Fernando Alonso headed the times in the second practice session in Monaco.

The Ferrari driver used the super-soft tyres to set a time of 1’15.123.

Lewis Hamilton went second fastest with just over 20 minutes left, coming within a tenth of a second of Alonso’s time.

As in the first session, Nico Rosberg was third fastest. Jenson Button was fourth in front of Sebastian Vettel.

Michael Schumacher was able to join in quite early on following his crash in the second practice session.

But Vitantonio Liuzzi never made it out of the HRT garage after damaging his car in the first session.

Paul di Resta hit trouble, stopping with a loss of drive as he came out of the tunnel.

Shortly before the end of the session Vitaly Petrov lost control of his car on the exit of the tunnel and knocked the front wing off the car.
