Japanese GP: Webber tops practice 2 Mark Webber beat Lewis Hamilton to set fastest time in the second practice session at Suzuka on Friday for Sunday's Japanese GP.
Webber's best time of 1m32.493s lap was 0.214s faster than Hamilton could manage. Sebastian Vettel was third, a further tenth back.
Nico Hulkenberg impressed once again for Force India, going fourth fastest, ahead of world championship leader Fernando Alonso and Romain Grosjean.
Last year's winner and this morning's pace-setter Jenson Button was seventh quickest, ahead of Bruno Senna, Felipe Massa and Michael Schumacher.
Mark Webber “It was a nice change to get some good weather; it’s been the first dry weekend for a while. We have plenty to go through this evening, it was a smooth one for us today and we completed all the runs we wanted to. It’s a challenging venue in terms of balance here, but the car ran well and we tested both tires. We have areas where we can improve, mostly with the balance, so we have some work to do. Suzuka is a great track that’s remained untouched for a long time, it’s a classic.”
