Vettel fastest in Belgian Grand Prix FP2

Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso topped the first practice session of the Belgian Grand Prix weekend with a time of 1:55.198 as rain before and during the session disrupted team preparations.

The first half of FP1 was defined by the light but steady rain that had fallen across the Spa-Francorchamps circuit in the run-up to the 90-minute session. Despite the showers ceasing just in time for the start, the track was wet and never properly dried as light rain hung in the air throughout the hour and a half.
