Nico Rosberg gave his wounded team-mate Lewis Hamilton plenty to think about by topping the timesheets in both practice sessions Friday for this weekend's Japanese Grand Prix.The German, who has a 23-point championship lead over Hamilton with five races left this year, pipped the triple world champion by two tenths in the morning sunshine and just 0.072sec under cloudy skies in the afternoon.No harm was done, however, as Rosberg set the quickest lap of 1min 32.250sec.Kimi Raikkonen was third fastest in the second session, just three tenths off Rosberg's pace with Red Bull's Max Verstappen splitting the Ferraris in fourth, a shade quicker than Sebastian Vettel.
