Ferrari go fastest in Malaysia second practice

deh0917fe29The two Ferraris of Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa this afternoon topped the Malaysian free practice timesheets. Raikkonen set the fastest time, followed by his team-mate Massa and the Red Bull of Sebastian Vettel. Williams’ Nico Rosberg was fourth fastest.

Ferrari have suggested that the Sepang circuit might suit their F60 car better than Melbourne last week and being fastest on Friday seems to be a statement of intent from the Maranello squad. The two Brawn GP cars of Jenson Button and Rubens Barrichello failed to blitz the opposition in the same way they did in Australia, emerging 6th and 7th fastest respectively, but their true pace will be confirmed tomorrow.
