Alonso tops in incident-filled second practice at Canada



June.10 – The Ferraris Fernando Alonso on top in second practice session for the Canadian Grand Prix on Friday. Alonso moved to the top of the times middle through the session and continued there until the end with a best of 1m15.107s, outpacing Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel by nearly four tenths of a second.

The Ferrari takes pleasure in a very optimistic start to the weekend, with Felipe Massa finishing in this position in front of the McLaren’s of Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button.
The reigning champion Sebastian Vettel showed lost the majority of first session was not a big problem for him, His lap of 1m15.476s was over a tenth of a second faster than the best set by Rosberg in the opening session.

The Second practice session was also red-flagged with some 30 minutes residual when Kobayashi crashed into the wall at the first chicane when he ran too high over the kerbs. His Sauber impacted straight into the wall and the Japanese could not return to the track.

After the restart, Jerome D’Ambrosio lost control of his car at the same spot and also crashed seriously against the wall, causing another red flag. The Belgian rookie emerged from the car without assistance, but his car was heavily damaged.

And McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton suffered a puncture right after that, probably caused by debris from D’Ambrosio’s crash.

The Force India’s driver Adrian Sutil was the leading role of a different incident during the session when he crashed against the wall coming out of Turn 7. His Force India’s left front suspension was damaged and the German had to miss the last 35 minutes of action.
