Have a feeling the Ferraris will be closer to the Red Bull high downforce speed..
it was a big gap though

Also, Rosberg thinks it will be his best chance to get a podium

It only means that none of them are new i.e. all have been used for at least one weekend. But all the engines are usually designed to run for slightly under three race weekends so they probably have it all figured out.

Expect Ferrari to use the old ones on Fridays (so a blow up or two in FP1 and FP2 might be on the cards) and keep the relatively fresh ones for Saturday and Sunday.

Practice Two- Sutil had a breakdown- Force India are almost one second behind Williams, and half a second behind BMW Sauber, and more than 3 seconds behind the red bulls who are leading the pack.
Looks like Force India's moments of glory are firmly in the past. Looks almost certain that Williams will overtake them, gap to Sauber is too high for Sauber to overcome.
Sutil is a very good wet weather driver.With wet weather being forecast, that may be Force India's only hope.

The RedBull is about .9 secs faster then the McLaren based on ultimate lap time analysis. Vettel in particlar is over .4 secs faster then Alonso and Webber.
Unless the rains intervene, I see this as a Redbull whitewash.

Ultimate laps - An ultimate lap is a drivers’ best three sector times added together.
