Lewis Hamilton sets the fastest time in an action-packed second practice session for the British Grand Prix before his Mercedes breaks down at Silverstone.

Hamilton failed to do a race-simulation run after his engine suffered an oil-pressure problem as he left the pits with 30 minutes remaining, with his fastest time 0.228 seconds quicker than Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg.

A number of drivers suffered problems during the session, with a wheel coming loose on Jean-Eric Vergne's Toro Rosso and a piece of bodywork bursting on the Williams of Valtteri Bottas.
