MacLarren looks good, but I don't think many where looking for fast lap times.

However, mercedes dominates and Red bull follows (they will show their pace later, for sure) But I wouldn't count out the maclarrens this weekend.

where's ferrari? Working on the set-up?

Red Bull are just sand bagging as they always do. The 1st and 2nd practice rounds, are'nt much to go on. The teams with the quickest cars, will show up on the Saturday practice. We all know that Red Bull are fast in quali. It is nice to see Maclaren up the front as always, but slip down the grid on qualifying

As much as I appreciate that practice is practice, and racing is racing...

..you can't help but wonder how some drivers/riders are able to be fast from the beginning, whereas others take time to get up to speed over a race weekend.

I can't see Schumi being third on Sunday afternoon but the fact he can go straight out and set quick times points to his experience and the fact he can drive a car without 'THE' perfect setup.

james. practice means NOTHING. what if schumi was running on vapours, and nico was running a full tank??? that would make nico 2 secs faster, if he was on vapours. NOBODY knows what configuration the car is in, what tyres are being used, what suspension settings are being used, etc, etc, etc. quali will be the first true comparison.

Good work by Kaurn Chandhok, faster than either Virgin. Not sure about Senna being 'rested', I get the feeling he is not impressing as much as his teammate and might be out of F1 sooner rather than later.
