Germany 2008 - Free Practice 2 // The weather won't get in the way of the second practice session

Published by Mr. C

Formula One, free practice two. The second of two ninety minutes sessions gets going at exactly 2pm in Germany (or 1pm if you're in the UK).

After a pretty damp start to this morning's early session, we weren't expecting a lot of track action, but the teams certainly delivered. With most drivers putting in more than 20 laps, it was non stop action all the way, especially when Kubica threw it into the barriers unprompted.

The McLaren's looked strong, while Vettel appears to be in his element at his home track. BMW have work to do this afternoon though. Before his off, Robert had managed just 8 laps of running so they're well and truly on the back foot at the moment. Ferrari managed to look convincing in the wet too, which is no mean feat given the results of their last outing in such conditions.

In terms of the weather, the rain looks like it might hold off for the remainder of this afternoon's running. It should be dry tyres all round, and hopefully will give us a better indication of who made improvements during the last test and who fell behind.

It'll be live timing plus a little bit of ITV video streaming for us this afternoon.

Please say "Hi" if you're following the action, and let us know what you can see / hear during FP2.
