Sebastian Vettel pipped Fernando Alonso to the top time, with the Spaniard splitting the Bulls - all three of which were covered by less than a tenth.

Kimi Raikkonen led Lotus's charge during second practice in fourth as team-mate Romain Grosjean struggled in 18th.

Mercedes Lewis Hamilton span during the opening laps before finishing sixth quickest ahead of team-mate Nico Rosberg.

Paul di Resta suffered from an almost identical tyre delamination to Hamilton in Bahrain which will likely result in some questions directed to supplier Pirelli which has seen five problems in the last four days of action.
