Status: Stopped
10:44 And that, it seems, was that for Friday practice. We'll be back with you tomorrow for FP3 and qualifying - so join us again then! Bye for now.
10:35
 
10:33
 
10:31 No changes expected, meaning Hamilton will end this session on top, from Bottas and Verstappen.
10:30 And that's the end of FP2. Last laps are coming in now...
10:29 "The tyres are pretty consistent", Magnussen says, happy with the medium compound it seems.
10:28 Just Latifi, Grosjean, Sainz and Hamilton are in the pits, as it stands.
10:27 A bit of a lock-up for Vettel into turn 10, leading him to pit having snatched at the front. He does the same coming in to stop.
10:23 Ah, Grosjean exited Turn 10 and was met with a bit of an intermittently-firing engine.
10:22 Grosjean pulls into the pits, citing something wrong with the power unit.
10:21 Perez currently fastest in the speed trap, 342km/h - which is 212mph for those who prefer imperial. If you're a scientist and prefer SI units, that's 94.8 m/s.
10:19
 
10:18 There's a lot of gravel on the exit of turn 12, and might require a quick sweep. Bottas appears to be the culprit, kicking up kitty litter onto the track.
10:17 "Both axles zero grip, it's like driving on ice", Russell reports. He's still having a miserable time on those C1 tyres.
10:15 15 minutes remain of FP2.
10:15
 
10:14 A replay of a sticky front-left for Stroll in the pits there. You'd rather have that in practice than in, say, the race.
10:12 A full gamut of tyre compounds on the road now. It's not quite the old Pirelli tyre rainbow, when you had orange superhards and pink ultrasofts, but it's less confusing.
10:09 You can see a little band of wear on Hamilton's right rear, as he circulates on medium tyres amid a race run.
