The Red Bulls were untouchable during FP2 at Singapore this afternoon, which seems an ominous sign for yet another lights-to-flag victory for Sebastian Vettel this Sunday. He was a full six-tenths ahead of Mark Webber in the sister car, although the Aussie kissed the barriers at turn 21 and had to pit while the team inspected the car for damage. Nico Rosberg was a further three-tenths behind Webber, while Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton was fourth with Romain Grosjean fifth for Lotus. Fernando Alonso was sixth for Ferrari and followed by Jenson Button for McLaren and Kimi Raikkonen for Lotus, who occupied seventh and eighth respectively. Adrian Sutil narrowly took ninth from Sergio Perez, who rounded out the top ten.
Toro Rosso took eleventh and twelfth at the end of the session, Daniel Ricciardo placing higher than his French team-mate. Force India driver Paul di Resta was thirteenth ahead of his former team-mate Nico Hulkenberg and then Ferrari’s Felipe Massa in a consistently disappointing fifteenth for the Brazilian. Sauber’s Esteban Gutierrez was sixteenth with the Williams duo, led by Maldonado, right behind him. The Caterham men turned the tables on the Marussia duo following the Marussia dominance in FP1: Giedo van der Garde finished ahead of Charles Pic whilst Max Chilton out-performed Jules Bianchi at the back of the grid.
