Mercedes were back on the pace, with Nico Rosberg setting the fastest lap of the second practice session in Sakhir. It was a clear fight between those two, with Ferrari a full half second further down the order. They were scrappy laps from the top four, however, as they pushed to the limits of the dusty track.

Vettel also picked up some damage to the car after a crash with the Force India of Sergio Pérez. Jenson Button was instructed to stop his McLaren out on track, enforcing a second session of curtailed running.
