Hamilton tops Rosberg in practice

Lewis Hamilton continued to top the times, ahead of his Mercedes teammate and championship leader Nico Rosberg in yesterday's second free-practice session for tomorrow's Hungarian Grand Prix.

The Briton, 29, is seeking to complete a hat-trick of wins and claim a record fifth victory at the Hungaroring to cut into Rosberg's 14-point lead, and clocked a best lap in one minute and 24.482 seconds.

This lifted him 0.238 seconds clear of his German teammate, who seemed at a loss at times as to how he could claw back any of Hamilton's apparent advantage on one of his favourite circuits.

Four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel was third, six-tenths off the pace, in his Red Bull, but ahead of two-time champion Fernando Alonso of Ferrari, who was nine-tenths adrift.
