What an extraordinary Friday Practice…


So the things have now come to a reality that the order on the Sunday’s twilight race will be really be somewhat different, though we have another 24 hours to go for the red lights to go…

We had a pleasant surprise in Williams F1 when Rosberg went on to top both the time sheets today. Must be Sir Frank has his work less cut out after his performance today. Nico if he can continue this for another two days the whole paddock is gonna worry for sure.

Ofcourse not to be left behind Nakajima too followed suit and made it up just behind Nico in the first session. The main point could be read into the fact the early gainers here were Toyota as a the machine and Williams as the car.

As we already saw that BrawnGP would be underdogs turned favorites this weekend they were also pretty fast and were in the top five bracket both the times. Once it was Button and then it was Barichello. Now this underdogs would be Williams going by today’s times and may be favourites too.

We can probably spell it out by tomorrow after noon as soon as the Qualifying is over when we get to know the car weights and the load of fuel.

We have reasons to celebrate with Force India too really up on the pace at 9th and 13th respectively. A good sign that Mallya would be relieved to see and be smiling ear to ear. The hard work is paying off for the lower rung teams and the fact is that this year could be sign of things to come and this would in all probability make F1 more competitive and dynamic on the track and ofcourse spectator friendly.

As for the other teams Ferrari would tread into the top ten and then the Red Bull too were good enough for the Williams and Brawns.

Then there is BMW and McLaren still struggling to keep the car under control. We need to see if there could be a miracle to set the things in order for these two teams for tomorrow at the Qualifying.

STR too are lacking in pace with a new car in the garage.

As reported earlier the bets are on Brawn GP to win the races, could that be history with a new rung team winning in its first ever GP. A sure shot possibility exists between now and tomorrow.

One thing for sure Nico would have second thoughts on his going from Williams.

Catch up after the qualifying and lets see how the grid looks like tomorrow for the twilight race at Albert Park, Melbourne.
