Vettel dominates second practice

Posted on | Author Keith Collantine

Only Sebastian Vettel’s team mate could get within one second of him in second practice for the Singapore Grand Prix.

Fernando Alonso looked able to give Vettel a run for his money and went fastest of all through the first sector.

But his session came to an early end a few corners later when he went into the run-off area at turn 18 and stalled.

Despite missing the final 20 minutes, Alonso ended the session fourth, splitting the two McLarens. The five championship contenders occupied the top five places ahead of Rubens Barrichello and Felipe Massa.

Adrian Sutil‘s session also came to an early end when he damaged his Force India’s suspension crashing over the kerbs at the Singapore Sling chicane.

Other drivers survived brushes with the wall, including Jaime Alguersuari and Sutil’s team mate Vitantonio Liuzzi.

Robert Kubica missed much of the session with an hydraulic problem, although his team managed to fix it in time for him to get out at the end. But it meant he saw little of the day’s dry running.
