Ferrari took the first headlines of the day with Fernando Alonso leading FP1, but now there's another chance to top the times with second practice. There were no major surprises in the first session, although Sébastian Buemi spun off towards the very end of the session, and his Toro Rosso had to be recovered.

Another 90 minutes of Free Practice should start at 1pm GMT+1.

One to Watch

I mentioned Chandhok this time last session but I think it's worth keeping your eyes on him for FP2 as well. He ended up the morning session over two seconds slower than his teammate - is that the state of things or was there something troubling Karun? If he comes out and starts complaining about the steering on that car, I'll have an apology to make to Trulli!
