Practice Two - McLaren hit back at Spa 14 Sep 2007
McLaren turned the tables on Ferrari in Friday afternoon's second practice for the Belgian Grand Prix , with Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton separated by 0.111s as they headed the times from Felipe Massa and Kimi Raikkonen.
Alonso lapped his MP4-22 in 1m 46.654s, a time Hamilton would probably have beaten if he had not got slightly sideways exiting Turn 18 (the new Bus Stop). He stopped the clocks in 1m 46.765s instead. That compared with Massas 1m 46.953s and Raikkonens 1m 47.166s.
This time the Toyota duo of Jarno Trulli and Ralf Schumacher led the pursuit, with 1m 47.491 and 1m 47.946s apiece.
Renaults Giancarlo Fisichella was next up on 1m 48.086s, from Red Bulls Mark Webber (1m 48.271s), BMW Saubers Robert Kubica (1m 48.279s), Heikki Kovalainen in the second Renault (1m 48.567s), BMW Saubers Nick Heidfeld (1m 48.606s), Nico Rosberg in the Williams (1m 48.840s), David Coulthard (whose Red Bull stopped on the circuit at Fagnes), and Hondas Jenson Button (1m 48.919s).
Rubens Barrichello lapped his sister Honda in 1m 49.364s, just ahead of Alex Wurzs Williams (1m 49.393s). Sakon Yamamoto had his best day yet for Spyker, taking his F8-VIIB round in 1m 49.697s for 17th, then came Toro Rossos Sebastian Vettel (1m 49.720s), the Super Aguri of Takuma Sato (1m 50.168s), Adrian Sutils Spyker (1m 50.399s), and Anthony Davidson in the other Super Aguri (1m 50.542s).
Right at the back, Vitantonio Liuzzis miserable day ended when his Toro Rossos Ferrari engine (which had done two races already) broke.
