Webber quickest between showers
Red Bull's Mark Webber hit the front as the Formula 1 field managed a few minutes of dry running in the second free practice session for the Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps. Only the two Mercedes had been able to squeeze in flying laps on slicks in first practice before the rain arrived, and the track was damp again when the afternoon session got underway. Conditions steadily improved, with the two Red Bulls, Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button all taking turns at the front before Webber set the 2m00.964s that would stand at the best intermediate tyre lap of the session.
