Vettel stayed on top in second practice

Sebastian Vettel retained his lead in second practice for the Chinese Grand Prix.

He was one tenth of a second faster than Lewis Hamilton, who led his teammate Jenson Button in the McLaren.

The Mercedes duo of Rosberg and Schumacher were 4th and 5th. Felipe Massa was 6th, while a hydraulic issue limited Fernando Alonso to 14th place.

Mark Webber was 1.6 seconds slower than Sebastian in 10th, while both Renaults were in the top 10, with Nick Heidfeld 8th and Vitaly Petrov 9th.

For the second session in a row, the Virgin cars were beaten by HRT, with both Karthikeyan and Liuzzi comfortably ahead of D’Ambrosio and Glock. Only Timo was outside the 107% rule, by 0.2 seconds.

Paul di Resta failed to set a lap, after a fuel pressure problem.
