Fernando Alonso was the fastest driver on the super-soft tyres this afternoon in Monaco second practice.

A 1.15.123 was more than one and a half seconds faster than Vettel’s fastest attempt in TP1. The reigning world champion was half a second away from the Ferrari in 5th.

Lewis Hamilton was 2nd, while Nico Rosberg was again 3rd for Mercedes.

Michael Schumacher was able to join the session after his crash earlier today, and finished 7th. HRT driver Vitantonio Liuzzi was less lucky though, sitting out the entire session after slamming his car into the barriers in TP1.

Mark Webber was 1.5 seconds off the pace in 8th, having missed first practice due to a gearbox issue. Nick Heidfeld and Vitaly Petrov were 10th and 11th, the latter knocking off his front wing at the end of the tunnel near the end of the session.

Pastor Maldonado was unable to continue his impressive form from earlier, and was 15th. Paul di Resta was again slower than two drivers from the bottom 3, finishing 20th. However, this time the Force India suffered from a loss of drive 35 minutes into the session.
