F1 » Singapore Grand Prix - Friday free practice (combined)


Red Bull Racing hint that the stricter FIA flexi-wing tests have done nothing to slow the Adrian Newey-designed RB6 down, as Sebastian Vettel blitzes Singapore's opening practice day - and team-mate Mark Webber backs him up in second

The McLarens (both) and Fernando's Ferrari seem to be over 1 sec off the pace of the RBR's in practice, with Jenson, Alonso and Lewis seperated by a fraction of a second. Great.
If Vettel gets pole again, he'll try a Hockenheim manaouver by trying to block whoever is in second on the grid, and will once again give up half a dozen places. Great.
If the grid, stays as it is in qualifying, there's a good chance of Barrichello shunting Lewis at the start, or Lewis trying a Monza overtaking manouever on Fernando and once again finishing on the pavement. Great.

In any case. 1.2secs off the pace is a fairy tale. This is only a practice session (we hope).

Times don't that much in practice but if I were Nick Heidfeld or Jerome d'Ambrosio (Crash won't let me spell his name correctly), I'd be feeling pretty pleased.

FA was faster on the hard tyre then JB on the soft's.
The time set Twenty minutes before the end by FA was still good.
FA was the only man who looked capable of threatening SV.
The mclaren didn't manage to slow the bulls and reds.
Rob have seen the front wing of the bulls flexing again.

No, I have not. Another site is discussing. I am fine with the current test and if ANYONES wing is scraping the ground. Good for them. Red,McL and Red Bull have all adjusted their stuff to be legal. It seems that the bull is just the best car out there. The same as it was last year.

The Bulls should have an advantage on this track. Their setup appears to work really well on tight bumpy circuts. I am just glad they have come of-age after the years of crap cars. Makes for a most interesting season and hope they keep it up next season. Good luck to all driver and teams and hope us fans receive a good race. Adios
