1625: This is how things pan out tomorrow: practice three from 1200 BST before qualifying at 1500 BST. Hopefully you will be around to join us from around 1130 BST for a bit of build-up. It would be a shame not to. Goodbye for now.

1615: The thoughts of Andrew Benson on the second session, complete with highlights from the first, are on the BBC Sport website.

1610: Those hoping to drag out this season's drivers title battle for at least another race will look hopefully at Fernando Alonso's final high-fuel run in his Ferrari. The 2005 and 2006 world champion was consistently faster than Vettel over the latter stages of today's second session.

1606: Right, the numbers for this weekend. Vettel will hope to repeat that practice peformance on Saturday to tie up an 11th pole of the season. Should he then convert that into a ninth win of the season, Fernando Alonso, Vettel's closest challenger today, will need to finish on the podium to deny the German a second world title. Got all that?

Chequered flag
1600: Sebastian Vettel finishes fastest in second practice for the Singapore Grand Prix.

1558: Barring an unexpected flyer from someone, Sebastian Vettel's fastest time is not going to be challenged now with a couple of minutes remaining. Some hard data being gathered though by those still out on track for their teams to pore over late into the evening.

1554: Alonso clocks an impressive first flying lap on high fuel, going half a second quicker than Vettel managed on his equivalent. How good that actually is depends on how much fuel the Spanaird has taken on though. Massa and Hamilton are also on the final, long runs with less than eight minutes left on the countdown.

BBC Sport's Andrew Benson in Singapore: "Ferrari arrive here after a difficult couple of races, but there are strong reasons to suspect that in Singapore they will be back challenging right at the front. Their relative lack of pace in Belgium and Italy was caused by an aerodynamic issue at the back of the car related to the lower downforce levels needed at Spa and Monza. But all the remaining races require higher downforce and the team are confident this will eradicate the problem. On top of that, Fernando Alonso is mighty around Singapore - his pace here last year put Sebastian Vettel under enough pressure to make a rare mistake in qualifying, which enabled the Spaniard to take pole position. And Alonso was steadfast in his defence for the entire race in holding off Vettel to take the win."

1548: Fernando Alonso's Ferrari in second is still half a second clear of Lewis Hamilton's McLaren. Will the Italian team be Red Bull's main challengers on Sunday?

1546: Sebastian Vettel has loaded his Red Bull with fuel and is set for a long run. His first lap, with all that petrol sloshing around in the back, is up in 1:53s somewhere but that is likely to drop pretty sharpish.

1544: Michael Schumacher, red gloves frantically shuttling up and down, guides his Mercedes up into sixth.

It's good news for a Brit
1540: McLaren's Lewis Hamilton finally gets a clear section of track and climbs ahead of Massa and Webber and into third behind Vettel and Alonso. The Briton is 0.741 off championship leader Vettel. Meanwhile Michael Schumacher's is fighting to pull himself up from 18th fastest.

1537: BBC 5 live commentator David Croft has received a tip-off from an anonymous fan at the track that McLaren haven't bothered to retrieve Button's car. Apparently, it is stranded where he left it at the exit of Turn 14. Seems odd that McLaren wouldn't want to go and pick up their most expensive bit of kit - after all they'll be needing it tomorrow.

1535: Ferrari's Felipe Massa is still shading third place in the standings ahead of Mark Webber's Red Bull. McLaren's Lewis Hamilton is just behind in fifth and is struggling to get a clear run to try and challenge. Vettel's lead over Alonso at the top is 0.201 seconds.

BBC Sport's Andrew Benson in Singapore: "One of the big talking points in the paddock here in Singapore is the prospect of the former McLaren and Ferrari driver Kimi Raikkonen returning to F1 with the Williams team. As we reported on Thursday, the 32-year-old Finn, who won the championship with Ferrari in 2007, has held talks with the team and is understood to be keen to come back. Williams are remaining tight-lipped but are known to be seriously considering the idea."

1529: Alonso sets a new leading time wiith a lap of 1:46.575 on the super-soft tyres. Vettel was following the Ferrari on track but backed out of his first run on the super-softs because of traffic.

