Japan 2012 - Free Practice 2 results // Webber pips McLaren to the top spot for second practice at Suzuka

Published by Christine

Second practice featured a few more casualties than the first, with Paul di Resta managing only two laps before his Force India was off into the barriers - session over. Michael Schumacher also crashed his car, but still managed the tenth fastest time. Rosberg's problem from FP1 turned out to be engine related, whilst Kimi Räikkönen was stuck in the garage with a serious KERS issue. It was left to Webber to challenge the McLaren drivers again, with Hamilton finishing two tenths off the Australian's session-topping time.
