After a fantastic start to the season, Kimi Raikkonen also took first place ahead of Vettl and Massa in Malaysia in the second practice. Finch’s fastest lap was, of course, set just before the rain, which virtually interrupted training half an hour before the end. Of course, this did not stop the action, but only catching the fastest times, as the teams and racers wanted to prepare for the rain race as well. Luckily, it was hot enough in Sepang that the track started to dry quickly, but it just wasn’t completely dry by the end of training.
It is worth mentioning the fourth place of Alonso in Ferrari ahead of Webbro and Grosjean. Rosberg, di Resta, Hamilton and Sutil followed to tenth place, but he had mechanical problems. It is also worth mentioning the rotation of Gied van der Gard when it started to rain, and Hulkenberg, who did not replace tires without a profile in time for those for light rain.
