F1 Live says that Massa did the fastest lap on the track until now with 1:19:981 the morning before FP1 and FP2.
Is that true? With Kimi just a tenth slower in second.

It's not. The smallest is zero... remember Jerez 1997... three cars in the SAME time on qualification +0.000

It's true it is just a FP session... but if you look at the FP times (FP1 and FP2) on the previous races you will see they are QUITE related with the final result.
But this (annoying) circuit may give some room for surprises. I think Renault is going to try an alternative strategy, because it is so hard to overtake, they are not going to be syncronized with the rest of the teams in pit stop, so they can catch some extra places. So they start light, and stop first... and then... cross the fingers.
Kimi's car look a little bit nervous, but not too much. I think Massa will do better this time. And certainly Hamilton has the first chance for winning (the car improved from FP1 to FP2) , but considering the characterictics of the circuit, Ferrari may try to win by strategic decisions. Here more than in any other circuit strategies can play a huge role.
McLaren's tires were quite destroyed... even the hard ones.

Yeah..ofcourse Mclaren are so quick..especially at s2. But I still think, it is just a FP session..

Yes..Renault are more light..they want to play with strategy planning.
For ferrari duo..as usual, Massa are more stronger than Kimi during FP and Qualy. But kimi, is more competitive than massa when the race day. Ferrari with their normal standard, is the best car for long run runner.

I say now the same I said before. There are only FP (1 and 2), look times are stupid!!! Driver must get a good setup. I'm sure Piquet will not get second place on q3, and Alonso will not get 4th. Ferrari'w will be hard and Bmw and toyota will fight with Alonso (I hope Piquet fight too).

Don't be child. Wait to tomorrow and enjoy with any car on track

Looks like Renault decided to empty their fuel tanks at the end. Well, McLaren seems to be the favorite here, but Ferrari isn't so lost either when compared to Hockenheim. Ferrari's advantage will probably be in race pace.

Are you having a laugh? Discrimination, i'm sorry but actually its a) only meant to be used by the UK and b) you clearly have no idea what the word discrimination means.
