Jenson Button kept McLaren on top in second practice at Istanbul Park, but now with Red Bull's Mark Webber and Sebastian Vettel second and third. both Red Bull cars had some reliability worries in the closing minutes.Hamilton was fourth at the end. Fernando Alonso took fifth by the chequered flag improving his morniung result. Mercedes was sixth and seventh, Nico Rosberg ahead of Michael Schumacher this time, followed by the Renaults and Felipe Massa in the second Ferrari. I think Ferrari hasn`t chance to win the race and celebrate 800 F1 start. Tommorow we expect another Pole from Red Bull`s.
