The silver arrows are back. After the new M ercedes works team had held back in the first practice session in the morning, Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher flexed their muscles for the first time in the second test. With soft tires, Rosberg set the fastest time of the day in 1: 55.409 minutes early in the second test.

Four new and old 'Silver Arrows' at the top

Lewis Hamilton was just under half a second behind in second place. The McLaren pilot was just ahead of it Michael Schumacher's second Mercedes, which moved up to third place. With Jenson Button in fourth place, another driver with a Mercedes engine ended up in the top quartet. How much the times are worth will only be shown on Saturday. In the morning the Silver Arrows complained of balance problems.

Four Germans in the top six

Behind them, the other German drivers also spoke up. Sebastian Vettel (Red Bull) was fifth, however, more than a second behind the day's best time. Just behind them, Nico H├╝lkenberg, the fourth German, landed in the top six.

Adrian Sutil did not chase times in the afternoon. As one of the few pilots, the Force India pilot fell short of his time from the first practice session, which a few hours earlier was enough for first place in the classification. In twelfth place, Sutil was already two seconds behind the best time.

Glock with problems again

The new teams gathered again at the end of the field. Timo Glock was already struggling with clutch problems in the morning and was only able to do three laps in the afternoon. Behind the two Lotus drivers Heikki Kovalainen and Jarno Trulli, the Virgin man landed in 20th position. Even Bruno Senna in the new HRT was able to exceed the odometer reading of the Odenwald with 17 laps.

For Senna's team-mate Karun Chandhok looks it doesn't look good, however. Hispania's second car didn't leave the pits in the afternoon either. Like the Indian, Sebastien Buemi could not have a time noted in the afternoon. The Swiss had to turn back into the pits after just one lap with technical problems.
