The second free practice session of the inaugural Formula1 Grand Prix of India was topped by Ferrari driver Felipe Massa.  Sebastian Vettel yet again finished in second position in the Red Bull Racing car while Fernando Alonso in the other Ferrari was third.  All three drivers ducked under the 1m 26s barrier.

Fourth position in the session went to McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton while fifth went to Red Bull Racing’s Mark Webber and sixth fastest time set by the second McLaren driven by Jenson Button.  Sahara Force India drivers Adrian Sutil and Paul Di Resta set seventh and ninth fastest times respectively.  Too much need not be read into either the times or the positions since different teams and drivers are usually doing different simulations, a fact that was exemplified by the fact that Michael Schumacher could only manage 21st position outside of the 107% time of Felipe Massa.  Schumacher’s Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg was only nineteenth on the timing sheets.
