Formula One: Rosberg back on top in first practice

HOCKENHEIM, Germany, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 29th july,2016) - An in-form Nico Rosberg dominated Friday's opening free practice for this weekend's German Grand Prix, clocking the fastest lap ahead of Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton.

Just five days after losing the leadership of this year's drivers' world championship for the first time, the 31-year-old German responded with a flawless demonstration of smooth lapping on home soil at Hockenheim. Rosberg clocked a fastest lap of one minute and 15.517 seconds to outpace defending three-time champion Hamilton by 0.326 seconds, the Briton never looking likely to match his team-mate's speed.
