How did his pace compare to JB and SV?
Jenson was the fastest on the long runs, follow by Massa Alonso and Vettel, but it was very close.
The car is much better than in Japan, not a match for RB over one lap, but competitive over a long run. Wonder why Hamilton and ALonso couldn't match their FP1 times in FP2 on the soft. Was it down to the more fuel or did the track just get slower?
Alonso was about to start his run with the supersoft when Perez stopped his car, so Fernando aborted that run. Later on he only improved 0.3 because of the traffic. He made a third try with the supersoft and he made his best FP2 time, but of course the tyre had a few laps by then.
It is not looking bad for the race, where the DDRS won't make such a difference. Also, it looks like there won't be a Sauber, Lotus or Williams in front of him tomorrow, but of course it is only friday.
