Spanish Grand Prix 2013: Vettel leads the way on Friday

Sebastian Vettel set the fastest time of the second free practice session as Red Bull look set to dominate another race weekend this season.

The second session allowed the drivers to get some dry running after FP1 had been under wet conditions.

Vettel was pushed all the way in FP2 with Fernando Alonso close behind setting the second fastest time.

Mark Webber set the third fastest time in the other Red Bull whilst Kimi Raikkonen was some way off Vettel’s time in fourth.

Felipe Massa set the fifth fastest time ahead of Lewis Hamilton in the first of the Mercedes.

Hamilton may have has an off track moment but his time was enough to keep him ahead of his teammate Nico Rosberg who was seventh.

Adrian Sutil continued Force India’s good form setting the eighth fastest time with his teammate 10th. Di Resta did not take part in the final 20 minutes of practice after his tyre shred its tread just past the pits.

The two Force India’s were split by the Toro Rosso of Jean-Eric Vergne whilst his teammate Daniel Ricciardo was 11th.

Jenson Button could only manage 12th in the lead McLaren whilst behind him his teammate Sergio Perez was 13th and Valtteri Bottas was 14th for Williams.

Sauber continue to struggle despite bringing a new rear wing with Nico Hulkenberg only managing 15th with his teammate Esteban Gutierrez 17th. They were split by the second Williams of Pastor Maldonado.

Romain Grosjean could only manage 18th ahead of Giedo van der Garde in 19th, Jules Bianchi in 20th and Charles Pic and Max Chilton.