1527: Sebastian Vettel takes the super-soft tyre and Fernando Alonso also has fresh rubber underneath him.

1525: Sebastien Buemi leaves plenty of Toro Rosso paintwork on the concrete wall as he catches a hefty blow coming out of the final corner. His front right wheel is clinging on by a thread, but he wrestles the car to safety and the session continues.

BBC Sport's Andrew Benson in Singapore: "You may remember that after the Italian Grand Prix two weeks ago Lewis Hamilton was tight-lipped on the subject of Michael Schumacher's, shall we say, robust defence of his position from the McLaren driver. So Singapore was the media's first proper chance to grill him on it. Hamilton said he realized holding back his true feelings was the best choice after some of the controversies he has been involved in recently. 'Just keep my mouth shut,' he said. 'It's done me a lot of good, I've been very relaxed the last couple of weeks.' It's clear, though, that he was unhappy about the situation. I asked him how hard it was to hold in his true feelings when his natural instincts were telling him something else, and he said: 'If someone punches you in the face, how hard is it not to punch them back? At school, it's hard, unless you're scared, it's hard to hold back. That's the kind of control you need to have.'"


1522: Felipe Massa also reaps the benefits of a change in compound as he secures top slot with the super-soft with a time of 1:47.120. Pirelli have just announced that they underestimated the advantage to be had with the super-soft as Senna went 1.2 seconds faster on them.

1518: Bruno Senna is the first runner to try out the super-soft tyre and immediately climbs up to seventh in his Renault. Pirelli reckon that the super-softs are worth half a second advantage over the soft tyres that all the cars have been using up until now.

1516: Jenson Button was complaining yesterday that errors had cost him a shot at the world title. This little episode will add to his case.

Twitter
Force India on Twitter: "Some issues with Paul's car. He's hopped out while we take a look. The floor will have to come off but hope to be out before end of session."

1512: Trouble for Jenson Button. His McLaren is sitting sideways at the end of a pair of long skidmarks at Turn 14. Judging from the smoke coming from his front wheels, he has locked up the front brakes. His team, rather obviously, suggest trying reverse to get back on track. He bluntly replies "not working" and grumpily climbs out of the car and hops aboard a scooter back to the pits.

1508: Hamilton asks his team how he is performing compared to the Red Bullls and is told that the third and final sector is where he can make inroads on their advantage.

1504: Hamilton is back out on the track. But he runs wide and scrapes the bottom of the car on the kerb rendering his lap worthless. He will have to regather himself and go again. He isn't the only one in the wars: Kobayashi took his Sauber dangerously close to the wall and Alguersuari's Toro Rosso launched into the air off a chicane.

Twitter
Hamilton Fox on Twitter: "Can't believe how different the track looks from dinner time now it's gone dark. From the helicopter view! Wow!"

1457: Apparently the reason Hamilton has been delayed going out is because of an adjustment of the pedals to suit driver preference. Brake to the left I'd go for. He should be out shortly.

BBC F1 pit-lane reporter Ted Kravitz: "There was an amusing incident on Friday when the teams' personnel were all waiting outside the paddock for the 1500 local time end of the overnight curfew. Toro Rosso team boss Franz Tost marched past the line of mechanics thinking it did not apply to him - only to find out that it did, and that his oversight meant he had used up one of the four 'jokers' teams are allowed to play if they need to work on their cars outside the permitted times."


1454: Vettel is already 0.760 seconds ahead of his Red Bull team-mate Mark Webber. Vettel is told by Red Bull radio to "cool his brakes" and he does this by easing up in the first sector - but he is already onimously showing some real pace as he chases that second world title on Sunday. The Ferrari pair of Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa are in third and fourth.

BBC Sport's Andrew Benson in Singapore: : "Inevitably, the fact that Sebastian Vettel can clinch the championship here has meant the reigning champion has fielded a constant stream of questions on the subject. But he is playing it cool - despite the baking temperatures and stifling humidity - and doing his best to deflect them. 'It reminds me a little bit of the situation we faced in Abu Dhabi last year, when people came up every two or three minutes giving another option that is possible,' he said. '"Out of, I don't know, 1,467 options, this could be one". The target going into the season was not to win the championship by Singapore or any other race; the target was to win the championship itself. That's why I think this race is as important as all the other ones.'"

