Rosberg on top again in Bahrain

by Setanta Staff , 01 April 2016

Nico Rosberg was the fastest man on track at the end of the second free practice session for the Bahrain Grand Prix.


The Mercedes driver topped the timesheets during the morning session and he made it two from two as he once again beat his Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton into second spot.

Rosberg clocked 1:31.001 to finish 0.241s ahead of Hamilton with Jenson Button springing a surprise as he brought his McLaren home in third.

Toro Rosso's Max Verstappen was fourth ahead of the Ferrari pair of Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel, although the latter's session came to a premature end when he was forced to stop out on track after losing his drive.

Daniil Kvyat was seventh for red Bull with his team-mate Daniel Ricciardo ninth behind the Williams of Valtteri Bottas. Felipe Massa completed the top ten in the second Williams.
