Red Bull Racing’s Daniil Kvyat has set the fastest time in the second practice session ahead of Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen. Daniel Ricciardo rounded out the top three in a strong performance for Red Bull.

The Mercedes duo of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg didn’t seem to be on the pace this session as neither driver was able to threaten for the top spot throughout the session. Mercedes were also off the pace when it came to the race simulations, falling behind both Red Bull and Ferrari.

While Ricciardo was posting long run times in the low 1m51s – even dipping down to a 1:50.861 – Rosberg’s times were significantly down and inconsistent, ranging between low to mid 1m52s, to mid 1m53s.

Hamilton’s times were healthier than Rosberg’s, although mustn’t have been looking after his tyres well. His times slipped from being competitive with Red Bulls long run pace, to falling half a second behind once his super soft tyres hit the 15 lap mark.

Sebastian Vettel completed a solid run of 35 laps to round out a comprehensive Friday for Ferrari, as both he and Raikkonen were competing with Red Bull on race simulation pace.

McLaren has improved quite considerably with Fernando Alonso ending the session in eighth position and eight-tenths of a second off Kvyat’s best time. Jenson Button was further down behind the Sauber pair of Felipe Nasr and Marcus Ericsson in fourteenth.

Will Stevens completed Manor’s wretched Friday by crashing out of FP2 in the first six minutes of the session, bringing out the red flag for the second time this weekend.
