Alonso puts Ferrari on the spotlight as he edges Hamilton for P1.

Fernando_Alonso-Spanish_GP-2014-R02It was a boring wet practice two session here in Monaco with just Valtteri Bottas going out for one installation lap in the first 40 minutes, but as the track started to dry out more drivers ventured out and we saw Jean-Eric Vergne being the first one to put the slick tyres followed by the Sergio Perez and Nico Hulkenberg.

In the last minutes of the session all the major players went out on the softer tyres and it was Alonso who set the fastest time of 1:18.482s followed by Lewis Hamilton at some 0.4s behind and Sebastian Vettel came third for Red Bull with 0.5s off the pace.

Unfortunately Raikkonen had a gearbox problem and had to return to pits after just 4 laps and the only other driver in trouble was Marcus Ericsson from Caterham who almost destroy his car in the last bend before the tunnel entry.
