Spanish Grand Prix Friday Analysis

First practice in Barcelona was close between the teams but Red Bulls were untouchable in the Second one as Sebastian Vettel got bellow the 1.20's and no could come close within half a second to the Red Bull's but Sebastian Vettel Said he don't read anything from friday times :"We've got a few changes on our car, but I don't think anything as significant perhaps some of the other teams have. There's a little bit everywhere on ours and I think we've proved today that our changes work. I think the lap times are irrelevant from a Friday. It's good to be fast, but I think the McLarens are quick here - I don't think they were pushing hard this afternoon and I think it will be much closer tomorrow."
Ferrari looked competitive with thier runs and a decision will be made weather to run the F-DUCT for Qualifying and the race tonight.One thing was clear today that Mercedes made a step forward at least with Micheal Shumacher who was third in both practices "Today I felt much more comfortable in the car and feel that it is behaving more consistently. In my view, our upgrade is a step forward but we have to wait and see how big the step is as the other teams have obviously improved as well. Now we have to deeply analyse the data to get a better overview on the actual situation and as usual after the Friday practice sessions, it is difficult to estimate where you actually are in comparison to our competitors. We will only have the real picture after qualifying tomorrow."

Mclaren also looked quick today and the drivers said they could have got more from the car with the soft tyres, but the times were good.
The times in Q3 tomorrow will be very tight with Renault not far behind the top teams.
Not very much changed in the midfield but it's seen that Williams are struggling as the new team Lotus was not far behind them with less than a second between Nico Hulkenberg and Jarno Trulli and the updates on the Lotus was a good step forward as Mike Gascoyne, Lotus chief technical officer said “Basically it was a good day’s work. The drivers have been very happy with the updates and we’ve been making adjustment to the improvements on the cars throughout the day to help us fine tune the updates. There’s a fair bit more time to come from the new package, and everyone in the team has worked very hard to get us to this point, so it’s great to hear such positive feedback from the drivers. Now we’re looking forward to building on this performance tomorrow and seeing where we are in qualifying.”. Meanwhile Virgin hit troubles with thier updated VR-01 that Timo Glock drived
