Also during the second training session for the GP of Australia with Lewis Hamilton for the fastest time driven. The belgian Stoffel Vandoorne drove a strong tenth time.

On the street circuit of Albert Park in Melbourne we received during the second training session for the GP of Australia already have some more action and spectacle on the job. The riders looked obviously more the limit, and that leads of course to mistakes.

The street circuit in Australia is at the beginning of a race weekend, after all, still very ‘smooth’. Due to a lack of grip, went to many a rider in the error. This can cause of course, for the spectacular images.

Halfway through the second training session there was a red flag because there is a cable on the start-finish line was peeled off, a minor flaw that actually would not be allowed. After the cable was removed, the riders were able to quickly restart the job on.

Just like during the first training session it was Lewis Hamilton who, at the end of the session, the fastest time to his name. In comparison with the first training session layers of the lap top however, quite a bit closer to each other.

Max Verstappen, followed just over a tenth of Hamilton while Valtteri Bottas also had only a thick two-tenths had to admit. Were times and Vettel put Ferrari on the fourth and fifth place.

When McLaren says they are undoubtedly back at the second training session. Fernando Alonso and our fellow countryman, Stoffel Vandoorne reason in the top ten. Again an encouraging result for Vandoorne, who is now already a much better seizoensbegin than last year.
