The second practice session for the British Grand Prix at Silverstone was filled with disruptions and surprises. Aston Martin and Mercedes encountered problems during the session, while Williams impressed with a strong result in front of their home fans. The session began with a five-minute delay to allow for track sweeping after several incidents in the Formula 2 qualifying session. AlphaTauri‘s Nyck De Vries led the pack out onto the track, with early running on the hard and medium tires. Sergio Perez set the initial benchmark time, but it was quickly surpassed by Max Verstappen and Carlos Sainz. The leaders then switched to soft tires for qualifying simulations, with Verstappen posting the fastest time of 1m28.078s. Perez, Alex Albon, and Sainz followed closely behind. The session concluded with high-fuel running, during which de Vries suffered a puncture and Lance Stroll reported being hit by a stone. Despite these challenges, the session ended without any major incidents. In terms of overall performance, Williams impressed with Logan Sargeant finishing in fifth place, while Aston Martin‘s Lance Stroll and Haas‘ Nico Hulkenberg also showed improvement compared to previous sessions. Fernando Alonso had an interrupted run on soft tires due to debris detection. The British home heroes, George Russell and Lando Norris, finished outside the top 10. Lewis Hamilton struggled with worn tires and ended up 15th, while his teammate, Russell, finished ahead of him in 12th place. Unfortunately, Charles Leclerc of Ferrari was unable to participate in the session due to an electrical issue that the team could not resolve in time.
