Lewis Hamilton Fastest in FP2 in Abu Dhabi

Lewis Hamilton finished the second free practice session ahead of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix with the fastest time with Nico Rosberg second and Kevin Magnussen a surprise third.  Hamilton’s fastest time of the session was 1:42.113

As darkness fell over the Yas Marina circuit it was very close between the two Mercedes drivers.  Less than a tenth of a second separated them.  3rd placed Kevin Magnussen’s best time of FP2 was about 0.7s slower.  Magnussen, who was running the new version of the McLaren team’s front wing was around 0.7s faster than Button – although the British driver only managed half the session following on from his mechanical problems this morning so his pace was probably not representative.

After a good morning, Alonso managed no running in the afternoon session, although Williams managed to put their problems behind them with Bottas in 5th and Massa in 10th.
