Nico Rosberg put a crash in the first practice session behind him to set the pace in FP2 and team-mate Lewis Hamilton was left frustrated by issues with his Mercedes at the Singapore Grand Prix on Friday.

Rosberg, racing in his 200th Grand Prix, has won both races since the mid-season break to reduce championship leader Hamilton's advantage to just two points and laid down a marker by clocking the fastest lap under the lights at Marina Bay.

The German lost his wing in a smash after smashing into the barriers at Turn 18 late in the opening practice session and was only fifth-quickest, with Hamilton fourth as Red Bull duo Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo made an early statement by finishing FP1 first and second respectively.
