With the second day of running about to begin, we know that Red Bull are still fast, and that McLaren appear to be closing the gap. It's always hard to tell who is doing what in practice, but you can't mistake the crashes. Renault had troubles yesterday, as did Maldonado.

This is the final hour of practice before qualifying gets underway later, so it will be all about the final setup tweaks for all the teams.
