No champions crowned today, but genuinely pleased to see Caterham consolidate Petrov's pace from yesterday. Given the gap from last year, even low fuel and soft tyres wouldn't sandbag the readings of this alone, so good to see them graduate to mid pack this season hopefully, if only as dividends for Kovalinen's development efforts over the last 2 seasons

09:40 Alonso is back out and goes fastest with a 1m23.447s, beating Grosjean by three tenths.
09:40 Vettel does another practice pitstop.
09:40 Alonso's lap is within 0.2s of the time that put Grosjean on top yesterday.
09:41 Alonso is running on hard tyres, and does a 1m23.5s next time around.
09:42 And the press room tours start. Good morning tourists.
09:42 Vettel does another practice pitstop. Like McLaren and Toro Rosso, Red Bull has done quite a lot of running so far without going for flying laps yet.
09:43 Alonso's third lap on this set of hard tyres is a 1m23.9s.
09:43 Does that suggest the rubber has a two-lap peak then a 0.4s drop-off?
09:44 Now a 1m24.1s for the consistent Ferrari.
09:44 As Vettel's latest practice pitstop sees him head out again on softs.
09:46 Up to 1m24.9s for Alonso that time around, but the delay could have been traffic.
09:47 The Ferrari is now the only car on the track.
