Lewis Hamilton beat his Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg to set the fastest time in second practice for Sunday’s British Grand Prix.

The Mercedes cars were miles ahead of the rest of the pack at Silverstone and Hamilton was 0.228 seconds clear of the drivers’ championship leader.

Hamilton, however, did fail to complete a race-simulation run after his engine suffered an oil-pressure problem as he left the pits.

Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso was third-fastest ahead of Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel.

“The car felt good. It was just the most important run I missed,” said Hamilton.

“It happens. I don’t know why it happens to my car so much. I don’t really know what the car feels like for the race but I will try to get some long runs tomorrow.”
