Mark Webber continued impressive start of Red Bull`s at Silverstone circuit by setting the fastest time on the second free training.

Australian, who finished the first training with the fourth best time, set a fastest time of 1:31.234 sec. by a margin of almost four tenth ahead of Fernando Alonso at the second position and 6.5 tenth of his team-mate Sebastian Vettel on third. Weber was the first man under 1:32.000 sec. So, Red Bull is in the best position for qualifying on Saturday. Ferrari had an impressive session with Felipe Massa in fourth position, ahead of Mercedes duo Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher. Unlike Ferrari , Mclaren`s cars of Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button had weak pace on this training, ending on 8-th and 13-th position respectively. But we should be aweare that today we saw a lot of experiments with cars at Silverstone.

Sebastian Vettel set the early pace for the British Grand Prix weekend, after topping the timesheets for the first free practice session on Friday morning. Vettel clocked a quickest time of 1:32.280, ahead of Lewis Hamilton and the Renault of Robert Kubica. Both Hamilton and Jenson Button were running exhaust-blown diffusers on their McLarens for the first time, in the hope of closing the gap to Red Bull through high-speed corners. Ferrari, which had hoped to make big strides forward this weekend, was some way off the pace, Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa setting the 13th and 17th fastest times respectively. However, with fuel loads unknown and so many teams experimenting with developments on their cars, the times are not necessarily indicative of the true order.
