Abu Dhabi FP2: Hamilton, Vettel, Alonso, Webber

Hamilton bejelentkezett a futamgyőzelemért…

Lewis Hamilton set the quickest time of the second free practice session in Abu Dhabi on Friday.

The McLaren driver raised hopes that he might be able to compete for victory on Sunday by outpacing both Red Bulls and Fernando Alonso’s Ferrari.

The Yas Marina circuit was two seconds faster than in the day’s earlier session, with the times coming down as more rubber was laid on the track.

Alonso’s Ferrari had been quickest after most of the runners had completed their first long runs on the harder tyre, but Hamilton took the top spot as all the frontrunners improved on the softer compound.

Sebastian Vettel was second behind Alonso early on and improved on the soft tyre to finish second to Hamilton. Alonso ended the 90-minute session third, with Mark Webber fourth.

There were few changes in the final minutes as both Red Bull and Ferrari were lapping on heavy fuel loads at the end.

Robert Kubica was best of the non-title contenders in fifth for Renault, ahead of Felipe Massa (Ferrari), Vitaly Petrov (Renault), Jenson Button (McLaren) and Vitantonio Liuzzi (Force India).

Massa’s session ended early though, when his Ferrari stopped out on track with 22 minutes remaining, due to a reported fuel problem.

Aside from a few more cars sliding off the slippery surface, the only other incident of note was Jaime Alguersuari spinning, but coming to no harm, at Turn 19 with half an hour to run.

  1. Optimistának érzem, de az tény hogy a McLarennek a sima aszfalt fekszik és itt Abu Dhabiban elég sima.
    meglepő továbbá, hogy az utolsó kanyargós szektorban Hamiltoné a leggyorsabb idő, mégha csak 2. szabadedzés is
