Really surprised to see the two Mercedes GP car's that high up in the order. Looks like their new updates are working well for them. Webber was fairly quiet in FP2, which means RBR are either supremely confident and not showing their hand, or perhaps not having the best of weekends. Either way the McLaren's are looking mighty quick, should be a good qualifying tomorrow.

@Ricky - The Mercedes power-plant has long been recognised as the most powerful engine in F1, whether it's sitting in a car good enough to outrun one of Newey's masterpieces is another story all together...

duke, there may be some improvement from merc. but watching the live commentary, the merc times were all set on three lap runs, an out lap, one fast lap, and an in lap. granted there were others using the same strategy, but the point is, ONE lap does not win a race!
