Mark Webber topped the afternoon session of practice for the Spanish GP today, picking up where he left off in FP1. This time, Lewis Hamilton split the two Red Bulls with a lap that was just 0.039s off the Aussie’s time, strongly indicating that the McLaren upgrades are working quite well. For most of the session, it appeared to be the Vettel show, with a lap that was over a second faster than anyone else at that time. But once the other drivers also bolted on the soft tyres, it appeared to evenly matched.
