Jenson Button fastest on Friday
McLaren and Button showed strong performance on FridayAfter a wet first practice session on Friday morning all teams had to do the whole load of their setup work in the afternoon session. For Red Bull this is a huge disadvantage, since Sebastian Vettel lost practice 2 due to his accident in the morning.
The fastest man on Friday was Jenson Button with a time of 1:26.456, just 0.065 seconds in front of Nico Rosberg, who continues his impressive performance from the Shanghai weekend.
That is all Sebastian Vettel could do on Friday afternoonIt is difficult to judge the relative performance of the teams, even more so since Sebastian Vettel does not show up on the time sheets.
Unless held in wet conditions again, tomorrow's practice session will give more of an indication as to pole position contenders.
