United States 2012 - Free Practice 2 results // Red Bull remain on top as Friday practice draws to a close

Published by Christine

Sebastian Vettel kept up the pace on Friday topping the second session just as he did the first. He only completed 17 laps, too, with the Red Bull suffering a water leak that kept him in the garage for an hour. Webber was second fastest, with Fernando Alonso slipping into third, and the two McLarens behind the Ferrari. Meanwhile, HRT have voiced their concerns, after appearing anywhere between 6-10 seconds off the pace, and completing only 68 laps between them all day. Pedro de la Rosa has said he's not confident they will qualify for the race.
