Valtteri Bottas took the second free practice session of the GP of Great Britain, marked by the improvement with respect to the first (favoured by a temperature much closer to what Pirelli need to) and because the first six have already improved the pole position for the 2016.
The finn and his companion Lewis Hamilton exceeded with solvency Ferrari, their main rivals, with the detail that the british achieved his fastest time on soft tyres, which is expected to lower even more the lap times.
beyond the typical scares, the greater incident of these seconds-free the starred Max Verstappen and Felipe Massa, when they met on track, both in fast lap and were on the verge of touching at the entrance of the straight. The brazilian, minutes before, had a serious spin that left him very touched the balance.
In regards to the spaniards, Fernando Alonso repeated a ‘top 10’ with a ninth-place finish that would be better to leave good sensations, while Carlos Sainz, although it has improved as seen in the first free, had to settle for the 11th place.
