Nico Rosberg and Mercedes on top as Massa crashes on second free practice session at Silverstone.

Nico_Rosberg-British_GP-Practice_2Rosberg recorded 1m 32.248s to slip ahead of Webber on 1m 32.547s and Vettel on 1m 32.680s, with local heroes Paul di Resta for Force India and Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton chasing them with 1m 32.832s and 1m 32.911s respectively.

The session was held on a drying track which was slippery to begin with, catching out Ferrari’s Felipe Massa as he spun exiting Stowe corner after 25 minutes. He damaged the front suspension of his car as he slid across the road into a tyre wall, and was classified in 22nd and last place on the strength of his previous best lap of 1m 43.466s.
