Singapore 2008: Friday Afternoon Practice

Singapore 2008: Friday Afternoon Practice

The second session, which was brought forward slightly to maximise the running, saw Fernando Alonso put in an impressive performance for Renault, topping the timing sheet with a margin of a tenth to Lewis Hamilton. Felipe Massa was third, ahead of McLaren’s other driver Heikki Kovalainen. Kimi Raikkonen finished down in seventh, and a few drivers took to escape roads, although little damage occurred.

Hamilton’s practice one time wasn’t beaten, and the general order of running remained, with Jenson Button doing well again, Nico Rosberg keeping himself nearer the top than the bottom and Mark Webber managed to get some running in his Red Bull after his earlier incident.

However, the Red Bull teams still weren’t appearing to improve, and Jarno Trulli stayed close to the bottom of the tables but did improve by a fraction. Interestingly, Giancarlo Fisichella was lapping well in the Force India, but a gear box issue sidelined the Italian towards the end of the session.
