  2. Raikkonen top as Vettel hits wall - read the report

    Andrew Benson

    BBC Sport’s chief F1 writer in Singapore

    Ferrari's Kimi Raikonnen

    Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen led Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes by just 0.011 seconds in second practice at the Singapore Grand Prix.

    Hamilton's title rival Sebastian Vettel was ninth after hitting the wall and damaging his car's right rear corner.

    Vettel was one corner from the end of a lap that looked set to put him up with Raikkonen and Hamilton.

    The German was able to get the car back to the pits but the extent of the damage ended his session.

  5. BreakingRaikkonen fastest in second session

    Sebastian Vettel could only manage 11 laps as he went into the wall, but his team-mate (well, until the end of the season) Kimi Raikkonen is the fastest man out there thanks to a 1:38.699.

    Lewis Hamilton is second quickest with a 1:38.710 and Max Verstappen leads the Red Bulls in third with Daniel Ricciardo fourth.

  6. So close to a disaster

    How close to a massive crash? This close...

    Well played Fernando for keeping his cool.

  8. Ericsson facing the wrong way

    A spin for Marcus Ericsson, who is 12th quickest. He is almost hit by Fernando Alonso, who does extremely well to avoid the Swede. Ericsson had a massive crash in Italian Grand Prix practice, and nearly had another one then.

  9. Top 10 so far

    These are the times from session two, with 12 minutes left...

    1. Kimi Raikkonen (1:38.699)
    2. Lewis Hamilton (1:38.710)
    3. Max Verstappen (1:39.221)
    4. Daniel Ricciardo (1:39.309)
    5. Valtteri Bottas (1:39.368)
    6. Carlos Sainz (1:40.274)
    7. Romain Grosjean (1:40.384)
    8. Fernando Alonso (1:40.459)
    9. Sebastian Vettel (1:40.633)
    10. Nico Hulkenberg (1:40.668)
  10. Post update

    No more of Sebastian Vettel today as Ferrari continue to work on his damaged car. We started the day discussing Kimi Raikkonen and will end it with him being top of the times in session two as the drivers are on their long runs.

  12. Problem for Verstappen

    A problem for Max Verstappen as well. Verstappen is third with Ricciardo fourth after a one-two earlier in the day.

    Verstappen is asked "what happened?"

    He replies: "It happened out of Turn Seven, I accelerated and I don't know it is misfiring or something."

  13. Fire!

    Lance Stroll's brakes are on fire. He immediately gets the call. "Brakes are too hot, slow as you can to cool the brakes."

    He makes it safely back to the garage, with fire extinguishers getting to work and the fire is very quickly put out. That could've been a lot, lot worse. A lucky escape.

  15. 'A good day definitely for Hamilton'

    Jolyon Palmer

    Former Renault driver on BBC Radio 5 live

    It is a good start for Hamilton and Mercedes, who is six tenths faster than Bottas and it is a bad start for Vettel, who has damaged his car and is missing some running.

    A good day definitely for Hamilton.

  16. Times so far with 40 minutes left

    Forty minutes left of second practice and it is good news, bad news for Ferrari.

    Good: Raikkonen is quickest.

    Bad: Vettel's car is being worked on after he just went into the wall.

  17. 'Reasonably big hit'

    Jolyon Palmer

    Former Renault driver on BBC Radio 5 live

    The right front hit then the rear, Sebastian Vettel really did hit the wall quite hard. That was a reasonably big hit. A bit of fluid spilt out and that sounds like it is going to be a longer repair than just changing the wheels.

  18. 'Debris and fluid'

    Jennie Gow

    BBC Radio 5 live pit-lane reporter in Singapore

    There is quite a lot of debris coming from the right-hand side (of Vettel's Ferrari). The hypersoft tyres have some serious marking on it.

    There is fluid draining out all over the floor. That pink fluid is still dripping down the bottom of the car, there is a lot of hydraulic fluid coming out of it.
