FP2 - Hamilton still on top

Lewis Hamilton set fastest time of 1:38.841 during the brief drying conditions with half an hour to the end of the Practice 2.

The rain continue to fall over Melbourne, limiting the number of laps for the first half of the session. At about half hour into the session, Nico Rosberg lost control under acceleration at turn 7 and crashed his Mercedes W07, tried to get back to the pits, but the team asked him to pull over at the FIA’s request. Virtual Safety Car was deployed.

Quote of the Session:

Ricciardo: "Feel the tyres are starting to go off. I'll come in if you guys are happy."
"Box, Daniel, box."
