If Ferrari set the pace in the first practice this morning with Massa edging Alonso with 0.077s now it was Lotus turn to be on top.

Kimi Raikkonen looked impressive in the second practice session in Bahrain and even if he made a few mistakes during his fastest lap he managed to put the new Lotus E21 on P1. Another team determined to bounce back was Red Bull who secured the 2nd and 3rd positions with Webber and Vettel pushing Ferrari’s Alonso to 4th while Paul di Resta was the fastest of the Force India’s drivers finishing this session on 5th place.
