There were a handful of dry laps at the start of the session that allowed Lewis Hamilton to move ahead of the Ferrari drivers, but both Räikkönen and Vettel very much still in the mix with Mercedes. The top four were only split by half a second. Then the rain came down and although a couple of drivers did test out the extremely damp conditions, there were no more meaningful lap times set.

Felipe Massa was unable to take part in the session as the team were busy changing the chassis on his car, following his crash into the barriers in the first practice session.
