Shanghai: Practice 2 times

2 November 2013

Chevrolet's Yvan Muller was back in charge of proceedings in second practice at the 14-turn, 2.86-mile Shanghai International Circuit on Saturday ahead of qualifying for the 11th round of the 2013 World Touring Car Championship.

However it was Thed Björk who had led the way for much of the session in the Volvo C30, despite the car not bring eligible to receive points in this weekend's competition. Björk succeeded in holding on to second spot in the timings by the time the chequered flag brought the proceedings to a halt, resisting the efforts of Muller's RML Chevrolet team mate Tom Chilton to oust him.

Once again, Mehdi Bennani's car was unable to set any lap times. He's been plagued by technical problems ever since arriving in China and he has yet to enjoy a problem-free session in Shanghai after issues on Friday with the BMW's supercharging and on Saturday with a broken driveshaft.
