No big surprises in the second practice at the Spanish Grand Prix as Lewis Hamilton was unbeatable again.
Alonso was 1.6secs off the pace and 0.175secs ahead of team-mate Kimi Raikkonen in fifth.
Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel did not take part in the session after a wiring loom failed after four laps of the first session. Team principal Christian Horner said the problem was unrelated to a chassis change the team made for Vettel ahead of this weekend. The German said the car was swapped for one used in testing as a “sanity check” after the four-time world champion was out-paced by Ricciardo in the last two races.
