Massa leads wet Russian Grand Prix second practice

untitledWilliams’ Felipe Massa topped Friday’s second practice for the 2015 Formula 1 Russian Grand Prix, as heavy rain limited running at the Sochi Autodrom. Just eight men recorded lap times, with Massa leading Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel by two-tenths of a second.

Third place went to Massa’s team mate Valtteri Bottas, while Toro Rosso’s Max Verstappen was fourth, followed by McLaren’s Fernando Alonso. Red Bull’s Daniil Kvyat, Toro Rosso’s Carlos Sainz and McLaren’s Jenson Button completed the timed runners.

Six drivers – Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen, Lotus’s Romain Grosjean and Pastor Maldonado, Sauber’s Felipe Nasr and Marussia’s Will Stevens and Roberto Merhi – opted not to venture out at all in the tricky conditions.

Combined with the half-hour reduction in FP1 this morning, the wet conditions in FP2 mean the teams will have an awful lot of work to do in Saturday’s final practice session to prepare for qualifying and the race.
