Belgium 2011 - Free Practice 2 results // The rain returned, leaving Mark Webber as the fastest driver

Published by Christine Blachford

Second practice at Spa started off with a damp track after the showers from the morning. The track began to dry but it wasn't long before the rain returned and the weather deteriorated. Nico Hülkenberg was in the Force India in place of Adrian Sutil, an unusual decision to switch a driver in FP2. Fernando Alonso was near the top of the timesheets throughout the session, and ended up second, just behind Mark Webber. Sebastian Vettel was further down the order, sitting tenth behind the two Force India cars.
