Sao Paulo - Saturday practice 2

Dario Franchitti improved his Saturday practice time to 1:22.2611s in the second session, 0.0816s ahead of Will Power; but the hour was frustratingly punctuated by red flags.
Dario Franchitti set the fastest time in practice in Brazil ahead of Will Power, but the session was a very stop-start affair with a number of lengthy red flags stopping anyone hoping for extended running on the warmer, dryer street circuit in Sao Paulo.

With today's qualifying groups 1 and 2 being set according to the combined practice session times, Franchitti and Power will now start in separate sessions. Franchitti gets the call of whether his group will go first or second in round 1.
