The 27-year-old McLaren driver, who is yet to win a Grand Prix this year, clocked a time of 1min 15.259 seconds in the second session.

Hamilton was followed by Spaniard Fernando Alonso and his Brazilian team-mate Felipe Massa to hand a boost to Ferrari who are hoping to be at par in pace with their competitors in Montreal. The signs on Friday looked good for the prancing horse.

Defending world champions Sebastian Vettel was fourth after having finished the opening session in second.

Force India also had reason to cheer as Paul di Resta set the fifth fastest time after having been 11th in the first practice.

Sauber's kamui Kobayashi was sixth ahead of Mercedes' Michael Schumacher and Force India's Nico Hulkenberg.

McLaren's Jenson Button and Mercedes' Nico Rosberg rounded off the top 10.
