Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo have been fastest in the second free practice session for the Belgian GP. The duo of Red Bull took advantage of the absence of a Mercedes, which opted not to take to the track the tires more competitive, superblandos, and have the rest of the weekend with an extra push for both classification and for the race.
To see the first Mercedes there that go up to the sixth position, where he ended up the favorite of the weekend, Nico Rosberg. In the absence of the doubly punished Lewis Hamilton, the German is more than strong candidate to get the pole and the win on Sunday, while Red Bull’s promise to confront them in battle.
The Ferrari, again, we were a little bit more away from what they wanted. Sebastian Vettel, who returned to show his character to complain when you estorbaban, finished fourth in the middle of the two Force India, with Nico Hülkenberg third and Sergio Perez fifth. Something further back, seventh, ended up Kimi Räikkönen, in the circuit where the more victories it has achieved 20 that accumulates in your cv.
Fernando Alonso, after the breakdown of the first free, gave his first laps of the weekend, something closer to the performance that aspired to be this weekend. Was twelfth, just ahead of a Lewis Hamilton practically devoted the session to test the ‘set up’ of the new pieces.
