A very interesting practice, seemingly McLaren has issues with the softer tyre compounds (similar to Ferrari's problems with the hard tyres at Shanghai). And obviously Renault is back to its form.

3 points.

1. Lewis loses most of the time in S2
2. Kimi did less laps than Lewis.
3. Heikki was poor.

Ferrari seemed to be nowhere 2 weeks ago at china and they still got second and third :laugh1: - it seems Renault spent more on 2008 than most of the other non-title-contending teams ; and given the limited funds

Hamiltons problem is obviously in S2, he couldn't come in the 36 this session, don't know how that was in FP1, I believe his personal best was 36.9, but I don't know if he did that consitently...

Alonso and Piquet were the whole practise around the 14th place, I wouldn't cheer to loud, if I were you

McLaren drives with a low downforce setting, thus the good times at S1 and S3 and the bad time at S2.

No the rules say a gearbox must be used for 4 consecutive events. An event is FP3, Quali and Race. :wave:
