Muller leads damp second practice

The championship leader set his quickest time on his last lap of the half-hour session as the circuit dried.

Three more SEATs and the two BMWs filled out the top 10, while Stefano D'Aste recovered from his crash this morning to set the best time of the independent runners in 11th place.
