At FP2 Red Bull and Ferrari were very close to Mercedes in term of the best laps. Anyway it was only FP2, I believe that on race pace Mercedes will be able to pull a few tenth more per lap. Anyway here in Malaysia there are two problems for Mercedes. First being a track with many high speed corners will emphize aerodynamics. Red Bull RB10 has a good level of downforce and seemingly Ferrari has too. Second with the heat of Sepang many problems will arise. I am not only speaking about engine's cooling but tyre degradation, Mercedes's achilles heel at the last couple of years. In FP2 Red Bull looked to handle it better. Anyway with mixed weather predicted anything could happen this weekend, so it will be interesting.
