For a change Mclarens look like they are trying their best to hold Redbulls by its horns.

Top positions, no changes being seen in the present practice session.

1 - 2 Mclarens
3 - 4 Redbulls
5 - 6 Mercedes
7 - 8 Renault


Ferrari seems to have lost out a bit, Force India seems to fade away a bit.

^^ Ferrari usually runs on the race trim on a Friday & Redbulls usually are on the race trim as well on a Friday.

EDIT: Massa has been clearly struggling to keep his F10 on track!

I doubt (rather hope) if they have faded away; they have got a new f duct, front wing and also additions to engine cover but the updates seem to be not working in the faster part of the track (for example turn 8) as per sutils explaination in FP1 before he crashed i hope he will be in top 10 in the Q3

I doubt if Red Bull are showing their true hand. This circuit is so well suited to them that I can't see any reason why they'd be slower.

+1 to that; but if their f duct intake from the underside may have hampered their flow towards diffuser (it may be the cause if they are slower) purely a guess

looks pretty good though

But as autosport suggest they might not even use it

Last Practice Results :
1) Button
2) Red Bull 1
3) Red Bull 2
4) Hamilton
5) Alonso
6) Merc1
7) Merc 2.

I hope I have got the order right.

The interesting point here is :- Red Bulls may not have a clean sweep this time.
Mclaren and Ferrari (Alonso) should be in TOP 3.

Vettel tops final practice. Mclarens look quick as well. Can Lewis split the Redbulls?

Disappointed with Ferrari's. Not even 5 or 6 ? too bad.
Surprised with Renault's performance !

Its becoming RedBulls Vs Mclaren now.

What a fun filled exciting race

Finally the Redbulls cracked on their own. and they were holded by their horns by the Mclaren's.

What a drive Hamilton had. he was phenomenol.

Nice to see Schumi come close to Webber on the last few laps.

All in all a good race.

Pavan - Exciting race. yes it was. But hamilton's drive was far from phenomenol. I beg to disagree. This was Jenson's race had it not been for team orders. He preserved his car extremely well to push Lewis in the end but after the overtaking attempt I am sure team orders came into play. Only that can explain Jenson's backing off.

PS: What exactly does holded mean? Kindly explain.

It was getting boring... some teams are way better than the others: first red bulls together, then mclarens together. So what happens? You bet - teammates start attacking each other

Webber/Vettel: Bit of stupidity from Vettel. IIRC Webber has been in this kind of teammate tangle a few years back. He doesn't like being overtaken by faster teammates!
Hamilton/Button: Button was asked to pull back - because Hamilton would be stupid enough to pull a Vettel move.
Alonso/Petrov: Petrov is surely making an impression, and I hope he gets a good car next year. Too bad he got a flat at the end of it.
Ferraris are still disappointing. Doesn't look like their year.

@vikram: I thunk it means held.

It wasn't Vettel. Webber was not anymore up to the pace of Vettel and therefore Vettel had all the rights to overtake. He was considerably faster and Webber made a crucial mistake.
