Monaco 2008 - Free Practice 2 // The drains are fixed up, so ninety minutes awaits our drivers

Published by Mr. C

Here we go again then, time for another 90 minute blast around the streets of Monaco. The first session was a busy affair (aside from the quarter-of-an-hour stoppage to fix a problem with the drains). Both Trulli and Heidfeld fell foul of the barriers, while Coulthard's car failed to make it through a single quick lap.

Those three drivers will be on the back foot in this second session and will be keen to make up for lost time, but out front the battle is squarely a McLaren / Ferrari duel. Although the Italian team finished atop the timesheets earlier it was the opposition who looked the more threatening.

We're in for much more of the same this afternoon too as the weather remains constant. One thing we've yet to see is the softer compound tyre used in anger, and this race weekend marks the first time we've seen the super-soft rubber in action since electronic aids were banned at the beginning of the season.

Free Practice 2 begins at 2pm local time (1pm in the UK). As before we're following Formula 1's live timing as well as watching ITV's online video coverage.
