minutes into the session, and then suffered an almost identical failure 40 minutes later on what was his second attempt at a first installation lap.

This time he was at least able to revive the car and return to the pits, but was unable to return and ended the session with just two aborted laps under his belt.

Sebastian Vettel, Alonso’s chief championship rival, ended the session in eighth ahead of Romain Grosjean, who slipped in front of Sergio Perez and Paul di Resta as the chequered flag fell.
