Sutil on top in second session

Adrian Sutil topped the timesheets in a rain-affected second Japanese practice session.

The German set the fastest lap late on, despite running wide at 130R, in a session which saw little running due to a lack of wet weather tyres.

Sebastian Vettel was some six tenths of a second behind Sutil in second, with the second Force India of Tonio Liuzzi rounding out the top three.
Both Brawn GP cars of Rubens Barrichello and Jenson Button set no time.
