ABOVE: Alonso rocked the streets of Valencia in Practice Two

 

Practice Two was even more dominant than the first free practice as Alonso set a time three seconds faster than Webber's top time in Practice One. In fact, if you took Webber's time from P1 and ranked it in P2, Mark would have ended the session in 15th spot. What a difference a half a day makes!

 

Alonso's rivals were right behind him. Lewis Hamilton was second and the king of it all, Seb Vettel, was third. Webber was seventh setting a personal best time two seconds faster than his previous best.

 

We've seen a lot of mixed results in Valencia so far, but lets take a look at the results from the second free practice:
