Vettel hits back in FP2

Hamilton top in FP1

Lewis Hamilton set the fastest lap as McLaren dominated FP1.
The 2008 Champion finished the session with a best time of 1:43.285, three-tenths faster than team-mate Jenson Button. Earlier in the week McLaren had suggested Abu Dhabi was not a circuit that would confer on Red Bull the same sort of advantage that they had recently enjoyed. On the medium tyre in FP1 Hamilton emphasised that point.
