Mercedes did the double today, with Lewis Hamilton locking out P1 for the second session at Hockenheim. Nico Rosberg led for much of the session, but fell behind his teammate by the end of the day. He was also behind his teammate during a pit stop practice, ending up staring at the rear wing of Hamilton whilst the team scrabbled for tyres. His brakes started smoking due to soaring temperatures, but he avoided a fire.

The same cannot be said for Kamui Kobayashi, who hustled his Caterham off track after the green car started smoking. Out of the car, Kamui grabbed for the nearest fire extinguisher and helped the marshals sort out the situation. It topped off a bad session for Caterham, as Marcus Ericsson stopped out on track just a few minutes into the session. He did get going again, but the two Caterham drivers only managed 33 laps between them.
