Lewis Hamilton looked strong again in second free practice for the Malaysian Grand Prix. After setting the pace in the day’s opening session, the McLaren driver was 0.361 seconds faster than second-placed Michael Schumacher.

Hamilton's teammate Jenson Button nearly made it a 1-2 for McLaren, ending up just two thousandths of a second behind Schumacher.

Nico Rosberg backed up Mercedes' pace with the fourth fastest time, ahead of an impressive Daniel Ricciardo in fifth for Toro Rosso. Fernando Alonso took sixth for Ferrari.

Red Bull had a very quiet session, with Mark Webber the best of their drivers in seventh, ahead of the French duo of Jean-Eric Vergne and Romain Grosjean. Sebastian Vettel was tenth in his Red Bull.

Pastor Maldonado was 11th for Williams, ahead of Force India‘s Nico Hulkenberg. His teammate Paul di Resta was just behind, but had a tricky session with a couple of offs at Turns 15 and then 6. Kimi Raikkonen was 15th, one and a half seconds off the pace, while Felipe Massa was one place further back – albeit a further half a second behind.