1448: McLaren's Lewis Hamilton, who took his time to emerge from the pits in anger in the first session, and Heikki Kovalainen are the only two drivers yet to clock times.

1444: With this street circuit shifting around them all the time, kerb 13 has been removed rather than 14 confirms FIA safety delegate Charlie Whiting, the teams will be keen to get a hang of how the track is running in this session. The familiar sight of Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel at the head of the field fills our screens now as he clocks the quickest lap of the session to edge ahead of Fernando Alonso's Ferrari.

1438: Already a raft of times on the board as teams attempt to make up for the time lost to running repairs to the track earlier in the day. Mark Webber's Red Bull hits the top with a time of 1:49.422 with Sauber's Kamui Kobayashi just behind.

BBC Sport's Andrew Benson in Singapore: "I haven't seen any F1 drivers, I'm afraid, but I did see All Blacks rugby star Jonah Lomu on the corner of Oxford Street and Regent Street once."
Thanks boss

1433: Right bang on time at 2130 Singapore time second practice gets underway. Those 1500 floodlights, four times more powerful than your bog-standard stadium ones, are at full blast. Proper night racing now, lovely stuff.

Adam in Bucks, via text on 81111: "Mark Webber in my local petrol station. He lives in the village."
Any more for any more on out-of-context F1 spots?

Twitter
Team Lotus driver Heikki Kovalainen on Twitter: "Boys done great job car ready to go gonna buy them a drink later, had to change quite a lot due to fire on the front axle..."

1424: The jiggery-pokery with the circuit set-up continues. The FIA has just announced that the kerb on the apex of Turn 14 is to be removed ahead of second practice.

A lucky German pig
A picture of a pig probably very like Vettel's (pics.yakohl.com)
BBC F1 pit-lane reporter Lee McKenzie: "Sebastian Vettel could claim his second world title here this weekend and he has a new lucky charm alongside him. In Germany a lucky pig is often given as a gift and that is what the Red Bull driver has received from his father Norbert. Despite my concern at it being a real pig, Sebastian reassured me it was in fact a little, bronze-coloured model pig. You put a coin in its back and it requires no looking after. This is quite common in Germany, apparently.".

1417: And it seems that Sebastian Vettel, not content with a lead of 112-point lead and a pretty swift Red Bull at his disposal to try and tie up the world title this weekend, has got another bit of kit to help him.

BBC Sport's Andrew Benson in Singapore: "The loose kerbs that led to two stoppages of first practice were apparently, I'm told by race officials, being caused by the inserts laid into the track to which the kerbs are bolted coming loose. The kerbs are the same ones that have been used here since the inaugural race in 2008. There is nothing governing body the FIA can do about it before the second session, so the problems could recur. Officials admit that they have to solve the issue before Saturday, so say they will be doing some head-scratching on the subject after second practice."

1412: Back to matters in Singapore and Andrew Benson has been doing some digging on the cause of the delays in the first session.

1411: It seems that Lewis Hamilton has already been putting the hard yards in ahead of his potential golfing showdown with Sebastian Vettel (for those late the party, check back between 1219 and 1222). My very own dad has been told that Hamilton was out honing his swing on a course near his Hertfordshire home last week. So have you caught Ross Brawn in a Tesco near Brackley, or seen Mark Webber taking in some heavy rock at the Milton Keynes Bowl? Your sighting of famous F1 people in unexpected locations to us on the details above.

1400: We are back and I have some hot, okay lukewarm, F1 gossip from an unlikely source.

1255: Before I get stuck into some sandwiches, just to let you know that Andrew Benson's report on that first session has made its way safely back to us from Singapore and is up on the site. Right, that really is it from me for me now. Cheddar and pickle awaits.

