Red Bull drivers Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber posted lap times a full third of a second quicker than their nearest competition in Free Practice 2 in Abu Dhabi.
Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes), Kimi Raikkonen (Lotus) and Nico Rosberg (Mercedes) rounded out the top five.
The top 10 at the end of FP2 were: F1 champion Vettel followed by Webber, Hamilton, Raikkonen, Rosberg, Perez, Button, Fernando Alonso (Ferrari), Hulkenberg and Felipe Massa (Ferrari.)
“It’s difficult to say today how we compare to the others, we know the Lotus is quick here, but we also had decent pace today," said Vettel afterwards.
"It’s not always so easy at this circuit with the conditions changing throughout the day; we start in the sun and finish at night and the track temperature changes during that time. But, no big issues, so I’m pretty happy.”
