Button leads rain-hit Monaco second practice

Jenson Button was fastest in second practice for the Monaco Grand Prix.

All of the fastest times were set in the first 15 minutes, though, as showers of rain throughout the session disrupted the running.

An early dash on the super-softs resulted in a 1:15.746 for the McLaren driver, ahead of Romain Grosjean and the two Ferraris.

There was a small dry period in between the showers, but it wasn’t enough to encourage much running on the super-softs. The final half hour saw the track being sufficiently wet to require intermediate tyres.

Mirabeau proved to be treacherous – Bruno Senna, Pastor Maldonado, Sergio Perez, Felipe Massa and Heikki Kovalainen all going off there.
