The Mercedes driver, Lewis Hamilton just about edged ahead of the consecutive three time World Champion, Sebastian Vettel to grab the second practise victory, giving him the advantage going into tomorrow’s final practice. It was a tight practice as Hamilton only managed to get his car over the finish line 0.108 seconds ahead of his German rival, whilst Hamilton’s team mate, Nico Rosberg finished third. Sebastian Vettel’s team mate, Mark Webber managed to grab fourth place for Red Bull putting Mercedes in a better position at the moment.
Britain’s Lewis Hamilton first gained the lead from the first practise and impressively kept it through the second, but now there are worries about the weather for the actual Grand Prix. Tropical Storm Fitow is making its way through Asia and the Formula 1 officials have been keeping their eye on the storm, hoping it doesn’t come near Mokpo in Korea so it doesn’t interrupt the Grand Prix. When Korea had their debut Grand Prix in 2010, bad weather caused a one hour delay, forcing the race to finish in dark conditions.
Lewis Hamilton was delighted with his performance for these first two practise days in Korea. The 2008 World Champion Driver commented, “It’s been great. Really happy with the way the process and sessions have gone. We have some improvements we can make but otherwise all good. This is the first time I’ve actually felt like P2 has gone well, at least what I can remember. The car feels great here. We look like we’re competitive.” After this weekends Korean Grand Prix, there are only 5 more Grand Prix’s remaining with Brazil hosting the final Grand Prix of the year.
