Alonso fastest in Thursday practice

Fernando Alonso made the fastest time in free practice two on Thursday adternoon. The Ferrari driver's time of 1m15.123s was just a tenth of a second ahead of Lewis Hamilton's McLaren. Behind him followed Nico Rosberg in the Mercedes, Jenson Button in the Ferrari and Sebastian Vettel in the Red Bull, making it four different teams in the top five. Vettel was only half a second behind Alonso, which should mean all four teams have a decent chance to win.

The practice sessions were relatively uneventful with Tonio Liuzzi's crash in FP1 being the only noticeable accident. The Italian lost his car under braking on his way out of the tunnel and hit the barriers destroying his front wing and suspension. He walked away unhurt, but was forced to sit out the second practice as the team repaired his car. Michael Schumacher and Vitaly Petrov also had minor contact with the barriers  but neither of them seriously damaged their cars.

The results from free practice two:

01. Fernando Alonso Ferrari 1m15.123s 42 laps
