Malaysian GP - Practice Two Results

Results: Hulkenberg 12th (1:39.464), Di Resta 13th (1:39.625), Karthikeyan 23rd (1:43.658).

From our FP1 review:

"Heavy rain is expected for FP2 which should mean limited running, but in Malaysia you can just never tell!"

... well there was no rain but as we said, in Malaysia you can just never tell! :P

Anyhow Nico Hulkenberg made it 4-1 against Paul Di Resta in terms of who's ontop in practice. It doesn't really count for much but it will be interesting to see who has been higher, more often, come the end of the season.

In total the Sahara Force India team completed 46 laps. There was a minor problem associated with Paul's wheel but it was quickly sorted. Paul also had a few off-track excursions during the session but crucially he kept the car out of the barriers so there were no major problems.

At the back of the grid Narain Karthikeyan completed the session in his HRT with no reliability problems; he managed 18 laps, finishing 2 tenths faster than teammate de la Rosa. He did have a spin towards the end of the session, the cause looked like that he was simply distracted by adjusting something on the steering wheel - perhaps he's still getting used to the 2012 systems and procedures!

Anyhow, things looking better for both Sahara Force India and Narain Karthikeyan here in Malaysia than they did last weekend in Australia!
