Vettel still leads in Hungarian FP2

Sebastian Vettel topped Friday Practice 2 in Hungary, by almost half a second to Fernando Alonso. Mark Webber was just behind the Ferrari in 3rd position. There were concerns about the kerbs on the track, after Fernando Alonso tore up a chunk of the kerb at Turn 11 near the end of the session.

Behind the top 3, Felipe Massa was the only driver who was able to set a 1.20’s lap. He was 4th, and leading Vitaly Petrov (who had Renault’s new front wing) and Lewis Hamilton. Robert Kubica was 7th, Nico Hulkenberg 8th, Jenson Button 9th and Michael Schumacher 10th.

Pedro de la Rosa was 11th, ahead of Rubens Barrichello and Nico Rosberg. Kamui Kobayashi was 14th, Jaime Alguersuari 15th, with Sebastien Buemi splitting the two Force Indias of Sutil and Liuzzi.

Jarno Trulli was comprehensively the fastest driver of the new teams, 4.4 seconds off Vettel’s time.  Behind him, the Virgins of Timo Glock and Lucas di Grassi were 20th and 21st. Bruno Senna was 22nd, and Sakon Yamamoto was 23rd, amazingly only 1 tenth slower than Senna. Heikki Kovalainen suffered a hydraulic problem after 5 laps, and therefore was well off the pace in last place.
