Natural order restored? Vettel tops Free Practice 2

It would appear that Red Bull had to work hard this afternoon to reach the top of the timing sheet, with only 0.17 seconds between Sebastian Vettel in first and Lewis Hamilton in second place.  Jenson Button and Mark Webber were in third and fourth another half second adrift.

I say the natural order is restored but Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa came in behind the two Lotus of Romain Grosjean and Kimi Raikkonen in 5th and 6th respectively.

Pastor Maldonado came in 9th, Senna in 11th, 0.2 seconds behind.  Sergio Perez kept Bruno out of the top ten by five hundredths.
