Bahrain – Day 2

Massa continued his good run of form in his Ferrari, once again topping the timesheets. Running with a new aerodynamic package, his fastest time was clocked at 1:30.640, and he completed 100 laps of the Bahrain circuit with no problems. His closest rival on the day was Lewis Hamilton, who finished a whopping 0.538 seconds behind, with Kimi Raikkonen left to languish in third place. Hamilton did however have a valid excuse – a hydraulic problem kept his off the track for most of the morning, and he was only able to complete 55 laps all day.
