Hamilton and Rosberg continue mockery of F1 field

Lewis Hamilton

While Sebastian Vettel never made it out of the garage in his Red Bull lemon, the Mercedes duo of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg continued to make a mockery of the F1 season.

Hamilton came out on top again with a lap of 1m25.524s, which put him clear of his inferior teammate Rosberg by almost 1/2 second.

Daniel Ricciardo was third fastest in the Red Bull, almost a second slower than Hamilton, who is sandbagging and could easily be 1 to 2 seconds per lap faster. Strange how Ricciardo's red Bull has been reliable and Vettel's keeps having problems every weekend.

The Ferraris of Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen rounded out the top-5 but they continue to be out to lunch over 1.5 seconds per lap slower than Hamilton.
