Sebastian Vettel led a Red Bull 1-2 during second practice for the Indian Grand Prix.

Vettel was the only driver to set a time beneath the 1:26 mark and finished almost three tenths of a second faster than team-mate Mark Webber.

Romain Grosjean set the third fastest time, half a second down on Vettel.

Lewis Hamilton was fourth, ahead of Fernando Alonso and Nico Rosberg.

Felipe Massa finished in seventh, while Kimi Raikkonen, Sergio Perez and Jenson Button rounded out the top 10.

Daniel Ricciardo was 11th quickest, ahead of Adrian Sutil, Valtteri Bottas and Nico Hulkenberg.

Paul di Resta returned to his Force India after he sat out the first session and set the 15th fastest time.

Pastor Maldonado was 16th but his session ended with 20 minutes remaining as a wheel nut detached from his Williams as he rounded turn 14.

The lack of a wheel nut caused the right front tyre to deflate and the Venezuelan was forced to park his car at the pit entry to prevent the wheel from detaching.

Esteban Gutierrez was 17th, followed by Jean-Eric Vergne, Giedo van der Garde, Jules Bianchi, Charles Pic and Max Chilton.
