The second day of testing in Barcelona saw Lewis Hamilton complete an epic 121 laps, some of which he spent pseudo-battling with Vettel.  Hulkenberg, Perez and Ricciardo all posted very quick times, although the Toro Rosso had issues yet again with the car coming to a halt at the exit of the pit lane.

Ferrari are still either sand-bagging or just not very confident about their 2012 car whereas there seems to be an air buoyancy around the Williams team – sure we can’t expect podiums, but Senna seemed happy yesterday and their test driver Bottas was similarly upbeat today, so maybe come Melbourne, Frank will have something to smile about.

Here’s a gallery of images from the on-track action today, provided by Octane Photos (@OctanePhotos on Twitter).  One thing’s for sure, when the cars are travelling at speed on track, the ‘step’ noses don’t really figure, they all still look fast.
