2016 German GP FP1: Rosberg outpaces Hamilton

Local boy, Nico Rosberg set the fastest time in the morning practice session for German GP with a 1:15.517, three tenths faster than championship leader and his team-mate Lewis Hamilton.

After losing out to Red Bull last weekend, Ferrari was ahead of their rivals for second in the constructors’ standings in FP1 with Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen third and fourth respectively.

Red Bull drivers Max Verstappen was fifth and Daniel Ricciardo sixth in the first free practice in German Grand Prix on Friday.

The young ace fastest lap of 1:16.927 was good enough for fifth fastest in the first 90 minute session, while Ricciardo was sixth with a lap of 1:17.089.

Fernando Alonso, who turned 35 on Friday, took seventh fastest ahead of his teammate Jenson Button, McLaren maintaining the pace and holding fourth fastest team.

Toro Rosso duo Daniil Kvyat and Carlos Sainz rounded off the top ten, but with the Williams and Force India drivers yet to set a time on the fastest tyre, their position is likely to come under threat in the next practice session.

Hamilton completed a hat-trick of successive wins at the Hungarian GP to move six points clear of Rosberg in the title race.
