Lewis Hamilton fastest as Nico Rosberg crashes at Australian GP

Nico Rosberg crashed his Mercedes in second practice at the season-opening Australian Grand Prix. The bad start to his campaign was emphasised as team-mate Lewis Hamilton used the best of the damp conditions to set the pace at Albert Park.

Rosberg lost control accelerating out of Turn Six on a wet track, breaking off his front wing, and had to stop on the circuit to avoid dropping debris.

Hamilton begins his attempt to win a fourth world title this weekend.

He and Rosberg have battled for the drivers’ championship for the past two years, and their intense rivalry is expected to resume at Albert Park this Sunday – live on 5 live from 04:00 GMT and online from 03:30.