1249: Rightio. That was short, but pretty sweet I reckon. A bit of ding-dong between Hamilton and Vettel packed into a hour-long session and an intriguing pantomine sideshow thanks to some shoddy track repairs. The second installment begins at 1430 BST and I'll be back with you about 30 minutes before then. See you then.

Twitter
Ferrari on Twitter: "The delayed start and some other problems made this session very difficult and even more inconclusive than usual. Now we need to revise FP2 programme to see how we can recover the time lost in the first session."

Text in your views on 81111 (UK)
Mark Salmon of the Construction Fixings Association via text: "Fixing to Tarmac is tricky as it is a relatively soft "plastic" material unlike concrete which is much harder."

BBC Radio 5 live commentator David Croft: Could we see a classic battle between Hamilton and Vettel this weekend?

It's good news for a Brit
Chequered flag
1234: But no-one can topple Hamilton as second-placed Vettel fails to shut the gap. He is a decent 0.406 behind the Briton with Mark Webber a further second or so back in third. Impressive stuff for a revved-up Hamilton.

1231: Most of the drivers head back out, but Hamilton is not amongst them as a mix-up with the tyres mean he is confined to the McLaren pits for the small amount of remaining time in this session.

Twitter
Andy Bottomley on Twitter: "That'll 'curb' their enthusiasm! Eh? Eh?."

1228: Felipe Massa went over that loose kerb and got a little twitchy, all in all the race organisers will not be enjoying how today has gone so far with the delayed start to this session as well. An unfortunate shot of FIA president Jean Todt pressing the flesh in the pit lane coincides with the drivers converging back on the pits.

1225: Hang on...a cameo appearance from an unwanted intruder on track. A bolt that should be holding the kerb together is instead poking its head up, threatening to puncture the tyre of anyone running wide. The red flags come out and the drivers head back to the pits.

1222: Whatever the outcome of a potential battle on the roads of Germany, this little Hamilton and Vettel duel is shaping up nicely. Vettel strikes back before Hamilton siezes the lead again.

BBC Sport's Andrew Benson in Singapore: "Lewis Hamilton - like all Sebastian Vettel's rivals - has resigned himself to the fact that the battle for the title is over, but Hamilton is still looking to beat Vettel in as much as he can for the rest of the season. And not just on the race track, either. Hamilton revealed he had met Vettel on the flight to Singapore and he couldn't resist offering him a challenge: 'I asked him if he played golf, because I would happily play golf with him. I don't know what else he does. Maybe we should meet up on the autobahn in the same car. Then we'll see how it goes.'"

1219: Hamilton moves to the top of the standings with a pacey 1:49.515 as Ferrari's Fernando Alonso is finally back out on track after hhis team complete some aerodynamic work on his car.

1216: Hamilton puts in his first timed lap and plonks himself in at fourth in the hit parade with a 1:51.961. Vettel's fellow Red Bull Mark Webber joins him at the top of the standings in second.

1214: Sebastian Vettel moves ahead of Jenson Button at the front of the field with a time of 1:50.656 before breaching the 1:50 barrier to extend his advantage to more than a second.

1212: Time is ticking for Lewis Hamilton who is yet to set a time and has completed just four laps. The McLaren pit crew are having a little tweak of his car according to BBC pit-lane reporter Ted Kravitz. Less than 20 minutes left.

Twitter
Lotus team principal Mike Gascoyne on Twitter: "Front brakes were running hot on Heikkis car so when he went straight on overheated and caught fire."

1208: With 25 minutes left to go the drivers head back out onto the circuit. Kovalainen's team-mate Jarno Trulli is one of those out there pushing it. Another manual refresh might be necessary to turn a rogue bit of coding into a nice video of Kovalainen talking us through his 2010 fire-fighting. Thanks people.

1203:
Lotus Racing's Heikki Kovalainen

Watch Kovalainen's 2010 fire

And now the red flags are out as Heikki Kovalainen's Lotus catches fires. Just like last year at this track when the Finn had to douse the flames himself.

1158: Heads are shaking on the Red Bull pitwall as part of Mark Webber's front wing are scattered across the track. The Australian got far too close to Timo Glock, trying to squeeze through a gap that was never really there. "I don't know what happened," Glock tells his team. Yellow flags unfurled.

