Mark Webber led FP2 in Korea
Robert Kubica was 4th, Jenson Button 5th, and Felipe Massa 6th, who was complaining of his Ferrari being “undriveable” in the final sector of the lap. Sebastian Vettel, Vitaly Petrov, Nico Rosberg and Kamui Kobayashi finished the top 10.
Nick Heidfeld was 11th, followed by Michael Schumacher. Rubens Barrichello headed the two Force India cars, with Liuzzi leading Sutil. Nico Hulkenberg was 16th, while Toro Rosso were 17th and 18th.
The Lotus duo of Trulli and Kovalainen stamped their authority on the best new team title, with both drivers being within several hundreths of a second within each other. Timo Glock then headed Lucas di Grassi, who had been given back his car from Jerome D’Ambrosio. Sakon Yamamoto was 7.2 seconds off the pace, while Bruno Senna only managed 3 laps thanks to his car being repaired for most of the session, after his suspension failure in FP1.
This second session was much more eventful, with Sakon Yamamoto crashing at Turn 16 within a few minutes of the session starting. Several turns, especially Turn 12 in particular, caught out many drivers such as Mark Webber. Vitantonio Liuzzi stopped on track with a few minutes to go in the session, while Jenson Button experienced a fault with his exhaust.
I would post the times for this session, but my chart isn’t uploading properly. I’ll try to fix this soon.
