European Grand Prix 2012: The best photos from Friday practice
We bring you some of the best images from Friday practice for the European Grand Prix at the Valencia Street Circuit
Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel set the pace in the second free practice session ahead of Sunday’s European Grand Prix in Valencia.
The defending double world champion posted a time of 1m39.334s, with Force India’s Nico Hulkenberg and Sauber’s Kamui Kobayashi in second and third place.
“We have tried some new parts on the car today, but the lap times have not really allowed us to have a fair conclusion of them yet,” said Vettel.
“It was important to have a clean practice today and I’m happy with what we did. The conditions will change again for Sunday I think; it was a bit cooler today, which will make a difference.
“It’s close between the teams and it’s not yet clear what the right strategy is for Sunday, hopefully we can make a step forward tomorrow.”
Earlier, Williams’ Pastor Maldonado had topped the timesheets in the morning session with a time of 1m40.890s around the Valencia Street Circuit.
