Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull dominated both Friday practice sessions ahead of this weekend’s British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
The German driver pipped his team mate Mark Webber late on in both sessions, as the rest of the field struggled to match the Red Bull pace.
Adrian Sutil was the surprise package in the session, where he posted the third quickest time in his Force India-Mercedes.
