Mark Webber fastest on Friday


Barcelona - Practice 2

Can Vettel manage to be on pole position for
the sixth time in a row on Saturday?

Webber set the fastest time at the Circuit de Catalunya on Friday. Lewis Hamilton managed to get within 0.039 seconds of the Austrailian with world champion Sebastian Vettel another 0.327 seconds behind. The last one within one second was Jenson Button, 0.718 seconds adrift. This, once again, promises a battle between Red Bull and McLaren for the first two rows of the grid with slight advantages for the Austrian team.
