Reliability became a key concern in the second Silverstone practice session. Sebastian Vettel suffered a damaged under tray which delayed his running. Lewis Hamilton posted the fastest time before drawing to a halt out on track. The front left tyre of Jean-Éric Vergne's Toro Rosso just popped off midway through a lap, and Valtteri Bottas saw his engine cover explode off the Williams in a shower of debris.

Hamilton's lap time was enough to see him take top honours as the long runs drew to their conclusion, with teammate Nico Rosberg only managing second behind him. Third place was once again reserved for Fernando Alonso, proving the Ferraris can't be counted out just yet.
