Double Formula One champion, Fernando Alonso, has recorded the fastest time during the second practice of the Singapore Grand Prix last night.
The Spaniard piped his former team-mate Lewis Hamilton, who recorded the fastest time during the first practice session. Alonso sped through the twisty Marina Bay circuit to record a time of 1min 45.65 seconds, 0.96 seconds faster than Hamilton.
The street-lit circuit proved to be harsh on others, as Australia’s Mark Webber crashed into the barriers during his first practice session, while the last Grand Prix winner Sebastien Vettel, lost control of his car twice.
