Sebastian Vettel topped the times during second practice for the Belgian Grand Prix despite suffering a right-rear puncture.

The Red Bull driver was just ahead of his team-mate Mark Webber as the pair dominated the session to go eight tenths ahead of Romain Grosjean in third.

Vettel's session wasn't all smooth running as he suffered a puncture in the closing minutes, causing some minor damage to the floor of his RB9.

Felipe Massa meanwhile continued Ferrari's strong pace to go fourth quickest ahead of Jean-Eric Vergne and Kimi Raikkonen.

Caterham's Giedo van der Garde lost control of his car and impacted the barriers at turn 15, ending his session early.
