Raikkonen fastest in 2nd practice for Bahrain GP; Vettel 2nd

It was better news on the other side of the Red Bull garage however, as Daniel Ricciardo recorded the fastest lap - albeit in very different conditions to the race and qualifying, which will take place in the evening rather than during the day.

The Red Bull driver crashed out qualifying on Saturday night as he lost it at the apex into Turn Three.

German Sebastian Vettel, victor of the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, was fourth for Ferrari ahead of defending champion Briton Lewis Hamilton in the second Mercedes, the two four-time title-winners.

Kimi Raikkonen has topped the leaderboard ahead of Ferrari teammate Sebastian Vettel in the second practice session for the Bahrain Grand Prix.

The former champions had book-ended the timesheets in the afternoon, with Ricciardo fastest and Verstappen at the bottom having failed to set a time after being sidelined by an electrical issue. "I'll try to improve the feeling and balance to put myself in the best position possible".

"It is not a long shot and I think it is in reach so I am looking forward to that so hopefully in 24 hours time we can do a pretty cool interview after the race". I think they did get better compared to previous year.

"People may say I'm pushing too hard, but I think I'm experienced enough to know what I'm doing in Q1 of qualifying", he replied when asked.

Frenchman Romain Grosjean of Haas was sixth ahead of compatriot Pierre Gasly in a Toro Rosso and Spaniard Carlos Sainz in the leading Renault.

"I got traffic on the first lap so I had to go for the second lap, and for sure there's a bit of lap time there".

The team needs a good outing after the poor showing in Melbourne.

A similar result would be a welcome gift for McLaren in this home race of sorts, and they are still competitive in the closely-matched midfield pack, so Alonso and Vandoorne will have their sights firmly focused on the top 10 on Sunday in an attempt to stave off further scrutiny after also being beaten by both works Renaults during qualifying. "And this track you can overtake at".

That is followed by another significant straight to Turn 4, which has seen plenty of action in the past as cars often make use of the wide exit to run side-by-side. "We can be a lot better than that".
