2012 BRITISH GP: LEWIS HAMILTON FASTEST ON FP2

Hami is always good on wet track !!!
Lewis Hamilton set the fastest time of the second free practice session at Silverstone as heavy rain and accidents punctured the afternoon. After the wet morning session, teams were reluctant to head out early on as a heavy shower was predicted in the first 20 minutes. Fortunately conditions improves as FP2 went on and Hamilton eventually set a 1:56.345 to post the fastest time of the day. He was just 0.129s quicker than the productive Kamui Kobayashi who completed 16 laps as Sauber analysed updates, with Michael Schumacher third fastest - 0.2s slower than Hamilton.

The first forty minutes of the session passed with barely any running, before Kamui Kobayashi finally emerged on track to the delight of a drenched crowd. Bruno Senna, the initial pacesetter, has never raced in Formula One at Silverstone. He handed over his Williams FW34 for the morning session and his afternoon ended in dramatic fashion. Senna’s car snapped sideways as he exited Chapel, bouncing across the grass and gravel and planting itself into the wall. A couple of drivers, including Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel, ventured out on the Intermediate tyres, but they were well off the pace and Alonso hit the wall at Stowe as he returned to the pits.
