D as the fans certainly had imagined differently . The second training session in Monaco did not go according to plan. First the session started on the dry track. Lewis Hamilton turned the fastest lap early in 1.17.192 minutes. This improved him by 1.8 seconds compared to the first training session.

Merhi accident causes red flags

But after just under fifteen minutes, the chase was over. Roberto Merhi crashed into the guardrails in the harbor chicane, causing an interruption. The marshals had to move the car out of the danger zone.

But just in time for the continuation of the training it started to rain. At first only slightly. This gave Pastor Maldonado the bold idea to do a lap on the super soft tire. However, the Lotus pilot quickly realized that he was risking his neck and neck and snuck back into the pits.

A little later the rain increased. That was the beginning of the long wait. For almost an hour, nothing happened on the slopes. The pilots were afraid of water and chatted with their engineers in the pits. Only a quarter of an hour before the end of the one and a half hour training session, Fernando Alonso was the first to venture again on intermediates. He lured almost everyone else back onto the track, but the times didn't improve any more on the wet track.

Classification not very meaningful

So only the times from the first quarter of an hour shape that not very meaningful classification. Behind Hamilton, teammate Nico Rosberg landed in second place, 0.740 seconds behind. It is followed by the Ferrari duo Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Räikkönen. Daniil Kvyat squeezed in fifth in the Red Bull in front of the two Toro Rosso drivers Carlos Sainz and Max Verstappen.

Fernando Alonso finished training in the McLaren Honda in eighth ahead of Force India drivers Nico Hülkenberg and Romain Grosjean in the lotus. Marcus Ericsson was the only one who did not complete a timed lap with the Sauber.
