2014 Australia GP: Formula One F1 Practice Two Results - Hamilton, Mercedes Fastest!


By Mike Sulka

Slip, slide, sideways action and lots of trips to and through the gravel! The 2014 Formula One F1 season continued in Melbourne, Australia with practice session number two for the Australian Grand Prix. While the TV talking heads focused on new engines, noses, and energy systems, watching the drivers struggle with these new drone sounding beasts was eye candy for fans.

Lewis Hamilton and his No. 44 Mercedes led the day with a lap of 1:29.625. Overall, the former world champion turned 37 laps. Last year's Pole time at Albert Park was 1:27.407. It completed the day of dichotomy for Hamilton after sitting through the first practice.

Second quick was Nico Rosberg and his No. 6 Mercedes with a lap of 1:29.782. Overall, Mercedes have seemed to have the best, most reliable package during winter testing - as was the case today.

After leading practice session one, Fernando Alonso and his No. 14 Ferrari was third fastest, half a second off Hamilton's top time. Last season, Ferrari showed time and time again, they had the best race pace... might it be the case again this year ?

After problems in the first session, Sebastian Vettel accumulated 41 laps - most in the session - and was fourth quick. The Red Bull RB 10 seems a step off the front runners even when expresses moments of reliability. But can it finish the race on Sunday ?

Jenson Button was fifth quick for McLaren.

Overall, 19 Formula One F1 car/driver combinations turned timed laps during the first practice. Next up is practice session three on Saturday.
