All the teams went out on the Soft compound tyre with steady time being set until Bruno Senna caught a little of the wall after turn 20 and ended up stalling on the track mid-way around turn 21. the session was red-flagged while the marshals got the car off track via a mobile crane.
It is obvious that there are still lessons that Singapore could learn from Monte Carlo, with no-place available to remove the car without halting the session.
Things began to heat up as the cars went out once the pitlane reopened with the top four favourites for this race trading times before Massa came out on the supersofts and claimed the fastest time.

Alonso came out and beat Webber's time, followed by Button and then by Vettel before, with about 24 minutes remaining, the Ferrari Team stated they were going to concentrate on longer runs for the rest of the session. Webber was called into the pits due to an issue with his car and then the fun stopped and the serious business of trying to find the best set-up for the weekend began, with a number of the teams checking out the longevity of the supersofts.
It is noteworthy that Timo Glock, in the Marussia, has outpaced the two Caterhams in both Free Practice Sessions today.
