Hockenheim, Germany — Nico Rosberg set the pace in both practices for the 2016 German Grand Prix ahead of Lewis Hamilton as the two Mercedes cars dominated Friday's sessions on July 29.

Top form

Rosberg won the last Formula 1 race on the Hockenheim course two years ago and was more than three-tenths of the second faster than his Mercedes team mate in both sessions.

Hamilton has won five of the last six races and vaulted over Rosberg to the top of the standings with his victory in Hungary last Sunday for a six-point lead.

Sebastian Vettel was third in his Ferrari in both sessions. He improved in the afternoon despite running into traffic, ending just under six-tenths of a second behind Rosberg.

Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo were behind in the two Red Bulls, with Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen sixth.
