Second Friday Practice Session Report - Results

Jean Alesi sets the fastest time of the day over half a second faster than Juan Pablo Montoya. Pedro de la Rosa was third ahead of Hakkinen, Frentzen and Irvine.
Coulthard was 7th with Michael and Ralf Schumacher in 8th and 9th and Barrichello making the top 10.

The top 6 is certainly unusual but it is expected that most of those times were set with low fuel loads.
The time gaps are fairly large with a second covering just the top 5, 2 seconds separating the top 10 and 3 seconds separating the top 17. 

Nick Heidfeld suffered a massive crash which forced the session to be stopped. He was OK. It was the second big accident today with Tomas Enge suffering a big one in the morning session.
Both Benettons suffered engine problems limiting the running time for Fisichella and Button. 

Juan Pablo Montoya covered the most number of laps this session with 24 while Enge didn't participate in the session as his car was being repaired while Nick Heidfeld only covered 8 laps before his crash.

Overall for the day, Montoya covered the most number of laps with 44 followed by Irvine with 42. Tomas Enge covered the least number of laps with 18 while Nick Heidfeld covered 20 laps.

Friday times are not indicative of how the grid will be tomorrow but it appears that the Michelin tyres are good and Montoya appears to be enjoying this track.

The session was run under mainly sunny skies and a temperature of 23 degrees.
