Romain Grosjean didn`t allowed the surprise of day !!!Romain Grosjean topped the timesheets of the second day at the final pre-season test, and become the first driver to go fastest on two separate days. Heavy fog postponed the start of the day's running, so 30 minutes was added to the end.
Grosjean set his fastest lap 2 minutes before end of the day, on a set of soft tyres. Grosjean's time knocked Jean-Eric Vergne off the top spot, which the Toro Rosso driver had held since setting a 1:23.361 just before lunch. Vergne's best time was set on soft tyres.
Sebastian Vettel's Red Bull was third fastest, 0.747s adrift of Grosjean's best time. A handful of fans at turn five were treated to the rare sight of his Red Bull grinding to a halt just before lunch, but Vettel was back on track in the afternoon and set his fastest time on medium tyres a couple of hours after lunch. Fernando Alonso set a time 0.086s slower than Vettel and clocked a new mileage record for the car with 125 laps in total, including the F2012's first race simulation.
