    Lewis Hamilton is certainly not prepared to throw in the towel yet.

    That's it from us, we'll be back for coverage of qualifying day from 09:30 GMT tomorrow. It would be great if you can join us. Ta ta for now.

  2. Tight at the top

    Less than a tenth of a second between Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg but Hamilton looks in fighting mood. Will it be enough, though? He really needs the Red Bulls to get into the mix.

    One thing is for sure; qualifying is going to be very interesting,

    I am excited to see Williams and in particular Bottas looking competitive. At the moment it is looking good for Hamilton for the race win.

    Two minutes left of second practice. 

    Sebastian Vettel has moved from standing behind a metallic silver barrier to standing behind an orange one.

    Vettel's team-mate Kimi Raikkonen is sneaking in a swift run on ultra softs. He's popped back to the pits to have the purple-walled tyre bolted on.

    Sebastian Vettel's Ferrari has been wheeled off the track and the four-time world champion is stood behind a barrier watching the action.

    He should 'do an Alonso' and grab a deckchair or a TV camera.

  12. Gearbox failure for Vettel

    Oh dear. 

    A Ferrari has pulled up on the side of the circuit. It's Sebastian Vettel.

    "OK I think I have a gearbox failure," he says.

    Max Verstappen switches from ultra softs to softs as we enter the final 10 minutes of the session.

    "I'm destroying my front right tyre again," complains Max Verstappen. He's just completed his 10th lap on the ultra softs.

    Jenson Button never ended up doing another qualifying sim on the ultra softs. He's back in the pits now and preparing to join the long run runners.

    Meanwhile, Kimi Raikkonen is trying the super softs out for size, meaning they've covered the whole colour range of tyres available this weekend.