1153: As the times tumble and Felipe Massa takes top spot, word reaches us that Jenson Button is suffering from a bit of chafing. McLaren are having a look at his seat to try and solve it, but I reckon a keen triathlete like the 2009 champion should be used to such problems.

Twitter
James Bolton on Twitter: "Singapore looks fantastic as the sun goes down and the massive lights come to the fore."

1148: Michael Schumacher, in truculent form in Monza, tops the timing charts with a time of 1:55.827, Bruno Senna and Vitaly Petrov just behind.

1146: Nico Rosberg sets the first time of the session and if you could hit a little manual refresh for me then you'll lose the repetition of Ted Kravitz's words on Red Bull below. Interesting stuff though it was, once is probably enough.

BBC F1 pit-lane reporter Ted Kravitz: "Red Bull's mechanics have spent the season trying to hide the intricacies of the car's design from prying eyes, but one critical part of the car is secret no longer. Marshals recovering Mark Webber's crashed car at the Italian Grand Prix lifted it up into the air and left it hanging there while they waited for a recovery truck to take it back to the pits. The floor and new diffuser were filmed by a fan, and his video has become required viewing for aerodynamicists from the other teams. It shows several things: Red Bull's clever treatment of the floor around the rear wheels - a crucial area in controlling air from the exhausts and air coming off and around the rear tyres. There's the location and design of the hole for the starter motor, which all teams integrate into their diffuser as well as the design of the guide vanes in the diffuser itself. But it also shows a small aerofoil on the upper edge of the car's diffuser. A new part in Italy is an extension around the sides, which is instrumental in the RB7 achieving its impressive high speed downforce. I am told chief technical officer Adrian Newey is so cross about the video that he is refusing to watch it!"


1135: Timo Glock locks up the brakes of his Virgin but steers the skid away from the walls and escapes undamaged.

Pastor Maldonado sailing with the BBC
BBC F1 pit-lane reporter Lee McKenzie: "After Monza I went to Venezuela to make a film with Williams driver Pastor Maldonado, who is incredibly famous and has real star status in the capital Caracas and his hometown of Maracay. Venezuela is seen by some as a troubled country, but I was struck by its beauty, especially in Canaima National Park, where we filmed at the stunning waterfalls. Maldonado and I walked under a waterfall, where he lost his footing, but the good news was that he escaped unhurt! Although Maldonado is widely expected to stay at Williams in 2012 - his presence is linked to the team's sponsorship deal with Venezuela's state oil company - he says nothing is signed for next season but he is very keen to stay on. He described Williams as his 'family'. The film will be broadcast in the run-up to qualifying on BBC One on Saturday."

1130: Charlie Whiting is en route to the stewards to request shortening this first session to an hour according to BBC pit-lane reporter Ted Kravitz.... And they have duly given him the nod to knock off 30 minutes as Sebastien Buemi leads out the early runners.

1128: Felipe Massa slips on his balaclava, Sebastian Vettel is sporting a brand new helmet design, he gets a new one after every race victory apparently, and we look like we are going to be underway in a couple of minutes.

BBC Sport's Andrew Benson in Singapore: "The track workers have now removed the loose kerbs at Turns Three and 14 which caused the 30-minute delay and the drivers have been told they can now run right up to the concrete wall there if they want to. My colleagues in the media centre and I were speculating about who would be the first driver to hit it. Williams's Pastor Maldonado got the vote. What do you think?"

1120: A threat of some sport breaking out as a dispute between two photographers outside the McLaren garage briefly looks like escalating into a boxing/ tripod jousting match. Things look to be simmering down as the cameras pan away though...

Renault technical director James Allison: "When the team did the circuit walk yesterday, it was apparent that some of these kerbs were loose and they reported it to the FIA then. If we lose half an hour at the front end of the day, it's a nuisance, but more importantly, it depends on what the knock-on effect the delay has to the rest of the day's schedule."

