The second practice showed almost the same result as the first one. Except that this time Hamilton was faster then Rosberg. All drivers used the medium and soft tyre compound this session.
Sebastian Vettel had bad luck as he could not drive this session, because he had to get a new engine. He already had to change his engine for the 5th time this season. He will probably be one of the first drivers who will get the engine change penalty.
This season drivers are allowed to use 8 engines for the whole 2014 season. When they use more then 8 engines, the driver of the car will receive a 10 places grid penalty for each additional engine change.
Pastor Maldonado didn't put in any laptime because he crashed his Lotus E22 in the frist lap he drove.
