Spain 2008 - Free Practice 2 // A second ninety minute session gives drivers another chance to run the cars

Published by Mr. C

That time already is it? My how the day does fly by.

So with free practice 1 complete and the teams preparing for the second run of the day, what do we have in store?

It's another 90 minute session, the weather is warm and sunny and the track is suitably rubbered in. An interesting point brought up by Le Seb in his recent interview with F1.com is the fact that last week a lot of running was done on the circuit during testing, but more importantly, a good deal of that was using slicks which lay even more rubber onto the asphalt. It's not clear how much of a difference that could make this weekend, or if the rain lifted it up again. Nevertheless some laptimes could be a surprise today.

Free Practice 2 begins at 2pm local time (1pm in the UK). As before you can follow Formula 1's live timing online and watch ITV's video coverage too (if you're in the UK, or use a proxy hack).

Update: As an alternative you can watch a slightly lower quality feed on TVlizer 335.

In addition 5Live Sports Extra have full audio coverage and for this session Force India's Ian Phillips thankfully replaces the ever-so-dull Mark Hughes, sitting alongside Maurice Hamilton.

Please shout if you're about!
