Today, in Free Practice 2...

Today in Shanghai, during the second Free Practice session for the 2015 Chines GP...

A man ran across the track.

Kimi had problems with brakes,

Massa crashed, just a little,

Vettel found the limit of grip.

Mercedes were back in dominant form.

Check out the awesome interactive graphic from Giroveloce.it.   Y is time, X is lap,  you can deselect drivers by clicking on their name at the bottom.

While the author warns tire compound data may not be entirely correct (the F1 app, as usual, did not work properly)  you can get a sense of who managed to to do long runs and their relative pace.
Keep in mind there were interruptions due to the loony tunes crossing the track and Massa and Kvyat going off.

So Hamilton was able to to an 8 lap stint on options with a 1 second delta while Rosberg did 13 laps on primes with the same delta, start to finish.

In the Ferrari camp, looks like Vettel was not able to complete any long runs while Raikkonen was able to do 19 laps on primes.