1114: That relevant FIA regulation, mentioned by BBC F1 presenter Jake Humphrey below, reads in full: "The interval between the first and second free practice sessions, in addition to the interval between the third free practice session and the qualifying practice session, may never be less than two hours." Not much wiggle room there, perhaps a shortened session might keep us on schedule?

Force India driver Paul di Resta: "At the exit of Turn 3 and Turn 14, there are kerbs that get put in artificially for event and I think the Porsches in the support race were using it quite hard and the kerbs have obviously come up. Really, we're unclear when we're going to run but there's not much you can do. It's the same for everybody. For me, it's losing precious track time on my first time here."

Twitter
Jake Humphrey on Twitter: "31.5 of the sporting regs means there cannot be less than two hours between the sessions."

1104: FIA safety delegate Charlie Whiting is on the tarmac and inspecting the kerbs and a short time later a team jump out of the back of a truck and start to take up some of the red and white panels. I'm leaning towards an hour's delay at this rate.

1101: The damage is to turns 10, 14 and 15, with some oil from a support race and a loose drain cover causing the difficulties according to BBC Sport's pit-lane reporter Ted Kravitz. And there is some speculation swirling around that it may be actually an extra hour before we get underway.

1055: Scrap that. Breaking news from Singapore is that track repairs have put first practice back 30 minutes. 1130 BST. At ease.

1051: First practice is less than nine minutes away, with the second session getting going at 1430 BST. So with the drivers' internal clocks all inverted, and conditions switching from bright Italian sunshine to inky Far Eastern darkness - what else could we do with turning upside down for one race a year? Maybe the qualifying positions? Get in touch via text on 81111 if you are in the UK or via Twitter on hashtag #BBCF1 wherever you are.

BBC Sport's Andrew Benson in Singapore: "The drivers say the combination of heat, humidity, artificial lighting, bumpy track and the season's longest race make the Singapore Grand Prix probably the toughest event of the year. When it comes to fitness, there is always some good-natured banter between the drivers - who all like to think they are in better shape than their rivals - and here Jenson Button took the opportunity to bait Webber about an article in F1 Racing magazine describing his ride up a famous Tour de France mountain stage with four-time world champion Alain Prost. 'After the race,' Button said, 'it's the most tired the drivers will probably look all year - apart from Mark, riding up Alpe d'Huez with some 55-year-old guy who beat him.'"."

1043: If Spa is almost sepia-tinged with history and Monaco fairly reeks of glamour, then glossy, floodlit Singapore has the feels like racing into the middle of the 21st century. Since its introduction into the calendar in 2008 it has been posing a tough test for the drivers as Mark Webber has been explaining in his BBC Sport column.

1039: Apparently morning kippers at three or four in the afternoon, help keep your cortisone and melatonin in check and jet lag at bay, ensuring maximum alertness and performance. Sounds good. I'm going to stay on European time as well, what with being in Europe and all.

BBC Sport's Andrew Benson in Singapore: "Good morning from Singapore - and if you think I've got my time zones wrong, think again. Practice may not start here until 6pm local time, but almost without exception the entire F1 community stays on European time - which is six or seven hours behind the south-east Asian city state. So it's not yet lunchtime in our strange parallel world here. As Ferrari's Fernando Alonso says: '"You go to sleep very late, you wake up at lunchtime, you race at night. It gives you a different view of the race - more adrenalin." It sounds as if it might be unsettling, but in fact it's just one of many unique aspects that makes this one of the best weekends on the calendar. "It's a wonderful race," says Alonso, who has won two of the three grands prix here. "And nearly everyone agrees."

1034: Third place in Sunday's race could be enough for Vettel clinch his second world title, but despite the generous words of Fernando Alonso and Lewis Hamilton yesterday, I suspect they would love nothing better than to keep the Red Bull team carting that bubbly around the world unopened for as long as possible.

1030: With Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel streets and streets ahead of everyone else, it may be all but over in the drivers' standings, but, as McLaren's Jenson Button points out , there is still time to get in a few pot-shots at the champion elect, starting with today's two practice sessions through the streets of Marina Bay in Singapore.
