Lewis Hamilton completed a successful Friday by setting the fastest time for the second practice session in a row.
Hamilton produced a 1’14.026 which put him half a second clear of most of his rivals. Only Sebastian Vettel got substantially closer with a 1’14.300.
Mark Webber was third ahead of the two Ferraris. Next were the two Mercedes who appeared to benefit from running without their Coanda exhaust.
Jenson Button, Romain Grosjean and Paul di Resta completed the top ten. Kimi Raikkonen, 12th, said his tyres were overheating during his high-fuel run at the end of the session.
As in the first session HRT limited their running, both drivers completing fewer than half the laps of most other runners. Charles Pic also missed some running after pulling over with less than half an hour of the session remaining.
