2 fellow countrymen in action today, a rare occurence in F1. Frijns did rather well I think, would have been nice if he could have beaten Paffett's time but still a fairly decent result I would think. He's on schedule to drive for RBR thursday so it'll be interesting how that goes after his scathing remarks about RBR's young driver programme...might get a little awkward.

Not sure about Giedo, time doesn't look that good. The team is clearly struggling in this desperate attempt to catch Marussia for 10th in the constructors so that surely doesn't help I guess...Ironically Giedo has a better chance at a raceseat if the team strikes out and therefore needs his bag of coins.

Gary Paffett (31) - young driver?

He does make a good benchmark though as a very experienced McLaren test driver (and DTM champion) so, on the face of it, if Kevin Magnussen is 0.8sec quicker, that is very impressive
