Another wet practice sessions for the drivers to tackle which had a 90% chance of rain

Once they had the green light drivers as expected taking their time to make it out on track with the world feed focusing on the fans on trackside and on the drivers looking in no hurry to get out on track most likely to save wet weather tires as they only get a certain amount and they will want to keep them for later in the weekend.


Then finally with 40 mins to go Brendon Hartley and Stoffel Vandoorne get out on track with both drivers being quite cautious on their out-laps on wet weather tires.

Brendon Hartley the first driver to set a time of 1.58, then on his 2 run goes quicker with a 1.57.109.


Kimi Raikkonen was the 3rd driver to tackle the conditions topping the timesheets with a 1.53.443, 3 seconds ahead of Brendon Hartley.


With the conditions now slightly improving both Williams would get themselves out with 30 mins to go with Lance Stroll the first of the two sets a time of a 1.55.713, quickly followed by his team-mate Sergey Sirotkin with a time of 1.55.446, 2 tenths ahead of Lance Stroll with both standing in 3rd and 6th.


With 24 mins to the 2 Sauber drivers set times of 1.54 and 1.55 receptively in 4th and 5th with Marcus Ericsson the quicker of the two.


Pierre Gasly sets the fastest time of 1.53.295 with 18 mins to go pushing Kimi Raikkonen to 2nd.


With the track and whether now improving Sergey Sirotkin was the first to try the intermediate tires but 2 seconds down on 1st place Gasly, making the full wets the preferred tire in this session of FP2.


More drivers now getting on track with Nico Hulkenberg setting a time putting him 1st with a time of 1.52.208, 5 tenths ahead of 2nd place Pierre Gasly.


Sebastian Vettel was the first of the top drivers to get out on track having a go with the intermediate tires setting a not so blistering time of 1.54, Ferrari looking to struggle this weekend. Which does not bode well for Saturday as its looking to stay wet during the day for FP3 and Qualifying.


Lewis Hamilton sets a really fast time of a 1.48, 1 and half seconds ahead of the field with 4 mins to go. Looking set for another Mercedes domination this weekend.


Just at the end of the session, Fernando Alonso set a time of 1.51 putting him in the top 5.


Again not really an indicative session with it looking to be drier on Sunday.


Final classification for the session:
