Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel continued their ongoing on-track slugging match with Lewis beating the Red Bull star by 0.27 sec in the second practice session on Friday in Interlagos. The two men were clear of Mark Webber and Felipe Massa, with Felipe Massa’s Ferrari team-mate Fernando Alonso behind him. The worst case scenario for Ferrari if such a situation remains at the end of qualifying will be to send Massa back five-places with a grid penalty, which would bump Alonso up the grid. Behind them there were the two Mercedes of Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg, ahead of Jenson Button Romain Grosjean, Paul di Resta and Nico Hulkenberg and Kimi Raikkonen. Bruno Senna was 13th ahead of Sergio Perez, Kamui Kobayashi, Daniel Ricciardo and Pastor Maldonado. Jean-Eric Vergne set an identical time to his morning session, while Caterham’s Vitaly Petrov and Heikki Kovalainen were ahead of the HRT’s Pedro de la Rosa, Marussia’s Timo Glock and Charles Pic, and Narain Karthikeyan.
