2009 Chinese GP – Friday Practice

The usual order was restored in the second free practice with Jenson Button fastest, Nico Rosberg 2 hundreds behind in second and Rubens Barrichello 3rd. The times of Button and Rosberg are about 7 tenths quicker than Lewis Hamilton’s pole position last year …

Lewis Hamilton was the fastest driver out there in the first practice, with Button and Barrichello behind him. Ferrari cars seemed to be struggling a lot with their tyres during the first session. The temperatures in Shanghai were rather cool during the first session, about 18 degrees ambient and 33 degrees track. It was all sunny though.

    McLaren are running a nifty little rear interim diffuser on there car which i’m sure is helping them a little with times, but definitely not enough to top time sheets.s Looks like maybe they have solved a few of the issues that have haunted them in the opening races. Maybe i will have to change my tips…..tough choice.
